I'm almost 34 weeks pregnant with my 5th kid. I have been getting back pain, head aches and loose stools. Are these signs of labor coming soon?

Maybe: Loose stools can cause contractions. The headache isn't likely related to labor. It could just be a headache, unless you have an elevated blood pressure. If the back pain is constant, its less likely labor. If every few minutes lasting 30-60 seconds its more likely contractions. The only way to know for sure is call your OB and see if they want you to get on a fetal monitor. ...Read more

30 weeks pregnant with 2nd baby. Loose stools for 2 weeks and feel like I need to go all the time. Also have irritable uterus should I be concerned?

Taking care w/ baby: Given that you have a baby-on-board, I would be proactive about getting you treated. You should go to the doc and get a diagnosis for the diarrheal illness. With some history, exam and lab tests, there should be some 'road map' to follow. Pregnancy causes your immune system to weaken, and you don't want things to get out of hand. I hope you can get seen TODAY. Take care. ...Read more

Head low: I see that you already have 2 children. The more pregnancies you have, the lower the baby sits in the pelvis. That is why you have more pressure. I'm not sure about the loose stools, but taking some OTC Imodium (loperamide) would be ok. Stay well hydrated! ...Read more

Maybe not pregnant: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
