Can I be getting ready for early labor????

Dear friends,
I am 37 weeks pregnant with my first child, and I start to feel that I want to throw up; why is that???
Also my tummy is getting tight/hard and I still feel baby moving (but it’s different from previous weeks that it’s with Pain). I feel some pain when I walk especially in my lower/bottom of my tummy. I still carrying high right now, but my body starts swollen and bloating. Can I be getting ready for early labor or is it the braxton hicks????

Note: for previous 3 I exhausted myself with/at work. I stand up a lot and was running all around. Does that cause early labor?

hmmmm... being that you're 37 weeks, it could very well be that you may be in early labor. you should time your pain/contractions if you're worried and see if it continues. i'm not sure what the exact number of contractions or pain-related things are, but if you're unsure, it's always good to call your doctor and check in. now, it could just be that your body is getting itself ready for the delivery of the baby these last few weeks leading up to the big day and that those pain you feel are just braxton hicks.

i'm currently at 35 weeks and i feel like my tummy is super tight/hard. it's as if there aren't any more room left for this baby to move around in. i definitely do feel some pain every now and then around my pelvic area, lower tummy, etc. so far now, if it's nothing too major, i say relax and enjoy these last few weeks before the big arrival. i know it's tough trying to get yourself comfy especially when you're so big or just plain uncomfortable, but you are almost there. congrats, by the way. :)

I am at 37 weeks and one of my tell-tale labor signs with my other children has always been vomiting.  I don't know if it will be like this with this one, but I am having extreme tightness and hugs in my belly area tonight during contractions.  Sounds like you are so close :D

Ive been having contractions and im 36 weeks, my dr checked and cervix is still closed.  Could be just braxton hicks.  Watch out for as they call it "bloody show" which is the mucus plug that keeps your cervix closed.
