This week...

For this entire week now, I've been having cramping, loose stools (sorry TMI!) and non-stop BH (mostly just the tightening thing). Just feel pretty darn uncomfortable most of the day! And like I have to hold my belly up when I walk around! I wonder if it means stuff is happening down there????

Also, I wanted to ask... I get this weird pop or popping sounds often in my stomach, which is squished up right below my boobs. Anyone else get that or am I a weirdo?

Woah! Doesn't all that mean you're about ready to have a kid any minute now?

You are totally a weirdo. Wink just kidding - never heard of that before. Gas bubbles maybe?

I get the popping sound. Mine sounds like some sort of air bubbles or something. And all of those symptoms are signs of impending labor....lol

That's what I was thinking/freaking out about Sheila! Wishing I would have been checked if I had known this was going to go on all week.

Haha Jenn. Yes, I know I'm a weirdo, but no, it's not like gas bubbles. It feels like some organ all smooshed up under my boobs is adjusting or moving and it pops when it does it. You can actually hear them on the outside?!

I don't really "feel" the popping sound. I just hear it.

Yea, they are different than gas for sure! Besides, those are much much lower in the belly than these new popping sounds.

And !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stuff definitely could be happening down there! I had a few light contractions here and there with some pressure for the past week, and I'm dilated 3CM already! As far as the popping... I have no idea what that is lol!

I think if I thought my organs were popping I'd go in to make sure they were all still ok - lol. That's very interesting!

Oh and I have heard weird sounds a couple of times, too. I figured it was my like someone moving off of my stomach or something.

I mentioned it on Tuesday at my appt. and she offered to check, but I figured they would go away and I probably wasn't much if anything. Do you think I should call?

That's such a funny conversation to have with a doctor.

Dr: "So how are you feeling?"
You: "Well doc I think my organs are popping."

What could they really check though? I know with me there is no pain, tenderness, or anything associated with it. I just get this noise every once in awhile. Maybe since everything is smooshed up there its organs rubbing together?

I get the popping thing too. It kind of sounds & feels like when you crack a knuckle or something, although much quieter. I have no idea what it is.

When is your next appt? How is your cramping?

If I didn't have weird noises, too, I'd totally think we were all just making this stuff up and being all, "Yeah, yeah, me, too!" Blum 3

Haha Sheila! You have such an awesome sense of humor. Smile

My next appt. isn't until Weds. Still cramping a lot, like period cramps, and if I stand up or walk for any period of time, I feel so awful! Cramping gets worse, get back pain and I feel like the baby is just going to fall out! BLAH!

I get that popping thing too. It scares me a little b/c I've heard people describe that pop sound feeling of their water breaking. But I haven't had any signs of broken water.

You are getting so close it doesn't surprise me you have tons of BH.
