So last night after dinner. I am sitting on the couch and I start getting this pain..in waves across my belly. like cramps almost...and I said to DH I was a little worried..I cannot remember what contractions and labor felt like even though I was in labor for 20 hours last time..I completely forget... so the pains are getting worse and I start to get really worried and I am trying to explain to DH what it feels like and suddenly it feels like its going to get even worse I mean I can literally feel the pain building...and he says...would you like to go to the ER ? and before I can answer. I farted. and the pain went away.... somy preterm labor was gas... apparently I am a dork. I think DH would have died laughing if I hadn't been so worked up near tears before hand. I feel like a butthead....thank goodness I can laugh at myself or I would have cried for sure!

Hee, hee...glad it was nothing, uh, serious!

If it makes you feel any better, I was at the ER for 5 hours last night because I was afraid I was leaking amniotic fluid and it turns out that I had just wet myself!

Fellow Farter Here!

I've been getting lots of those intense gas pains lately, especially after I eat.
I attribute it to all of my intestines getting shoved around out of their normal routes...
I have found that being on all fours on the bed with my forearms down/head on arms (so that my front is lower than my butt) helps the pain subside and er....the gas passes quite efficiently that way

maybe we need a "tmi thread" like the December due date club has, but yes, I, too, am a dork with gas! Last night, in fact (it must be the time for it, with all our intestines being squished down and all around), I had such severe pains in my stomach that I was getting ready to wake up DH and talk about going to the doctor. I hesitated because he works at 3:00 a.m. and I really didn't want to wake him if it was nothing. So I was moving around, trying to find a position where I could feel better, and it all came out in a huge belch, which woke him anyway!
Don't worry, lots of it comes out the other end, too! This pregnancy thing is so undignified!

Uh, no wetting myself or severe fart contractions here (at least not yet), but I have been getting "poop cramps". Anybody else know what I'm talking about? Kinda like there's just a little something working it's way through that hits a nerve or something and it causes a sort of butt/lower abdomin pain. They are bad enough when you're not pg, but the couple I've had recently were enough to have me in tears.

Thanks, that made my day!

I did the whole "I think I'm leaking fluid, but am really leaking pee" last time I was preggo.
Luckily it was during office hours though so I was spared a trip to the ER. My midwife was super nice about it too. Said she sees at least 1 person a month for that very thing.

My friend was trying to induce labor a couple months ago through natural methods. She got all excited thinking her water broke. Nope. The doctor pulled her aside "Honey, it isn't amniotic fluid. It's ejaculate." "But I haven't had sex!" "It's yours."
She experienced female ejaculation for the first time, and went to the hospital!
