Nausea and diarrhea at 37 weeks ElenaBiani 1 child; Houston, Texas 60 posts

Hi, I'm 37 weeks + 4 days and about a week and a half ago there were two days that I woke up at the same time (around 4 am) with extreme nausea. I mean, it literally woke me up and the first time, I tried to control myself so I wouldn't throw up and grabbed some rubbing alcohol to smell to calm down the nausea and it just made me throw up. The next morning same thing happened but I just had my water ready and some crackers and it went away after about 30 minutes. I never had morning sickness during my pregnancy which I should mention is my first pregnancy. Anyway, after those two episodes, I started having diarrhea and still do. Is this normal? I just hope this means labor is coming soon because I'm tired. Anyone else experience something like this?

yeah someone totally just posted about this. apparently those are signs that labor is coming pretty soon. your body is clearing out the system. it usually happens a week or so before delivery - according to sources here on baby gaga!

I'm at 36 weeks and having a lot of sudden nausea also, but only in the mornings, sometimes I do throw up and sometimes I don't but I haven't had the diarrhea, I'm having the opposite problem.

Thanks for the quick responses. I hope ya'll are right and this is a sign of labor. I've also been having bad menstrual like cramps this week and I mean bad, to the point where everytime I go pee, I expect to see pink or some kind of colored discharge. Ugh, I'm so tired of this. and now i'm just looking for natural ways to induce labor lol. This morning I had the fresh pineapple, mango and papaya. Let's hope that works, if not, we'll try some other method. This baby needs to come on out, everyone is anxious to meet her and I'm anxious to go back to sleeping on my stomach.
