Sorry if this is TMI at times but I'm 37weeks+4 and have had a severe stomach upset for the last 12 hours. Any liquid I take in, or food (sticking to plain stuff because I am still hungry), just goes straight through me. I've actually been feeling unwell for longer. In the middle of last night I was woken several times with stomach cramps, feeling sick, needing the loo but every time I went nothing happened. Things didn't start moving until 9:00am today.
I have had some backache and stomach cramping too but my biggest issue is the diarrhoea and I'm worried I'm not keeping anything in. Baby seems a bit quieter than normal but not overly so & I understand babies slow down the bigger they get anyway.
At what point should I talk to a medical professional and who should I call? GP or midwife or the unit at the hospital?
Sorry your no feeling well clicked on this as in my 3rd pg i picked up a bug at 36 weeks and ended up in hospital. The dr there said the bowels and womb are pretty close and my contractions had been caused by bowel irritating womb.
However your description sounds more like the beginning of labour so i would suggest calling mw or labour ward for advice.
Fwiw everything was fine after my hospital.admission. They rehydrated me my discomfort stopped and dd1 was born 4 weeks later.
