question for those of you who had umm, system flushing, (upset stomachs) prior to labor?

how long before having your baby did it begin? days? weeks? also, did any of you have increased concentrated urine, drooling, or water-retaining/swelling that you didn't have previously?

  • Mine started after labor. My water broke and 2 hours later I had diarrhea until my body was empty. My doctor said that can be very normal for many women. I've never heard of it happening before labor though.

  • 'system flushing' nice way of putting it.

    only did it happen for #2. and it was a couple days before I went into labour.

    #1 I was severely retaining water (it was GROSS) ankle to thigh was swollen and icky.

    #3...well she was a whole other ball of wax. lmao
