My tummy felt so sick yesterday! I woke up to some really painful cramps and it pretty much lasted all day. I could even feel them in my back and legs. They felt different than any contractions I felt before, but I was able to time 3 which were 15 min. apart. They became so inconsistent that I stopped timing them. Then I had diarrhea all day! I remember that I felt this way before my water broke with DS so I told DH to be on baby watch. I thought for sure either yesterday or today would be it. Well today, I feel normal other than some pressure in my back and lower abdomen, but nothing I can't tolerate. I just know it's going to happen on a day that I'm feeling perfectly fine and don't even expect it...like today. LOL!
Oh and after being lazy all day Saturday, I got a sudden burst of energy and cleaned the whole house! I'm thinking that it has to be this week for sure. This waiting game is pure torture!!
A few days before I went into labor with DS, I had super inconsistent contrax (7-25mins apart), then the night before I went into the hospital I had diarrhea, and was throwing up from the pain of the contrax. It could definitely be coming real soon! Of course everyone is different, but I say its most definitely getting close!!!
lol sounds like what I've been having for a week now hopefully it's doing SOMETHING.
Try not to look into things too much. You'll make yourself crazy!! The bottom line is, with symptoms like that, it could be in the next day or two... or you could still have a couple weeks. Yes, I'd say those are symptoms that your body is gearing up, but definitely no definite signs yet. Hang in there! I know this isn't what you want to hear, but I typically have looser bowls and contractions on and off for a month before I finally go into labor!
I am making myself nuts with every little pain, lol. like i told you last night, the sharp vaginal pain knocked me off my feet, along with her head grinding my pelvic bone, and extreme preassure, but im only 33 weeks! i could have another 7+ weeks of this!
i cant complain though, i have super amounts of energy which is awesmoe.

I really never thought I'd be like this thinking every little thing is a sign of labor. I'm an impatient person anyways and I think it's just driving me crazy now. My mom kind of plays into it too. Every little thing I'm feeling, means labor will start soon. If it was up to her, I would have had the baby 2 weeks ago when my stomach issues started. It really could have just been the hot wings I ate the night before that made it worse since I'm feeling just fine now. I'm just going to chill out and let nature take its course. I just can't wait to meet this little girl and I'm so looking forward to us ladies having our babies soon, full term of course. Come on babies!
The waiting game SUCKS, especially when things seem like they may or may not be happening.
I guess that my having NO signs of labor with DD was a blessing in disguise lol
