Early labor- really nauseous?

Was told Friday when I was in hospital with reduced movements ( this is fine now) that I was in early labour, my cervix is soft, 1cm dilated and has shortened to 2cm. They done a sweep for me. This didn’t really do anything for the first time so I had a second sweep yesterday. Was having contractions that I was timing last night it was about 1 every 15 mins and getting stronger. Took some paracetamol and managed to get off to sleep for a little while but when I woke the contractions had stopped.
I have a constant pain in my back and lower belly and am feeling really nauseous this morning.
Is there any way things could start up again?

I'm not sure about the stopping and starting but I felt nauseous the minute my waters broke (the contractions also started coming thick and fast and I went from 0 - 4cm dilated within 3hrs). Is this your first baby? I was surprised by how far into labour I was when I was examined as, although the contractions hurt, they were nowhere near as bad as I'd imagined.

Sounds like it could be promising for you! Good luck x
