So, I know this is probably a bit tmi, but I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem. I finally realized why I had been cramping so much last week - it was not my uterus but my BOWELS! I had been having really loose stools during those mornings, and one incident so bad that I thought I was going to throw up at the same time! It always happens in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning. I have to continuously run to the bathroom for about a half hour for each, um, session. Eventually I empty out and it is over until the next day.
I did NOT have this problem with either of the other pregnancies and I know each one is different but it is so strange. I noticed if I keep a mild diet it does not happen but that is hard when you are pg and are craving things that are notoriously bad for your belly (greasy fast food, beans, fruit, etc).
It took awhile to realize that the cramping is my bowels and not the baby b/c it is in the same area. But I am relieved that it has nothing to do with my uterus! Does anyone else have this unpleasent symptom or am I all alone in this nasty-ness?? :eek:
Am I alone here?
