Pregnant with loose stools, pain in the back, pressure in the pelvic area. Normal?

Hi, I am 36 weeks and 4 days pregnant, for the past two days my bowel movements have been very loose and that is not normal for me. I don t have a fever and I feel lots of movement from the baby. I also have a little pain in my back every so often and also pressure near my pelvic area sometimes. Is this something I should be worried about or is it normal?

hi,loose stools in pregnancy could be due to various causes,a simple bowel irritation or due to intestinal infection.consult your doctor for it. excessive baby movements are normal unless there is no increase in liquor. back pain and pelvic pressure occur due to head going down into the pelvis.observe for uterine contractions.if they are coming 2-4 times in half hr immediately consult ur doctor since u may be in labour as u are almost reaching term.
