Always talk to your dr about any questions you have!!  If it doesn't get worse today then I say wiat till tomorrow to talk to them.  But if it gets dramatically worse call immediately!!

Hot flashes are completely normal during pregnancy.  Ive been having them for months.
Diarrhea can be a sign that your body is getting ready for delivery, but not always.  Ive been 'loose' for about 2 months now & sometimes its diarrhea. (I know TMI)
My Dr said if Im having painful contractions & diarrhea then it could be labor.

I would deffinitly talk to your Dr. tomorrow at your Appt.  he might want to check your cervix.

Hot flashes are pretty normal since our hormones fluctuate so much during pregnancy.  I hope they ease up a bit for you.

I am 36 weeks and have the same issues.   

Acidophilus Take acidophilus with meals whenever you feel sanitation or water supply may be questionable. This will help build up the "friendly" bacteria in your intestines. Either a tablespoon of liquid or one to two capsules should do the trick. One good product is called Culturelle (a probiotic formula).

Apple cider vinegar For a preventive measure start taking a teaspoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of honey in a glass of water half an hour before each meal a few days before your trip. Continue this regimen during your trip.

Bismuth Subsalicylate The active ingredient found in Pepto-Bismol, bismuth subsalicylate, can be taken either after an attack or as a preventive measure. Be careful if you take aspirin regularly as Pepto-Bismol contains salicylates, which added to that in the aspirin may cause symptoms such as ringing in the ears
