Could feeling shi!t! be a sign of preterm labor ?

I don’t know what is going on with me. This post’s title is sort of sarcastic, but at the same time it isn’t. I do wonder sometimes if feeling this shi!t! could be a sign of early labor.

The worst part is that I don’t even know how to explain what I am feeling. It is physical and emotional. It almost feel like I am sick. I am so tired, so down. I haven’t been able to sleep well. I can’t find a comfortable position and when I do get to sleep, it is very shallow. I can’t fall deep asleep and therefore anything wakes me up. My stomach feels funny, almost like a stomach flu feeling as if I am going to throw up or have diarrhea, but I never do. It feels like the food is taking forever to digest. Then I get these really mild cramps, but this really weird pain in my back like its splitting in half. I feel  like pushing, I dont know how to explain. I also feel so claustrophobic in my own body like there is no room for me in here anymore. It feels like my skin is this really tight outfit I need to break free from.

Oh, Gosh. I feel awful. And when I do get those lower backaches even tho they are not strong, I do not know why, I feel like crying. It is like I need to push real bad, not the baby out, but some how squeeze my back.

Baby is kicking lots so I guess she hasnt dropped yet and therefore I must not be close to labor. But still, what is this??

I am sorry about the depressing post, but I needed to let it out !!

  1. This has happened to me when I am stressing and emotional. I think this could lead to preterm labor. I would say try some relaxation techniques. For the back pain try a warm bath and have your partner give you a back rub. Try to lay down some more. This is what helps me.

    • Thank you for the advice. I should really watch my stress level so I dont cause any harm to me or baby. This whole experience is so overwhelming sometimes and gosh, these hormones, are so mean ! haha

      • It is very overwhelming! This is no small thing you are doing. It is a selfless thing all for your baby:) Yes hormones suck. I was having a very bad week last week. I was grouchy, depressed, and I had several meltdowns. This week I feel so happy. It’s a crazy rollercoster of emotions when you are pregnant. Sometimes you have good days and bad days. Just try to relax as much as you can. Sweets and baby movements always get me out of a funk.
