Ok this symptom is completely new to me, any answers?

Ok, for the last week, my lower back has been sore or really hurting, I am getting occassional pelvic pressure, I am having contractions (some are very light to the point, I only know they are there when i put my hand on my belly or some of them hurt like hell) and I have diarhhea a little bit, does this mean anything? BTW I am 24w1d.

  • Sounds like Braxton Hicks contractions and the diarrhea could be cause by anything from something you ate to to much liquid.

  • Sounds like Braxton HIcks. to me, as well. Make sure you are well-hydated, and resting as much as you can.

  • They're most likely braxton hick's contractions. My lower back hurt during my later pregnancy as well, so that's pretty normal. I don't remember if I had the runs (lol), but I'm sure I did...I was all out of wack when I was pregnant! My BH contractions hurt too.
