**Great Big Labor Thread for the week of 4/3/17**

As previously agreed upon, we are trying to avoid multiple individual labor threads and questions about labor. Here is the place to talk labor, inductions, worries, fears, and/or questions. I believe we said we'd do it on a weekly basis, someone correct me if I'm wrong

*Idea stolen from O16/J17 and Text from O16* --> EVERYTHING STOLEN FROM FEB17

Post here anything labor related! Really, anything. Whether your water breaks, your contractions are irregular or timetable, you're dilating, you're in pre-term labor or false labor, or even on the way to the hospital! This is the thread for all of that. And also - if anyone has any questions about labor related issues/symptoms/things, post those here too. Not that we are doctors, but some STM and TTM ladies may have experience or advice!

  • I've been having Braxton hicks contractions, so my body is gearing up. My goal is to go into labor during Super Kids Day at school. (Totally joking, but that day does fall on my due date.)

    Wtf mobile bumping sucks keeps getting cutoff. Met with OB and MFM and it looks like I have a partial placenta abruption which is causing the bleeding and contractions about 5-6 min apart. They've given me 5 doses of meds to slow down the contractions since I'm only 32 weeks. And I've been given my first round of steroids. Right now their goal is to keep him in through the weekend and then work from there. They've let me know however that I'm here through the duration of the pregnancy
    Oof. Sending lots of positive vibes that your baby can stay put for as long as possible. So sorry you have to be on hospital stay now.

    @schnitz9 Oh, I'm sorry for the hospital stay. I hope everything goes well!! Hopefully, you can get someone to bring you some light reading. Sending positives vibes you way ~~~~~ :)

    I have a question, are actual labor contractions (mild) ever followed by nausea? Have any of you experienced this? I started to feel something similar to this yesterday.. I am seeing my MW today, but I obviously can't wait for an answer.

    For me yes I vomited during both labors. But only when I was well into active labor. I vomited from the intensity of the pain. During early labor I didn't experience any nausea.

    @kat81 So Tuesday, I noticed I started to lose pieces of my mucus plug, then yesterday I started to feel mild back pain followed by nausea-not to the point of throwing up.

    I had eaten breakfast, and once these symptoms started I sat down, drank water and ate a banana, but I still felt the pulsing back pain throughout the day..

    I did call my MW and she said if it was bearable I could wait to see her today at my weekly appt.

    I don't know, I just have a feeling I'll be going into labor sooner than my DD. So, I'd like to know about experiences of the weeks leading up to DD..

    @CarmCeG: I (like @kat81) vomited during my actual labor, during those "real" contractions, so I wouldn't put it out of the realm of possibility to have nausea happen during mild or preterm labor or BH. But I'd def ask your MW. (And then maybe post again with what she tells you, so that we can learn if it's common/normal/expected/a red flag. Thanks!)

    @SKZW I deff will! I also think its not far from normal seeing as every woman/pregnancy is different. I haven't had nausea throughout my pregnancy, so I guess it'd be fair to start experiencing it now or during labor lol

    @CarmCeG the day I was having contractions I felt mildly nauseous. I was given anti nausea meds for labor because I was feeling sick with ds two years ago. My cousin felt nauseous stomach sick all day didn't realize it was labor got to Dr's later that day barely made it to delivery room to have the baby!

    @CarmCeG Third trimester morning sickness is pretty common too so it may be that. Your stomach/intestines/organs in general are pretty much out of room so I personally wouldn't be surprised at any nausea at this point. 

    I did get nauseous during my really strong contractions before I had an epidural but I feel like that was more from the super intense pain.

    @Yiggle09 Interesting! When I looked it up, I found this statement "Flu-like symptoms, including mild nausea and diarrhea, are yet another sign that labor may be imminent" ...

    this is why I'm interested in knowing.. I'll be heading in for my appointment soon and I'll deff let you ladies know what my MW says!

    both times Ive had "real" contractions so far this pregnancy, the whole day before they started I felt gross. I kept trying to explain to my mom how I felt and I couldn't, just that I felt gross and off and then later contractions started. I would think nausea could be possible, just like some people get diarrhea.
    CarmCeG
  • @carmceg when i was actually pushing at the end (even with the epidural) I kept feeling like i was going to throw up, so I think during labor it is very common.

    it stinks because so many things are just "normal pregnancy symptoms" like nausea and vomiting... basically I think it can happen at any time for any reason during pregnancy and they will say its normal. I think it depends on the other symptoms with it. But let us know what MW says.
