    Hi Liss88
    I did have the proper flu during labour with my 1st DD (not a cold). I fell sick 24 hours before my waters broke and it was the sickest I have EVER been. I really hope you are not getting the flu as it is a hard and slow recovery after giving birth. Have you had the flu before?

    Yep I had it 2 years ago and it was horrid, but I have more of a head cold I think my nose and throat are driving me crazy and my head is heavy and feeling very full lol, I'm only 37 weeks and baby hasn't engaged yet but heaps of people keep saying that there babies where not engaged and then bam they got this cold and then they went into labour so I was hoping other had experienced this so I could watch out for signs

    Yes this sounds like me. I was only 34 weeks when my DD was born. I dont think my waters would have broken if I didnt have the flu. I think the fevers I was having brought it on. I also had high BP so not sure if this contributed. I hope your feeling better soon and that bubs hangs on for a little longer
