flu-like symptoms before labor?

I am 32 weeks with baby #4.Never had symptoms like this with my others kidos. For the past couple of days i have had flu like symptoms.
& now am having lose bowl movments.
NO FEVER though. Im always drinking water. & eating like normal. Im wondering if all of these symptoms could be a sign labor is soon. I have a history of premature water breaking@ 34....& i was taking progestrone shots but started having reactions. I had a test done@30week because i have had alot of bh contrations, i cant remember the test name "dang prego brain" well it came back positive of me having a 40% i could go into premature labor within a couple of weeks. My dr checked/ & tested me on a thursday. No cervical change. Went to the hospital the next day because of test results they checked me there. Cervix is dialated outside 1cm in 20% effaced. Could all these flu symptoms be a sign.
Moms did any one feel sick wih no fever before labor?

Flu like symptoms are definitely signs of preterm labor. Could also just be the flu but keep an eye out for  contractions . If they are Braxton hicks you should try to lay down and drink water they should stop but if they don't then I would get it checked oout

Yea once they get more frequent and strong like 15-20 min apart call your doctor or go to hospital.  Good luck :)
