Post subject: Is this normal
Hi I'm 36 wks and ftm I've been having some problems for the last 5 weeks
I've got really bad abdominal cramps, back ache, tightening of stomach, diarrhea, feel
Like I've been winded, lots of discharge (sorry) less then 3 hours sleep a night
And all this for 5 weeks none stop. I was sent to maternity unit and doc just looked at
Me and said I was constipated gave me laxatives and sent me home!!
I've explained all this to midwife and even had spotting and well she hasn't given me answers
No showed any form of interest, my pelvis hurts too and it feels like I've a bowling ball down
There and she says the baby is free and I get sharp shooting pains in my vagina that can last 2
Minutes. Hope someone can help I'm at wits ends now Sad

I know tell me about it, I've been explaining all these symptoms to midwife and she says nothing ive had two traces at 32 weeks and reached 29 on toco and was sent home, I just don't understand it and that she thinks the baby is free yet there's clearly something down there (I'm waddling) x

Is this your first? What do the cramps feel like, is it like period pains or does it feel like diahrreoa/bad tummy cramps? It could be what they've said, but if your spotting and passing lots of discharge that could be your plug, was that recent? My contractions felt like really bad period pains. You could ask to see someone else and say your not happy with the way it's not being taken seriously x

i know this may sound a bit funny but could u have IBS or SPD (both very uncomfortable)

i suffer from SPD and it an be very bad like period pain's (or even thinking that ur starting labour (if the pelvis is sore then that does suggest SPD but does not explain the spotting

I've got really bad abdominal cramps, back ache, tightening of stomach,(from ure first post)this is the same as what i get hun (hope u are ok and everything tho) hugs to u
