38 weeks, frequent bowel movements.. tmi.


I usually have 1 bowel movement a day.
Now for the past week or so I've been having to go at least 2-3 times a day.. usually the stool is loose, but not as loose as diarrhea.

Also been crampy in my lower back/lower tummy, like my period is about to start.. it's not on and off, more like it's there or it's not there.

Is this a "sign" ?

I had more bathroom trips (with the looser stools) in the days leaving up to when I went into labor with my daughter so hopefully it's the case for you

But then again I've been having all that the past week or so as well so who knows!

I hope it's a sign, I'm ready for this baby!

We'll see tomorrow how much my cervix has progressed over the past week.

Last week it was soft or "mushy" is what she called it, VERY low @ +1, 1 cm dilated and 30% effaced.

She said our baby is most ready to come out (being SO low), out of all the women! There's like 4 due before me.

Hello ladies
I am almost 29 weeks with twins and have been treated the last three weeks or so for PTL and am currently on bed rest and nifedipine. I have been having the same issue since last thursday. I mentioned this in labor and delivery when I was there thusday night, but of course it had only been going on a day then... My contractions have also changed ans of last night and actually become uncomfortable- but still no more than 2 an hour and not regular. The pooing 3+ times a day has me concerned though... Will be seeing my Dr again this thursday and will be asking for sure!
