    Default 36 weeks...nausea, cramps and tiredness...any ideas?

    Hi everyone,
    I'm just over 36 weeks with my first baby and for the past few days I've had a lot of nausea and cramping (which is sometimes pretty painful), and have been exhausted. Is this just a normal part of pregnancy or could it be signs of pre-labour? I have a MW app in two days so I can check then but wanting people's opinions.
    Thanks :-)

    The tiredness is definitely normal. I had to have afternoon kindy naps by that stage. I'm sure the MW with check your blood pressure but it might possibly be a lack of iron?! I started iron tablets at around the time and started to feel much better than I had before.

    I was worried you would say it's normal haha i'm definitely ready to meet bub! Though it could be the iron thing, I had low iron about half way through and got given iron tablets...i've been a little bad with them recently and not been taking them everyday as I hate swallowing tablets, hadn't thought it could be that though, will see how I go
    Thanks for your replies :-)

    Be careful what you wish for! I was saying the same thing from about 34 weeks onwards. In the end bub did have to come out at 37 weeks and I sat in the hospital the night before thinking "I'm not ready, I'm not ready".
