Maybe he's further along then thought. That's how I was within weeks of having my son. I'd go to bed and have pains, so I'd get up. I had pretty well no sleep in the week before he was born. I'd be getting on the doctors back if you're having pain and his heart beat is week they shouldn't be playing it by ear. I'd seriously be talking to another doctor if he's not taking it seriously. If you''ve had no sleep and your in pain, on top of it his heart beat is week. It could be lack of space but he could also be under stress. With every contraction it put your baby under stress and heart rate drops. Seriously start stomping your feet. It may be nothing. But trust your instincts. It's your baby and your body if you're worried and you think something isn't right. Stomp your feet. Go to emergency room if you have to. Just don't back down.

Its possible you might be having braxstin hicks which is a form of contraction. Or it could be that you are just dealing with an intestinal bug. The big question would be is how long is the cramping lasting and are you having any bleeding. I just had my baby 3 weeks ago and I to experienced cramping and diarrhea at times.

you should probably go talk to your doctor and just take it easy. I always had a lot of these pains during pregnancy, for some people they are normal, for some they are not.
Good luck! And congratulations.

with my first child I to carried twins, but one aborted at 4 months when I fell down a flight of stairs. they kept me in hospital for 2 weeks and then on bed rest at home. when my son was born both water bags were still there.
So they had to break both water bags so the baby could drop to delivery. The docters need to check you out really good. If in fact you are leaking fluid it can cause a lot of problems. Ask for a second oppion.

i'm sorry but it could go on as long as you're pregnant. depending on the birth you may get a little after. May just have to take a load off a bit and put you're feet up for a while find somewhere that is comfortable for you

You never know. I felt movement pretty early but I'm not a very big person either. Mind you my hips will never be the same I had 2 in less than 12 months. Will never fit back into my old pants lol. You would be pretty busy with 2 if that's the case. People kept saying I was having twins with both of mine. I was huge and there's twins in the family. I knew I wasn't though. I don't mean to sound mean. But your docs don't sound very in touch with your pregnancy. There was no mystery where my pregnancy was concerned doctor kept me well informed. If I needed tests I knew what they were for. I needed another ultrasound with my daughter I was well informed why. Doctor was concerned about position of placenta. But it moved thankfully. I just feel a little concerned from what you told me about your friend and they don't seem to be keeping you well informed as to what's going on with your pregnancy. I guess it also comes down to how well equipped they are. Even though I had my children in a country hospital it's grown quite considerably and is better equipped now days.

Hopefully he'll wait for you until it's much safer for him to be born. I used to always worry. I like to drink milo. It's funny one day I hadn't had one all day it's normally what I have first thing. Sort of like people are with coffee I can't function without it lol. I hadn't felt my son move all day was worried went had a cold milo and he went crazy. I guess like me he just needed his milo. He loves it even now. On the other hand I couldn't eat cheese would make me violently ill. My son hates cheese. It's funny how things work out. Craved honey mustard. Normally hate mustard. My son loves it. He likes some strange things for a 2 year old. Try not to stress to much though. Try to relax. That can bring on labour apparently. Keep us updated how you go hey.

That's really sad. I can understand your concern that's for sure. I was pretty terrified with my 2. My doctor was actually my mums doctor when she had me and my brother. He was only holiday when my mum had my brother it was a pretty terrible birth he got stuck they used surgical scissors to get him out. She was pretty messed up. The relief doctor did what he had to do otherwise could have lost them both. So I had all sorts of fears. But he was pretty good with me. And he was there lol. And he's good with kids. But someone else I know had him and lost her baby. Can't say it was his fault though. There last baby was premie with a different doctor. What ever happens always trust your instincts and if you're not satisfied with a doctor always ask a second opinion. I you get any fluid or bleeding or pains become worse or more regular. They're definate signs your baby is on it's way. There's a good chance baby is just putting pressure on you hence the diareah and mentrual like pain. I did have a lot of discomfort with my too. Particularly well the partner wanted some attention lol

Can't say what that is. I'd certainly be asking questions from doctors and staff. Talk to your doctor tell him everything. Every little niggle and ask questions.

Yes if you have fluid that could be waters breaking. Sorry I haven't been on in awhile you could have already had the baby. I hope everything has gone well for if that's the case. Goodluck

You are leaking clear fluid? That means your water broke. Call your doc and get to the hospital. Good luck.

in my opinion, I had massive diarhea and cramps the entire pg with both my kids. Exactly what your describing is what I went through the entire time. Id just get to a bathroom, do my deed, and see what happens. Most likely the pain will stop after you take a hot bath and relax and crap (litterally)
