34 weeks... **TMI**

I am 34 weeks pregnant and was in the hospital this week with preterm labor. I lost my mucus plug on monday. I am now on a pill to control my contractions, and I also got 2 steroid shots to mature the babies lungs.

Well I have been having diarreah since yesterday morning and didnt know if this was something I should be concerned about. I have gone everytime I have went to pee for the last two days. I dont know if I am just being paranoid or if I should be concerned...

  • are you on nifedimean? I think thats what its called? I was on tje samething two weeks ago amd had the same problem. Its a side effect of those pills. I think they are also called procardom? I wouldnt worry, just call your dr and let them know. I had to stop taking them cause i swelled like a balloon.

  • niphedipine or terbutaline? i was on both and had that issue with the niphedipine. you might wanna just inform ur doc, so u dnt get dehydrated which could cause preterm labor :) as you probably know. well good luck!
