Hey mommas. This is totally TMI but I've had really bad diarrhea for three days now. I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow. Yesterday at my appointment I had no dilation at all. Nothing going on down there. Up until now I've had braxton hicks one on top of the other for the last week or so. But late last night and today I've had this crampy/pain feeling at the top of my uterus that kind of shoots down. Not regular, can't time them.
Could all this be pre-labor signs or is the crampy/pain feeling caused by the diarrhea and I should take something for it?
I guess I should ask, did any of you have symptoms like this during prelabor/shortly before labor started?
You could have diarrhea for a few weeks before labor, so it could be a sign but that doesn't mean it will happen today. I had it for a week before I went into labor
Thanks. This is a new thing for me, never did it with my other pregnancies so I was just curious. I am in no hurry to get this little guy out, he needs to stay put for a couple more weeks!
same as M walls. I started having it from 36w until the day I went into labour (39w). I dont think it s a sign of labour, just a sign of your body getting ready for it, unfortunately it can last for weeks
Quoting nothing to see:" ...unfortunately it can last for weeks"
yepp just what they said, it could last for week.. u could have it DURING labor =) I sure did with my daughter.. wonderful delivery lol
Mine started at 37 weeks and was induced at 41. It sucked lol. I was hoping it was a sign too.
Thanks ladies. I think I'm more hoping for an end to it rather than an end to the pregnancy, this stuff is no fun. lol
