    well as the title says!

    Most BH have been making me run to the loo! It's such a nice relief after having constipation and piles for months!

    Is it because of BH or have I just been eating some things that pass through faster and smoother haha...

    just me?

    Funny you should post this. I've spent most of my life bring constipated but the later I get in Pg the more on going to the loo regularly. I keep getting bad IBS cramps over the last week or so which make me run to the loo. Not had any ibs cramps for months so maybe they are BH? Not IBS? How to tell the difference lol

    I had bad IBS before getting pregnant and sometimes didn't go for days. Pregnancy has cured me! Sometimes I go 4/5 times a day! (I probably shouldn't get excited about that.) xx

    it says in my pregnancy book that its a late pregnancy symptom, its our bodies cleaning themselves out for labour, some people may feel sick or be sick aswel it says xx

    Yeah I get tummy pains before I have to poop, never had that before. Not sure if it is BH, could be, maybe your bowel being full sets them off? :eh:

    I'm really shy with things like that. Bf doesn't care and would do anything in front of me and thinks I should feel just as comfortable. He said as soon as I fall asleep I trump loads! Damn!

    Hmmmm I get this too, well more like a butterfly/cramp feeling in my stomach then I have to rush to the loo and have the runs! Its been like this for weeks now and also being sick. I wonder if that feeling is Braxton hicks?! Xx

    I get period cramps which make me want to go to the loo. Have also started being sick again...I am hoping that it is a sign that labour is on its way. Fingers crossed.
