Signs of Labor at 37 Weeks Pregnant
What are the signs of labor at 37 weeks pregnanté The back pains that don't go away. I've heard of women thinking they had reallybad back spasms and found out they were really in labor. The hard part is that due to the heavy loadyou are carrying in front, you tend to get bad back pains and are at risk of strainingthings. So how can I tell the difference between laborand mere back painsé First, labor pains will center in the lowerback, so back pains in the upper back are
just back pains. Albeit bad. Second, labor pains will include pressurein the pelvis, stomach pains and other pains in addition to the lower back pains. So if I have back pains and stomach pains,I'm in labor. You can have something else causing it, suchas stomach pain and pressure from very bad constipation. I know what constipation causes, and if itclears up when I have a high fiber meal, then
it isn't labor. If you are in early labor, the muscle contractionsof the uterus can cause diarrhea. Then I need to know how to tell the differencebetween a stomach bug and a baby about to come out. A stomach bug will cause severe diarrhea thatwon't stop after a few hours, while when you're in labor, the diarrhea stops afteran hour or two while the contractions get worse. So if the muscle pains continue though thedigestive symptoms stop, I'm in laboré
That's the most likely answer, yes. And if you have the muscle contractions inthe back but have some nausea and throw up a few times, but the muscle pains continueafter you stop throwing up, it is likely labor. I didn't think labor symptoms could be mistakenfor so many other things. If you've had a urinary tract infectionlately I'm a pregnant woman in my third trimester. That's almost expected. If the urinary tract infection worsens andturns into a bladder infection, you could
feel constant bladder pressure in the pelvisand pain as the bladder tenses against the infection. I'd also still have that burning feelingwhen peeing and maybe even blood in the urine. If you have bleeding from the vaginal area,with or without pressure or pain, you need to go to the in case it is laboror something else. What else could it beé A tissue tear that needs to be addressed. Glad to know we've already preprogrammedthe 's address into the navigation
system. If your water breaks, that's a sure signyou need to get to the . I've heard of someone's water breakingwhen they weren't in labor. Because the amniotic sack protects the baby,if that breaks, you want to get the baby out anyway. I'm due anyway, thereabouts. One sign of early labor is that the baby feelslike the baby is going to fall out. I already feel so top heavy I feel like I'mgoing to tip over.
Im 35 Weeks Pregnant and Have Diarrhea
I'm 35 weeks pregnant and have diarrhea! I think you overdid the fiber to correct forthe constipation. It isn't like I had two bowls of oatmealto fix constipation and it seems like something is wrong when my body is finally running right. I hope you aren't eating for two and wonderingwhy you poop for two. I was only peeing for two until recently. If you were much earlier in the pregnancy,I'd say the poop generation was due to shifting to a really healthy diet versus your normalone.
No, that's not it. When you are pregnant, your body is more proneto various infections. I have had to deal with urinary tract infectionsand yeast infections several times. You are also more prone to various food borneillnesses. Oh, all that stuff morning sickness was supposedto protect me against. If you have diarrhea, you could have pickedup a food borne illness. However, because you are pregnant, you needto drink twice as many fluids to stay hydrated. Now I'll never leave the bathroom.
If you are trying to stay hydrated, the stomachbug may pass. However, if you've been dealing with thisfor several days, you want medical attention in case it is a severe case or just threatensyour health due to dehydration. I know dehydration can cause kidney stonesin the long term. In the short term, bad dehydration can triggerlabor. As if I need something else on top of this. If you are having bad back pains plus diarrhea,it could be a sign of early labor. Or the back pains are due to the muscle contractionsas my bowels purge themselves.
Early labor involves back pains and stomachcramps as the uterus starts flexing to push the baby out. Yes, and I can see how that gets mistakenfor indigestion, but this is superpooping. The muscle contractions also put pressureon the bowels and lead to a lot of pooping too, though it will stop as the contractionsworsen. I know this will sound weird, but it makesme want to be in labor. The difference between the two is that thepains will stay as bad or get worse while an infection means the pain remains similarbut the pooping is as bad or worse.
So if the pooping stays as bad, go to the for that, and if the pooping stops but the pain gets worse, go to our chosenmaternity . It certainly isn't going to be because thehormones that cause digestive muscles to relax along with tendons and muscles when you'repregnant suddenly reverse. I've heard that pregnancy can cause newfood sensitivities. When you are in the first trimester, you'relikely to develop morning sickness. Far fewer people develop food sensitivitieslike food allergies. And I thought super oily skin was bad.
I'm assuming you haven't started doublingup on the pregnancy vitamins because you are in the third trimester, and now the iron inthe vitamins is aggravating your digestive tract. No, just the standard dose. Then if it keeps up, you need to talk to the, no matter what the cause.
