I woke up this morning with serious nausea. I figured I was hungry so I ate some Cheerios. Well, that didn't help so I drank water thinking maybe I was thirsty, no luck... So a few hours went by and it finally went away, but now it's back again and I am wondering if it's unusual to experience nausea at 39 weeks pregnant?

I don't believe it's unusual, no. In fact, indigestion problems seem to be kind of common. I know a lot of women experience diarrhea before they go into labor... maybe the body's way of cleansing itself out? You might want to mention it to your doctor on Monday, but I think it's probably normal.
