I am 32 weeks and 5 days pregnant Today I woke up at 6:00 am with cramping in my upper stomach. I thought it would suside but as i started to walk around it got worse. These sharp pains were horrilbe. I went to the washroom for a BM (wasnt diarrhea about 30 min later I had diarrhea.
After that I just couldnt stand it. I layed down and every so often these pains would come and go (not on a regular basis). I did not have to have any other BM's.
I called my doctor and they told me to go in. Once I arrived they monitored the babys heart, all was well. They had me on a machine for about 20 min and during that 20 min I only had one contraction (normal they said).. better yet, a nurse was present during my pains and said my upper stomach was not hard (eaning no contraction) I decided to go home.
Does anyone know why this could happen? I havent eaten anything today and nothing unusual yesterday. Since ive been home I felt a little pressure while peeing (but none earlier and the nurse confirmed that i was not dilated yet)
Since ive been home, these are the pains ive had:
This is my second cild. my first is 6 and I had a great pregnancy. he was born at 39 weeks and in only 3 hours.
I had a lot of pain in my stomach when I was about 35 weeks. I really thought I was going into labor (if I only knew how much worse the labor pains were going to be!) The only thing that helped me was taking some Tums, or something warm (warm bath, heating pad, etc.) I also timed mine since I thought it was labor. To this day, I still don't know what caused it.
