Update Question....

The other day I asked about getting sick and when I went to the bathroom it was painful in my lower abdomen. Well the next day I started getting the runs. I went to the bathroom like 5 times. Then today I've been to the bathroom about 4 times already (with the runs). Yesterday I was having some light cramping and today I feel mostly cramping in my lower back off and on. I'm 35 weeks pregnant. Is this normal? Every where I've read said that it sounds normal.

  • Sounds like your body is preparing itself for labor :)

  • I had pretty much the same symptoms with our 1st, I was sick for 2days then went into labor. I have heard from my aunt (who is a midwife) that it is just your body preparing. GOOD LUCK:)

  • This is my 2nd pregnancy and I never had any signs with my daughter that I was gonna go into labor. I never had braxton hicks or cramping or back pain or any of that. Not until I was 41 weeks pregnant and my water broke. This time is completely different.

  • Lol I dont think I could get dehydrated even if I wanted to. I drink about a gallon of water on a daily basis and that was before I got pregnant. Now I drink more. I've always been that way. So basically its my body preparing for labor, which could happen between now and 5 weeks from now or later?
