I know that what I am about to talk about is terrible but I need to know if anyone else is having a case of diarrhea? I am 36 weeks pre go and I have had just terrible diarrhea today. the last few days I just had soft stool but now it is bad. I think that I might have gone at least 5-6 time today. This is my second child and I don't remember this from the first time. my oldest is almost 7 so there are a lot of things that I don't remember. My back has been hurting all day but it is a really dull pain in the lower back my hips hurt too but I don't think that I am in labour or anything. I know that I am dilated 1cm but I have been walking a lot and bouncing on my ball. Anyone else have this issue?

Have you contacted your OB about this? Going too much can cause dehydration and you could end up in the hospital. I'd call the on-call doc or call your OB in the morning. I had the same issues about a week or so ago and I just started drinking more water and it eventually let up. But it wasn't nearly as often as you stated.

I'm no help, I had the opposite issue and was constipated most of my pregnancy.

It could be a sign of early labor actually....have you timed your back pains to see if its consistent? My aunt didn't think her back ache was labor ....she timed it tho and it was

I didn't even think about her being in labor just focused on the diarrhea part. Get checked out mama. With back pains and diarrhea you very well could be in labor. Those both are early signs of labor.

all I have been drinking is water so I wasn't worried about dehydrating. I did the finger nail check too because that was my first thought and the color came back. the back pain is a constant though just a steady pain.
