Severe diarrhea cramps?

I've been getting severe diarrhea like cramps for 2 days now. I never go to bathroom with these cramps but they seem to be gettin worse. I'm very gassy with them tho. Is this normal at 33 weeks. Nd has anyone experienced this? I have had 3 children but my contractions were never cramps. I have had bad achy constant back pain for over a week now but my dr chalked it up to be a pulled muscle without checking me or monitoring contractions. I know the baby dropped nd I can feel pressure nd pain in my hips nd legs but I keep yellin myself it's normal. It's not labor. It's to early. Etc. I've called dr nd all he says is its normal pregnancy stuff without even listening to me completely.

I'm almost 34weeks. I get cramps and some contractions. But I'm not gassy. The doctor gave me 2liters of fluid and I feel sooo much better. Maybe if you drink more water or powerade it may make you feel better too.

Personally i thimk if i was in ur shoes id go to my hospital and get checked....sounds like what i went through with my first son and i ended up having him at 35 weeks 6 days...sometimes i feel like docs n nurses dont really listen. Follow ur gut instinct n make em listen. Best of luck !.

I instantly got some water nd drank it. Took shower. Got heating pad nd put on my back. Took a Zantac thinking its indigestion or heartburn. I'm layin on my left side watching movie nd they're not lettin up. I've gotten contractions nd usually they let up. But never have I gotten cramps with it. I've noticed I'm very swollen down there. To the point it's purple looking. Nd looks like something is coming out. I researched it nd it said vasicrose veins can cause that. So I talked myself into thinking its jus pregnancy. But today I'm convinced it may be more. These cramps feel like I'm about to poo on myself. Does the baby move when a contraction is happening? It's been four years since I had my daughter. I've forgotten everything. The baby is moving but not much. Jus feels very tight when she does nd very painful when she's moving. It stops me to the point I have to take a deep breath.

You need to go on in. have you called doctor? Better safe than sorry. If it is labor, you need to stop it before water breaks.

I called dr earlier nd the dr. Well the nurse rather said its normal. Every time I call them they make it out to be no big deal so I talk myself into staying home nd dealin with the swelling nd pain. I haven't felt right for a few weeks now nd everything seems to get more intense. How do you time back contractions if the pain is constant nd achy? R the cramps I'm having contractions? Or jus part of being pregnant? I've gotten light period cramps throughout this pregnancy but not like these.

She got hiccups this morning nd they were right at top of my pelvic bone. When she does actually move i can feel when she kicks its right at my belly button. When before it was under my boobs.

At 33 weeks my waters leaked and I had constant back aches. Ended up a night in hospital just to be sure. Thankfully im now 35+4 and babys still inside. I suggest you call them back until your listened to, you know your own body. I didnt feel right for days before my waters leaked. Best be safe, if they dont takr notice is there any chance you could just go in? Best of luck

I have myself an hour to lay down nd are what happens. So far it's not gone away or let up yet. I don't go back to dr til next week I believe. I'm feeling a whole lot of pressure in my rear like I need to go. But when I got up to go. There was nothing. Should I try to take a nap? If I can. I know I've heard if its labor you may not be able to rest thru it. But I've also heard to take a nap when you can if its early labor.

contractions can feel like cramps. I'd say your best bet is to go to er since your doctor won't listen to you. You know your body. If you feel something needs to be done then go on in. let them look at things. If they say it's normal AFTER they monitor you then atleast you know. But I really think its best if you get things checked just to make 100% sure baby is ok.

Please go to the ER. You sound like you're in labor.
