    Hello,

    I have been googling away but cant seem to find any answers...

    Im 37 weeks pregnant with my first, on thursday i started getting tummy pains and had to go to loo quite a bit, this then turned in to diarrehoea and the pain was excruitiating - like cramping in my tummy, still the same on friday but the pain felt worse so bad i was crying through it and my mum took me to the midwife to check but they just sent me home and told me i had a bug and to drink water. I felt fine other than the tummy ache, this lasted until about 10pm last night then it stopped i havent had tummy pains like that i just have a back ache which doesnt seem to be going away.

    I know i havent eaten anything dodgy, i dont know whether my body is preparing me for labour? im just really scared now as i have never felt tummy pain like that and i dont think im going to be able to cope when i do go in to labour!!

    Thank u in advance xx

    Welcome to the forum :)
    It could well be your body preparing as I have had a lot of cramps and clearouts etc
    Also make sure you drink enough water because that can make the pain a lot worse.
    If you are feeling that the pains are very uncomfy or unbearable ring your MW and explain it through with her .
    It may be like mine,painful BH contractions (((hugs)))

    Might be the start of things for you

    But Braxton hicks contractions are made a million times worse by being dehydrated, which you maybe if youve had an upset stomach id say drink as much as you pyhsically can hun and it may make it better

    i agree with the girls, make sure you keep hydrated and monitor the painns, if they get worse, call midwife !,
