Is a cold a sign that labor is near? Cole's Momma ♥ Due September 15 (girl); 1 child; Portsmouth, Virginia 86 posts

I woke up yesterday with a sore throat, and today I feel a cold coming on. I can't even remember the last time I had a cold. Probably a year or two ago.. I NEVER get sick. Someone told me this was a sign that labor is near. I have never heard of such a thing. Is that true?

Not that I know of. But then again, anything is possible. Perhaps you have the cold because your body is under so much stress?

not a cold but yes a stuffy nose.
the hormones that soften your cervix will also make your nasal passages swell up

I have no clue, but I wouldn't say no because everyone's bodies are different and this might be the way your body lets you know that something is happening.
