37 weeks and BH's

so im 37 weeks today. what this mean to DH?? this means that he comes to pick me up from work and informs me that im full term and that he intends to hit every single pot hole on his way home. i give him the "eye". THEN he says "what, i am ready for a break from work". I gave him the bigger "eye" LOL THEN he says, ok im ready for a break from work and to meet my daughter...MEN!! LOL he was just kidding around by the way, though he did tease me with the pot holes on the way home. So the BH's started up this evening while finishing up the nursery. they were about 10ish minutes apart, no pain, just uncomfy, so i took a seat and let him finish it up. i told him i was having contractions and he got all excited thinking they were the real thing. HAHAHA Well, he deserved it!! Biggrin after a hot shower they have relaxed a little bit thankfully. with that said, it seems the last few weeks my bathroom habits have changed a bit. i am going to the bathroom about 4-6 times a day on average. they arent loose, its not constipation either. just often! it annoying. is this normal?? it doesnt seem as though im taking in as much as im putting out...and there goes another BH! Well off to drink water and relax for the night. Have a good evening ladies!

That is cute. My DH did the same thing when I mentioned the BH...got all excited. I told him it could still be weeks and to calm down. He said that "it means something is happening". Really, the growing belly has not been a clue thus far?

Goofy men.

The looser more frequent stools are normal I think. I've been having the same thing. Just your body clearing everything out for delivery.

Laura - i'm right there with you. I had like 6 the other day. Not loose. I asked the dr about it yesterday and he said it was normal. He said it's your body's way of cleaning and preparing.

Would have been nice to know earlier, I could have bought stock in charmin.

between Charmin and Tums...they make a killing off of pregnant woman world wide! i was under the impression that loose ones were normal right before labor, not the last 6 WEEKS! :eek:

i probably shouldnt complain, it is WAY better than being all blocked up!

I am having the more frequent trips to the restroom and I agree with the Charmin stock idea. My other frequent use has been Kleenex, although, I prefer Puffs (they are softer for a frequent use).
