So I posted about how I has been having pain tenderness and contractions.
I talked to mw again and based on my symptoms it looks like it could be appendicitis or a bowl obstruction.
(I have been constipated since I got pregnant and can count the times I have had bms... Its bad.
So I am to eat prunes take a supplement etc.and if my symptoms don't improve or get worse I need to head to the hospital for an ultrasound.. If its appendicitis that's immediate surgery... Bowl obstruction probably a colonic. I've never thought I would say this but I hope its the obstruction cause I do not want to have abdominal surgery while pregnant!!!
I will update the second I know anything.. Please pray!

Update
I did a 5k this morning and the whole time had stabbing pain. So midwife sent me to the E.R. I am here now
They are doing blood work to rule out appendicitis. Midwife is convinced its a fecal impaction cause the sure fire things (glycerin suppository) among other things that make you go did nothing And its bad.. I will update when I know more

Praying it's just an obstruction/constipation!!!

DD1 has had constipation issues since birth and it can get BAD, and really painful for her. I have been pretty lucky in that area so far this pregnancy but a few days ago I was a little backed up and I was having some pretty bad cramps/pressure and intense braxton hicks from it, it was not fun!! I hope that is all it is for you!!

Praying these home remedies will do the trick. Can you try some coffee too, that usually helps me.

I hope this clears up soon without the need for surgery. My mom had her gallbladder removed while pregnant with me, so they can do things like that and everything still be okay, but obviously you want to avoid that and I don't blame you! Hope you are feeling better soon.

I'm guessing it's obstruction/constipation because I know how horrible that feels. I had horrible cramping from constipation in beginning of this pregnancy. I also know what it's like when your appendix goes bad and its an uncontrollable pain. I could sit still and went to hospital asap and I had it removed.

Fingers crossed for no surgery.
