Cone and tell me it's not going to be that bad. Have caught something from dd, have scratchy throat and sickness feeling already and due next week. Bound to go into labour when I feel like shot, oh and dd doesn't sleep well so am already knacked all the time sad

Btw I know people will have given birth feeling like this and much worse, just looking for some reassurance!

Bet your body waits until you feel better smile (Sorry to not answer the question at all.)

Before giving birth to both dc I had really bad colds, but they seemed to disappear just before labour started.

So will look out for sudden disappearance of cold as a sign of imminent labour

I had a bad cold before I went into labour. During it it seemed to disappear but sadly came back the day after. Either my body dealt with it whilst it got on with more important stuff or I just didn't notice the effects as I was otherwise occupied. Either way it didn't affect teh birth at all or make me feel crap during or just after it.
