I'm currently 30 weeks and 3 days pregnant, but i've been having diarrhea for the past 4 days atleast twice a day and have had cramps for the past two days maybe once or twice a day...what does this mean?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having diarrhea and cramps during third trimester could suggest pelvic congestion. In few women it is also a sign of onset of labor and cervical dilatation. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician at the earliest for a thorough check to rule out signs of early labor/premature labor. Go ahead with ultrasound scan (to look for fetal wellbeing) and NST test (to look for uterine activity). Further management would be decided based on the examination and investigation results.
