Stomach cramps and...

Diarrhea.
Will it ever end?
I'm 28w4d and almost every day for the last month, I'm overcome, at some point or another, by painful stomach cramps that have me running to the bathroom like my hair is on fire. I'm having twins (so measuring much further along), so I'm sure the extra size pushing on my intestines isn't helping things, but WOW.

Last week it got so bad that I went to L&D, fearing I was in preterm labor.

I feel like I'm chained to the house! It's so yucky!

Anyone else? Someone? Please tell me I'm not alone!!

Re: Stomach cramps and...

I had bad diarrhea for about a solid month too. The Dr. said it was just the way the hormones decided to mess with me that month. It went away on it's own, and was replaced by debilitating headaches yay.

I've had diarrhea AND headaches for about a week now! Don't tell me it's going to last a month!

Me too! Not every day, but a few days this week. And I can totally see why you would be afraid it was preterm labor-- some of my cramps were horrible when I was on the toilet. Pregnancy is super glamorous.
