Hello everyone, I have a question for you. Being a first time mom, I do not know what to think of this. I am 24 weeks pregnant now. OKay.. starting Sunday, I had a lot of gas pain and nasty diarrhea, I had to go about 4 times. Since then, the diarrhea has stopped, but I have cramping that feels like bad menstrual cramps and my lower back is hurting too. Is this anything to worry about? Especially since I have a low lying placenta. I have not noticed any bleeding though. Anyone have any ideas on this? I do not want to go to the hospital again just to be told I have ligament pains again (last time I went I was told this) But according to the internet, some sites say these are signs of preterm labor and I am worried. Thanks in advance. Jane

Hi,
Never hesitate to see a doctor, but most likely it is just growing pains. There were many times I thought definitely something was wrong, I had bad cramps, etc., but it was either growing pains or dehydration. Make sure you drink plenty of water. I had complete placenta previa with my last pregnancy. One good thing is if you start having contractions you will start to bleed so you will know if its PTL or not. I didnt have heavy bleeding until week 31 1/2. I have good days and than all of a sudden I feel so horrible with cramps, etc. Its hard to believe at times that nothing is wrong and its just plain pregnancy but thats the way it is.
