I'm 37+3 and this morning i woke up had breakfast and was sick. I've felt very off all day constant tummy ache kind of period pain chronic back ache and awful spd. I'm also feeling grumpy, can't get comfy, more discharge and getting very strong braxton hicks.

Does this sound like something could be starting or is it wishful thinking?

I think you might might be in very early stages of labour - I'd call the hospital to see what they advise to do

It sounds like labour to me. Good luck!

you can be sick any time during pregnancy/labour - I was really sick an hour after DS5 was born!

you don't get back ache or Braxtons with tummy bug,

oooh hungry - your body knows what's going on....I ate all day like mad the day before DS3 was born!

not sure about boob pain (perhaps colostrum is getting ready?)
just give midwives a call and good luck!
