Is Vomiting a sign of labor?

I am 38 weeks pregnant tomorrow with my second child. My first was rather difficult as I had to be induced at 41 and a half weeks (with 36 hours of labor...). I had no signs of labor with my first until they induced me, no braxton hicks contractions, etc. This past week I have been getting really bad cramps (at the worst of times of course hehe), like while I am taking a shower it feels like the baby is literally kicking down. These pains are not at all regular and they come as a suprise most of the time. The past 3 days I have been vomiting quite a bit. Is this a sign that labor is coming soon? As I said before, my first child came with no signs of labor until being induced so I'm not sure... Thanks for the help :)

Hello,

I suggest  you see your ob if you are having nausea and vomiting.  Neither is a typical sign of the onset of labor and your ob will want to investigate other possible causes.  

Best regards,

Dr. Downing
