Upset Tummy

Hi all,

I'm new here! 39 weeks with first baby, just wanted a bit of advice. Sorry for TMI.

My tummy felt very unsettled last night. Started with tummyache (hubby had epic panic that I was going into labour!) at about 10pm. I then spent half the night on and off the loo!
Still having tummy pains and cramps and feel very queasy now.

I've read that upset tummy is common before birth, body's way of "clearing out" so to speak before pushing. I'm really hoping so, and not just a horrible bug. Could this be the start of labour?

I've no idea, but am bumping this for you.

But of course you may be cuddling your first-born by now, in which case, congratulations and yes, it was the start of labout.

I think that if you are feeling nauseous, coupled with cramps then it probably sounds like a tummy bug which are very common at this time of year, but who knows? Keep rested and drink plenty of fluids and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
