38 weeks pregnant and vomiting: what's wrong?

Vomiting can be a sign of labor. If you are experiencing back pain, cramping or contractions along with vomiting you might be in labor. Call your doctor or go to the hospital to get checked out.

Vomiting can also be a sign of an infection such as food poisoning or the flu. If you are experiencing vomiting along with a fever or other signs of infection you are probably sick. Drink plenty of fluids, get rest, and talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.
