I would just go to the Hospital and get checked out. You could be in very early labor
and something worst. I would not wait and see! Go in for the baby's health. Please keep us posted on your health please!

If you are 38 weeks, you should be seeing the doctor EVERY week. This doesn't sound normal, unless your body is in early labor. I think you should go in and see them. They should check your cervix to see if you are dilated at all and maybe a CBC (complete blood count) to see what else is going on. Any trouble with urinating? Any pain or burning??? No chance of mono, right? -- Call your doc and get an appt. You should be there once a week or more. Also, possibly preeclampsia. Doesn't sound like it, but better to rule it out than not know. GOOD LUCK. It's almost over!!! And then the total lack of sleep begins. Wish you the best.

If you are concerned, which it seems like you are, my advice would be to just call your doctor. He'll ask you for your symptoms and can probably tell you over the phone if it's no big deal or if he wants you to come in. I know I always hated calling the doctor if I was worried about something because I didn't want to seem stupid for calling about something silly. But, honestly, the only one who will make you feel better and be able to give you a completely accurate answer would be your doctor. Call him anytime with any question; that's why they're on call and that's why they get paid the big bucks.

I got a viral infection with my second very close to the end of my pregnancy, I was severly dehydrated. If you are not able to hold anything down, like water or any kind of fluid you need to go to the er. Dehydration can cause the lightheadedness and dizziness.

Quoting Kimberly:

I know how it feels to feel down and crying all the time and not feeling good enough to be a mom to donna, i went to my ob clinic and they dr that saw me said if i didnt feel like i was gonna hurt donna then i was feeling the baby blues and to come back if i felt like i would hurt donna, now i hide what i am feeling from people and take my frustrations out on myself and will hole myself up in the bathroom for a while and cry and hit the floor. sounds bad but i would never hurt donna anyway



kim this is not normal you should go to a different doc or even to your family doc and tell him your symptom because you defintaly have postpardom from the sounds of it and i know right now your not hurting your baby but that could change before you even realize it. i know everytime i take my baby to her check ups with a different doctor than my own they always ask me if i am depressed  or feeling down. please seek help from another source this should be the best time of your life and its ok to ask for help.

Actually Ellah, I felt exactly the way you are discribing immediately after I gave birth. In fact I was still in the hospital while feeling this way and I spoke to my doctor when she came to check on me and she advised me that was I was feeling was called "baby blues" which she said was absolutely normal after giving birth. However, she did tell me that if I was feeling that way for more that 2 weeks, THAT would NOT be normal. In any event, be sure to call your doctor and make them aware that you are having these feelings....especially if it's been more than 2 weeks. God Bless!

Sounds like postpartum depression. I suffered it after having both of my children. It does get better if you take care of yourself. There are many natural supplements/herbs which will help hormone swings and put your body back into balance. I know St. Johns Wort is one of them. Good luck.

I'd say definitely see your doctor if you don't feel right, but also it sounds like your body might be gearing up for labor? Throwing up is sometimes part of dilating, and sometimes your body might be telling you to stock up on sleep to get ready for baby! But if you're concerned at all, by all means talk to your doctor! I'm surprised you don't have weekly visits at 39 weeks!

Trust your instincts... If something feels wrong, call the doctor. Better to call and it be nothing than not call and something is wrong.

ellah, no it is not normal to feel depressed all the time. you could be suffering post pardom depression. this happens to a lot of women, but you do need to go to you doctor and get help. take care of yourself so you can take care of your precious baby.

I never took chances, if some thing seemed even a little off, I called my Dr. right away. Most of the time it was nothing. But better safe than sorry. If you think something is wrong, call your Dr.

hey i was sick to my stomach at 38 weeks just like i was when i first was pregnant. my doctor seemed to think it was strange, because i had been fine, she told me it might be a cold or virus so to drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest. I would talk to ur doc.. better safe then sorry right... best of luck :)

You definitely have postpardom depression!  Call your doctor and get some help for the kids sake before you get more depressed and hurt yourself or the kids.

What you're feeling is NOT normal and you should get some help because it sound like you have postpardom depression and should seek medical attention before it takes over you!

That is your body telling you to get ready! Do you have a spare set of hands to help you with your other children? Each pregnancy is different.

Ask the doctor to check your iron. i just had my 3rd baby and found out I needed iron after having the same symptoms well not the throwing up but everything else. it turned out that my prenatal vitamins did not have iron and I craved more white meat vs red meat during this pregnancy. Once I took the iron felt so much better..hope this helps:)
