First Time Mom Question

My body has been changing in the last few days. I am not sure if it has anything to do with labor. Please do not laugh :-) I have suddenly had to go number 2 after eating every meal. It is like my body is trying to stay cleaned out. I have suddenly started being crampy in my stomach. It is just a cramp. I went to the dr Thursday. I was 50% effaced, -1 station, and no dilation. What is your opinion ladies? Does it have anything to do with labor or just a part of it? Thanks!

  • Its a part of it.

  • It is your body preparing for labor it will keep itself flushed out and the cramps are most likely BH contractions that are beginning to be painful.

  • sounds like that baby is ready to come but you can never be too sure with labor.

  • That happens prior to labor for many, but it can happen within weeks before... It is not a certain indicator.

    When are you due? Are you hydrated and eating healthily?
