That means they’re Braxton Hicks-not real labor contractions. Make sure you stay hydrated, since dehydration could put you into early labor. Stretch marks. Sorry, but new stretchies might appear on your 37 weeks pregnant belly and each week from here on out. Keep that body oil on hand and lather up when you can.
If diarrhea during your pregnancy is caused by bacteria or parasites, you may need antibiotics. If a virus is causing your diarrhea, antibiotics will not help. To determine the cause, you will need to speak with your health care provider. If you are experiencing diarrhea during your third trimester, it does not mean your baby is coming right now, so you should not be alarmed.

Nausea occurs in 91 percent of pregnant women in the first trimester, usually in the first 6 to 8 weeks, and can often be accompanied by vomiting. In mild cases, it is referred to as morning sickness. However, it can become severe and require treatment to manage. After a medically- or surgically-induced miscarriage, cramps and bleeding or spotting may continue for up to two weeks, and a person should avoid sexual activity until their next menstrual period at around 4-6 weeks after the miscarriage completes, in order to reduce the risk of infection.

Try bland food like toast, crackers, rice and pasta. Avoid anything sweet, hot, spicy or which you feel triggers your sickness. Ensure you sip water to remain hydrated.

I was about 3 or 4 weeks pregnant with her when it happened. The only difference is that I had it to the point where I couldn’t even hold it to make it to the bathroom in time. I know it can be annoying but my guess is that its just another form of morning sickness and your body adjusting to the pregnancy hormone and your body adjusting to the pregnancy itself.
