Oh forgot when I was typing this I was thinking I know some women thinks their water leaked when it was actually them peeing themselves. That will be my excuse for that one. Not at all wanting that to start now but it would make sense since my girl is on my bladder. Oh no! Come on kegels work for me!
How far along are you? I have been having all the same symptoms and they are not worried. My dr said the mucus plug will grow back braxton kicks is normal he is not worried about the cramping and back pain i think it all just happens o and i never asked about the loose stool i didnt knw it could mean anything... but then again when i asked him how to know if i was really starting labor he said when i have the worst pain i ever felt less than 5 minutes apart to come get checked so maybe my dr is stupid that sounded dumb to me but hey im not a doctor
No she actually said pretty much the same thing. She said a few Braxton Hicks an hour are fine but when it gets up to six an hour to.come in immediately. I'm only 22 Weeks. The only..reason why I even brought up the loose.stool and pressure was for chit chat purposes just telling her how I was feeling that day and how I thought I ate something bad while she was filling out my chart ending our session. We do have to trust our doctors............. So.tough lol
Sorry your going through an emotionally stressful time. I've had all the same symptoms off and on for a few weeks and my midwife explained them away in a similar fashion to your excuses. I even called labor and delivery once when I had 6 cramping feelings in an hour (every 10 minutes or so). They told me to watch them for another hour or two and call back if they didn't go away. Sure enough they did. I hope this is all just part of the normal pregnancy discomforts. Good luck. Definitely keep us posted on any changes.
Hi, gosh I've been having vaginal itch, lower back pain, left side/rib hurting, loose stool and leg cramps. I was doing some research and hot temperatures/summer increases premature labour one reason being due to dehydration and the lack of liquid retention. I also read somewhere that braxton hicks is associated with insufficient water intake. I try my best to drink at least 2lrs of water daily. The last time i felt my stomach hardening was April 8, i was floating on my back in the Caribbean sea and after approx. 10 mins my belly started getting stiff. I got out the water and got something cold to drink. It took about 20-30mins before any relief and i notice the difference then is that i wasn't drinking as much water daily. Im also 22+6. I spoke to my doctor yesterday about the vaginal itch and she didnt seem very concerned. I told her its been about two weeks now off and on. She was like, would you like me to do a swab test and i was like sure, if you don't mind. Because i dont know why that wouldst be her first response telling me about over the counter itch relief. I don't relief, I want it to stop.
