gross question..

Okay. So I'm 37 weeks, 4 cm dilated. Having contractions often but not making progress (sorry I've been asking a million questions lately!)

Well I was cramping worse than normal and thought I was going to have diarrhea. Well I had a ton of gas but no diarrhea. Went to the bathroom this time and had bad diarrhea...my food is not even digesting...it's coming out as it was...like I can tell what it was that I ate (sorry I know ti's gross) Is this normal? It freaked me out.

  • I've never heard of that. If you are really concerned I'd say call your dr. It might just be the beginning of labor.
