As stated above, for the last 3 days I have had extremely sharp and painful cramps up the sides and top of my belly. Aswell as that pain, I have a lower back ache that spreads down my thighs and over my hips. I have had diarrheah 4 times over the last 3 days..in a pretty full on fashion (TMI I know ) Despite this, I havnt totally lost my appetite like you would expect but I do have my moments of feeling like I am going to vomit. I have a few contractions every now and then..but they don't follow the "wave" pattern or have any pattern at all. I have been using heat packs and showers to help-panadol does NOTHING.
I dont think it is a bug as my DS and DP have been with my every minute of the last 3 days-we have eaten the same foods etc and they are perfectly fine.
Bub is moving like crazy and also causing alot of pain/pressure down low (on top of the rest of the pain!)
All in all, I didn't have any drugs for my 20hr labour with my DS but this pain is making me scream DRUGGGSSSS already!!
Can anyone relate?? Does this sound like pre-labour stuff or..??
TIA ladies xx

38 weeks-Severe cramping + Diarrhea??

I would be putting my hospital bag in the car. It sounds like me the 2 days before I went into full labour with DD.
No appetite, bowels were all over the place, stabbing pains and a constant droning back ache.
Try panadiene or if you can, get to a GP and get a script for panadiene forte. So much better than panadol even just regular panadiene. That tiny bit of codiene does wonders.
Good luck hun!

In my hospital book it states any diarrhoea for longer than 24 hours you should go to hospital for a check up

Thankyou Tasha! Its hard with pregnancy..never know if it is BECAUSE of pregnancy or completely seperate. I have never had anything like it hence my asking on here
Angel-Thanks for the advice! The only reason I havnt sought medical attention is because I have only actually had the runs 4 times over 72 hrs. The cramping is consistent but not actually needing to go..so I didn't have any dehydratioin worries etc. But your right, if it keeps up Ill have to go. Its been horrible!
I did just have another sleep (since lasts night was a nightmare) and the pain for the first time in days seems to have eased off...maybe the calm before the storm

I do always get loose bowels for a few days before going into labour. Hope this is it for you (if you want it to be it, that is!)
