as you are at 30 wks gestation ,sometimes u get these false pains ..and moreover u said u had loose motions too.. i suggest u better to take medication for pain abdomen and loose stools and take only plain diet with lot of liquids and if pain subsides thats ok..or else u need to get examined by gynaecologist to exclude any premature labour pains..just look for other symptoms like white discharge or any vaginal spotting too and if u have them u need to consult doc or else no problem..
take care ..all the best..

OBGYN Dr. Shanti Vennam's  Response
As per your symptoms, you could be having either bowel irritability or some excess prostaglandin release. You should also exclude infection of the bowel. I advice you to consult your doctor and get treated as such diarrhea may lead to preterm labor; moreover you should not be getting cramps at this stage of pregnancy. You may need medication to control the frequency of stools and also the cramps. The burning sensation is probably due to sensitivity of the nerves that happens in pregnancy. Take care.
