    Ok, so I apologise now if any of this post is TMI for some people but I really wanted to ask!
    Ok so I started off bloody constipated, up until about 2 weeks ago I was lucky if I 'went' once a week. It was that bad I had to get some lactulose off the doc and got piles:blush: The lactulose didnt last long though as it gave me bad pains.
    Then I strted going once a day but still quite difficult to do it and had to strain a bit. Now for the past 2 days Ive woken up with belly ache and had to go to the loo quick:blush: Its not runny but its softer than normal and I dont have to strain......Ive been 3 times already today, it was 3 times yesterday too. Also, Is it normal to have the 'trumps' quite a lot?:blush:
    Oh god, Im sorry......I know this thread stinks!:rofl:

    Could this be my 'clearout?'

    Had to ask though:hugs:

    It sounds like it hun.
    I have had the same thing for the past week and feeling of "I need to get to the loo right now!".
    I mentioned to MW (I have no shame,LOL) and she said its body getting ready and emptying bowels in prep for labour,helping to avoid embarassing accidents in labour IYKWIM? xxx

    I just dont remember any of it with my last pregnancys...to be honest I never took as much notice as I do now....:dohh:

    Its just so strange that 'down there' has completely changed.
    My hoohaa is really aching this morning and had some period type pains yesterday and a few this morning so it feels as though hes sitting lower.

    One thing the mw said to me yesterday when she checked for babys head in my pelvis was that he was right down but towards my back? Is he in the right place? Or is he thinking of coming outa my bum?:rofl:

    When did you have lactulose and how much? I read and got told and take it myself lol.... that it tends to work a day or two after taking it? Could be that if not your clearout.

    Thinking with all those pains though lol that he certainly may be wanting to make an appearance ! :D

    Jacqui i have been exactly like you. Constipated all the way through then about a week ago i started waking up needing the loo :blush:. Yesterday and today i had the runs really bad in the morning. I have also got the pressure down there and period style cramps but i have been getting painful tightenings for over a week now also. I don't think i'm lucky enough to go early either although all my family say i can't hang on much longer. Do you think were gearing up for labour or are we reading to much into our bowel movements :rofl: i wish there was a psychic i could ring who could tell me exactly when things would start lol xx
