Is it normal?

At 38 weeks, is it normal to have the runs but be constipated at the same time? I've been feeling like I have to go to the bathroom (runs) but when I try to go I'm mostly constipated and whatever does come out is very lose like the runs.

  • I'm pretty sure it's your body getting ready for labor. Good luck!

  • It does sound normal to me.

  • Probably getting ready for birth, but when in doubt call your ob.

  • It does sound like your body preparing for labor...if you have some handy, a bowl of raisin bran or other high fiber cereal, and a little extra water, may help get things moving more smoothly.
