Do frequent bowel movements mean labor is coming soon?
Sorry if this is gross but do frequent bowel movements mean labor is coming soon? Has anyone ever had this before? For about a week now I have had 5 or 6 bowel movements a day and I have felt kind of crampy. I was more constipated before. Thanks for your help! :)
I go for my weekly visit on Friday so I guess I will just wait. I didn't tell the doctor last week because I didn't really care for her and I thought she was kind of rude! I actually like when I see one of the mid-wives. They seem to know more than the doctors where I go! :)
omg.. I've been wondering the same thing for the past week. I have a VERY strange bm system. Even during pregnancy it pretty much was the same pattern like before. But I'm noticing now that I'm going very often. Almost once a day which for me isnt my norm. I know it sounds weird but I've had that problem all my life.
Anyway, I've been wondering the same thing. I told my bf that she's coming soon just by the changes I'm seeing in my body.
Today I'm having lower back pain and it's stooting to my legs. IT's slight but enough that I notice it. Also, I had cramps earlier. Maybe it's just what happens when you get so close to labor.
I've always had the same problem that newbie has yep, all my life, too. It really bytes. I can't remember for sure if I had freq. bm's, but I think I did. Soft, which (sorry TMI) is way unusual for me. Just be on the look out for more signs like bloody show.... good luck!!! :-)
Me too im 34 weeks today and i've noticed a difference over the last week. Definately more frequent, like twice a day, which is different than before. I was early and so was my mum, i'm hoping its not a sign just yet.
I was originally due May 11th, but they think now I am actually 2 weeks ahead of that so that would be the end of this month-I hope. I have gained 45lbs. UGH!!! I am enormous and it is hard to breath and I am having terrible acid reflux! :( Good luck to you!!!
