TMI: Cramping/Nausea/etc

I've been extremely stressed all day. To the point of tears and a break down. My stomach hurts, it's tight, cramping in abdomen and also I feel like I need to go to the bathroom. However, I just went like 45 minutes ago. Not diarrhea. Just normal. Since I've been pregnant I havent had continuous everyday bowel movements. Especially not twice a day. The feeling of needing to use bathroom comes and goes. Cramping/nausea still continuous. What do you think is going on? Im in the 3rd trimester.

  • A tight, hard abdomen usually is a contraction. I had nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, and contractions two days before my son was born (Emergency C-section due to preeclampsia). It would be a good idea to call your doctor and consult. When in doubt, always call your doctor.

  • I had several bowel movements a day during the last couple of months of each of my pregnancies. It's your body's way of getting ready for labor and totally normal.

  • place your fingertips on your stomach and wait to see if you feel it tighten. Your fingertips are sensitive and you will feel it. If it is tightening then you are contracting. Time them and then make arrangements to go be checked out if you're having them regularly.

  • im due in three weeks and i go every half hour or so and i cramp when i stand up. i was told it was normal depending on each person. as for nausea youll be ok. i still throw up everyday at least once. what helps me is lying down on my side and stretching slightly. and plenty of water.
