Water From Back Passage

we have had a rather extreme close up of dd bowl movement...since she is mixed feeding her poo is a little harder and looks a little like cottage cheese...so what it seems is that the poo and water havent mixed together to form the runnier stool babies normally get...they seem to be coming out as solids and water components.... pretty worried that there is some digestion problem and will try to speak to somebody today.... any ideas would be gratefully received

Water From Back Passage

thanks bells, can always count on you.... dont think so - thats why we are concerned. the dr said that she has gone from 307 to 290 in weight and thats not concerning him and as long as she is feeing they dont think i should worry and stop watching her toilet habits... not sure what to think about it all....still concerned ...

Water From Back Passage

DD is 5 days old now and twice whilst changing her nappy we have noticed that when she poos sometimes she seems to be passing clear water from her back passage - we notice a sqirt of water before or after or along with the poo..... she is urinating from the right place....is this normal? the gp says she hasnt heard of that before and as long as she isnt losing too much weight not to worry....she is being breast and bottle fed... anyone have some experience of this...is it normal?

No Sickness but serious Heartburn!

i am towards the end of my pregnancy and i must say burping up acid hasnt got any more delightful over time....found the best thing is a few spoons of natural yoghurt or a shot of actimel - dont let your tummy get empty as thats when it seems to strike hardest.... good luck!

Head down and quiet?

Head down and quiet?

i am 37 weeks and the head is down....i think its been like that for about 2 weeks now....but i know there isnt enough room in there so movment can decrease. keep checking that there is some movement - also i think that by now you get used to certain movement and dont feel them unless you concentrate..hope you are ok

Embarrasing question.

i can smell something there too when i sit crossed legged....have even asked dh if he can smell anything...i think maybe its normal and we are just hyper sensitive to it....

lots of movment at 37 weeks.....

just wondering if this is normal... normally arent movements meant to decrease and you are meant to feel them less? its like the baby is swimming inside me...can feel a lot of action at the top and right at the bottom of my bump....is this a sign the baby is ready or distress?
