Thanks for writing to us.
Having diarrhea and intermittent lower abdominal pain are suggestive of a labor near by. The pain in hands and feet are not likely to be related to delivery. For headache, take plenty of fluids and get your blood pressure checked.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
