I am 34wks pregnant. I went into early labor with my 1st at 28wks and then had her at 37wks. Here lately I have been having a lot of loose BM and a lot of cramping (they're braxton hicks, I believe, but they start high in my belly and move lower and kind of dull off, and then comes back sharp and moves to my back) I have discussed this with my doctor and they do not seem concerned? (naval hosp) SO I am taking matters into my own hands. I have been checking my cervix about 1 every 2 weeks. I got really sick all yester day and had those BH contractions all day and night. I was told to walk and they would go away, but it made the pain worse and I got diarrhea. I called my doc at midnight, they told me to take imodium and go to bed. So, I did. But, this morning I woke up and my belly and back both have dull aches. I just don't feel right. So, I tried checking my cervix, and I couldn't even get in past my 1st knuckle. It just feels really tight and swollen? I don't know if it is because my baby has dropped, which he has- doc told me at my last appt, and I noticed today my stomach is a lot lower and tight. Why is it so tight? Should I be worried or go in to L&D? I have a scheduled c-section for july 19th. Any advice would be wonderful.
