OK, this may be TMI......
So over the weekend I had something that I thought might be gas pain - it felt like bad gas/diharrea cramps, like I needed to go to the bathroom. It seemed like these lasted 5-10 minutes, and I got 3 bouts of these over about a 30-45 minute span.
It got pretty painful so (and here's the TMI part) - I went to the bathroom and had a bowel movement, and I felt a bit better, but the pains weren't totally gone. It seemed every time I ate or drank anything I'd get a mild version of those same gas/crampy pains.
And then today, if I couldn't feel baby moving and kicking, I'd swear I was PMS-ing! I've been irritable and short tempered. And add to that, all afternoon I've been binge-snacking like I usually do just before getting my period......had a bite of a cookie, and it's not what I wanted, tried some grapes but they weren't right, considered the left over pizza in the fridge, had a bite of an Xmas chocolate, and finally settled on crackers, cheese, and pickles.
Is this normal for the end of pregnancy? LOL I haven't had to deal with feeling all PMS-y for months, and I've really been enjoying it!!
Also, the stomach pains, is that normal gas/stocmach pain, or is there a chance those were a few 'real' contractions?
