ok so i have been experiencing some weird things in the past couple of days and i was just wondering if anybody else has gone through the same thing? i have been having like 4 bowel movements a day for the past few days(sorry for the tmi).i'm also getting stronger cramping in my lower stomach, but today my stomach feels super hard and i was getting like sharp pains from the top of my stomach to the bottom. I know that i've been getting braxton hicks in my lower stomach, but the pain in my upper stomach is different. I saw my doctor 3 days ago and she said everything is good and i'm dialated to a 1 the babies head is down & cervix is still hard.

Sounds like your body is getting ready for labour! When the contractions get more painful & come more frequently you might want to get checked out, as it could be hard to determine when labour has actually begun. You may go early, but you could end up staying like this until past your due date so try not to get your hopes up about anything happening yet, just in case! Good luck.

Relation to brim
Hi, I went to the see my consultant at the hospital 4 days ago and she said that the baby's head is really low down, after leaving the hospital i checked in my notes and under the notes relation to brim my consultant has written 1/5. Can you explain to me what this means? Im only 32 weeks yesterday as well
Thanks Lisa

Hi, I am at the end of my 36th week too and had my doc visit two days back.She confirmed that the baby was in cephalic position and will be settling final-down this week and thats why I guess I am also experiencing the same symptoms since yesterday ie crampy lower abdominal pains which at times are slightly sharp (as if diarrehea could start... uuhhh sorry for being abit disgusting!) apart of which also it seems like there is a change in the baby's movement too but after a constant check by keeping my hand on my tummy, lying on my left side for some time (to monitor the movements) and even by having orange+mango juice and lying on your left or sitting with your legs rested straight and up, the movement is justified. So i guess it is a part of the process.. as far as there are no other strange new syptoms such as bleeding, watery discharge flow, fever, sharp continueous contractions or pains and your little one is still moving every now and then... there is no need to worry as such.Good Luck and keep on monitoring your baby's movements and watch out for any new unexpected symptoms coz then you really need to call your doctor.
Take care!

I had never heard of those so I just thought I was getting to heavy for my body..lol...They did get to the point where it was almost unbearable and I finally went to the hospital and was given a c section. I hope this helps and start getting ready it wont be long!!

Im 37 weeks pregnant and about 4 days ago i started having pain in my back that then moved to my lower stomach followed by tighting of my stomach. I read up on it and from what i can tell i was having contractions, they werent regular and only lasted about two and a half hours. I had similar pains lastnight with a very small amount of brown blood or discharge, im not really sure which it was, and today i have had a constant pain in my lower back and stomach to the point of almost not being able to walk. Should i be worried or is this normal?

Is this Labor pains or what?
I am 36 weeks and 3 days, and I have been having diarrhea for the past week (Sorry for all that information) And my stomach has been tighting up all over and on my vagina it has been too but it has a feeling of pressure and a little pain.It doesnt matter if I am laying down or standing up or sitting down it keeps going, Its been doing that every 2 or 3 mins for the past hour and half. My back hurts a little but not where I cant bear it. Is this normal? And is there something I should do?
