WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MY BODY?!

I'm 35 weeks. I had Braxton hicks all day and all night. nighttime also came with nausea. I also had some pretty painful random cramps going across my lower belly. For about a week now I've also have been having bowel cramping like when you get before diarrhea but when I go to the restroom nothing. My hips have so much pressure pain it hurts to get up and walk. I'm miserable anyone else experiencing this? Last appt. Doctor said I was "really getting soft."

    Your body is nearing the end of pregnancy and prepping for delivery.  Sorry but you feel like crap the last few weeks before labor.  Sounds normal, to me.  As always if there are major concerns, contact your doctor.

  • With my first I just felt "off" two days before. I couldn't really explain it. Woke up the next day with diarrhea and then contractions the next morning. With my second I woke up 5 days before she was born and felt extremely nauseous and was sure laboor would start soon. Then I had such bad Braxton Hicks that I thought I had a uti. The morning I went into labor I had no indication other then the BH. Then I suddenly realized they were coming regularly.  When I got to the birth center about an hour later I was already 100% effaced and 7 cm. That being said, every labor is different! Sometimes you feel nasty for quite awhile, and sometimes you basically have no warning!
