so today started off pretty normal, but just a little bit ago i got out of the shower (after feeling really dizzy and just exhausted) and i was getting my pjs on when i started to get really bad pains in my butt & stomach...they were really sharp shooting pain that shot up my rectum and the front of my stomach. i have pooped twice already and even before i was preganant i didnt go that much. i poop maybe once every few days. i have so much pressure on my butt that i can barely walk...is this noraml? what is causing these really sharp pains? i have already lost my plug and now i am timing contractions, im 37 weeks pregnant.

Hard bowel movements? Thats what I had. It took awhile for my body to clean itself out. Like I said though, I would actually suggest going to the emergency room now. If you are pooping and still having these pains they could be labor. So I change my suggestion from "taking a healthy crap" to "going to the emergency room", ;)

I'm happy that you are going to your DR. tomorrow but I will try and help right now. Have you been having diarrhea? You might be having diarrhea. It's your body's way of preparing for birth. I've had that going on for a few days. After you take a REALLY REALLY good crap, you should feel better. If you are worried, go to the emergency room. It's ALWAYS better to be safe than sorry!
