I'm 37 weeks pregnant with my first child. I am due October 21st. I have been having really bad constipation and my doctor told me to take Miralax. Today is the first time I've taken it and I still haven't taken a full BM. Also, I'm having pains in my vagina, and my entire body is completely sore and my ribs feel bruised. At my last check up my dr told me I am 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. I will have horrible back aches but my stomach only gets hard at the top and not the bottom. What is going on? Should I be worried?
You could br having mild contractions! Usually bleeding is the only time to.worry! I'm sure baby is fine. He/she just might be moving down more getting ready for there grand entrance:) but call your doctor if your really worried. You can usually find an on.call Dr to set your mind at ease
