Contractions?Perhaps TMI

Ok so for the past few hours I have been dealing with lower back pain and feel like I have to take a big poop! My belly does get rock hard and then that goes away....but the lower back pain and feeling like I have to take a big poop is quite consistent....

contractions or am I just crazy?

  • I'm sure they're contractions, considering the belly tightening. The one thing you need to do is time them. If you have more than 6 in one hour, it's cause to contact your doctor.
