Well I'm 40 weeks tomorrow but since I've woken up I feel really nauseas and I keep gagging sad the thought of food makes me want to be sick, and I can only just stomach water. I had some juice when I woke up which I managed but now all I can sip on is water. I'm sort of scared to eat as I really don't want to throw it up. is this normal this late in the day? I'm feeling pretty exhausted too, and can't be bothered to get dressed blush

I'm 40+6 and have spent a lot of this week dry heaving and haven't eaten much. I've felt awful most of the week, I did last time once I hit 40 weeks too.

On the other hand you could be getting ready for the baby to arrive. smile Fingers crossed.

Well I managed some brunch and a light snack. so weird as all throughout my 3rd trimester I've eaten like a horse!

I know you are gagging to go into labour but it could just as easily be an off day! smile

K8eee Sat 22-Mar-14 18:30:44

Greentshirt how did you know grin grin

LittleMachine Sat 22-Mar-14 18:57:31

I've been the same K8eee, but this week I've lived on apples and caramel eggs!

K8eee Sat 22-Mar-14 19:37:29

Ah caramel eggs!!! I am envious envy thankfully I have got my appetite back and managed turkey stroganoff for dinner.

little how far are you?

LittleMachine Sat 22-Mar-14 20:55:38

I was due last Sunday hmm
I went 11 days over last time.

K8eee Sat 22-Mar-14 20:58:21

Oh shock confused are you being induced this week?

LittleMachine Sat 22-Mar-14 21:00:38

Yes, I'm booked in for Wednesday, I'll be 40+10. Very nervous! Do you feel like you're close? Are you having a sweep this week?

98percentchocolate Sat 22-Mar-14 21:01:40

I felt awful the day before I went into labour - this may be a good sign!

K8eee Sat 22-Mar-14 21:18:03

Good luck for Wednesday unless it happens before! smile well I've got an appt at the mw Tuesday not sure if they do a sweep there and then or later in the week confused

LittleMachine Sat 22-Mar-14 21:29:13

Thank you smile

It varies between primary care trusts I think. Here they do one on your due date, but others don't offer one.

greentshirt Sun 23-Mar-14 08:40:15

Any news?

K8eee Sun 23-Mar-14 09:20:54

No envy am going to trying and do a lot of.moving about today see if that's of any help confused

LittleMachine Sun 23-Mar-14 13:11:32

Are you feeling any better?

K8eee Sun 23-Mar-14 15:59:11

Yeah a lot better thanks smile a friend of mine has suggested I eat a really hot curry confused apparently because it gives you the thing of an upset stomach the spasms can start things off

LittleMachine Sun 23-Mar-14 17:30:32

I had a curry the night I went into labour last time, but I'd already had about 40 curries in days before that!

Glad you're feeling better.

K8eee Sun 23-Mar-14 18:19:33

Well I've suggested it to dh and he's well up for me giving anything a go blush we've tried having sex but that triggered nothing angry we're going to cinema in a sec so maybe the loudness of that might startle it into action followed by a hot curry and guaranteed toilet trips in the morning maybe it will do something. I can but try. how are you feeling?

LittleMachine Sun 23-Mar-14 20:52:55

We've tried lots of sex. Always worth trying again wink

I'm ok thanks, very uncomfortable but resigned to my Wednesday induction!

K8eee Mon 24-Mar-14 00:15:41

Let me know how it goes! I have a feeling I'm going to be left hanging here for an induction too sad

yeah true, and it keeps dh happy as well I suppose grin especially as he shan't be allowed there anytime soon after the birth blush

JustDanni Mon 24-Mar-14 09:21:25

May be a sign of impending labour.
My very close friend had nausea and food aversion with all 3 of her babies in the last week.

LittleMachine Mon 24-Mar-14 15:14:19

I will let you know. It's early in the overdue process for you, it's still more likely you'll go on your own, don't worry.

K8eee Mon 24-Mar-14 16:15:10

my appetite isn't as much as it was before I felt funny the other day, but I've just got in from having a walk around the shops with dh, and a couple of ladies have commented that im still carrying quite high.
