I have been running to the bathroom alot these last few days Peeing & pooping sorry tmi. Well today a few mins ago i went pee & felt like i had to go poop but when i pushed alot of gas came out and i was straining alittle to go and really didnt do much. But now i feel like i have to go again and im REALLY gasey. And im having some cramping. I read online you can rupture your water is this true?? Has anyone heared this?? thanks Ladies please No Bashing

Yeh don't don't straight if you can help it. I don't know about you, but myself and a lot of people I know get the runs from drinking apple juice, so try a glass or two of that and see if that loosens ya up a bit! You are super pregnant, the baby is putting a lot of pressure on your bladder and bowel so it can be a little harder to get it out when you want to and it will probably feel weird for awhile!
