Diarrhea, nausea and braxton hicks... 6 days away from my c Aly Mayer 3 kids; Florida 685 posts

For the last two days I've been battling these badboys, and seriously I'm done with it. I don't know if the nausea and the diarrhea are something I should call my Dr about or not. But now I'm just sore as all hell, cannot sleep, and so uncomfortable I can't think straight...
as far as the braxton hicks, they're getting stronger, to the point where they feel ALOT like my real contractions did with my first child, but I know they're braxton hicks because the time between the contractions vary... I might have 3 at 20 minutes apart, then the next one comes 42 minutes later... I'm just getting so frusterated!
I would LOVE to either have my body (and baby) just decide "ok now!" and go into real labor so I can quit being so miserable, or have it quit until my scheduled C section in 6 days.

That sounds like early labor. Diarrhea, nausea, and contractions, even if they aren't exactly regular or very intense can be a sign of labor. If you don't mind my asking, why are you having a C-section? If you are in labor right now, is there any way you might avoid the c-section?
