Painful Bowels??

I don't know how to start this topic off, and I guess it's kind of gross, but guess it's a part of pregnancy. I'm usually pretty regular, but lately I've not been going every day like I normally do. Just a little while ago I was getting the WORST cramps and 'gurgling' in the bowel area so I went to the bathroom. I was there for 10 minutes with OUCH cramps before I actually went. And I swear I lost 10 pounds in the process. Does anyone else get this? I thought I was in labor!! Of course, I'm only 8 weeks, but it's my third and I know what labor feels like. That was a horrible experience and I never want to do that again.

Just part of the normal preggo process. The hormone relaxin slows down everything in your system, particularly your entire digestive process... so you'll have some problems in that dept.
