Constipation feeling like menstrual cramps???


I went to the ER a week ago for what I thought were Braxton Hicks that wouldn't stop. Well they hooked me up and everything and nothing showed on the monitor meaning they weren't contractions. She said maybe it was constipation. I guess I haven't gone in about a week lol anyone else dealing with this? I guess I could be having Braxton Hicks and be constipated therefore making them feel more severe. Because I'm not bleeding and everything is fine. Ugh. It's no fun. It feels like my period and I DO NOT like it, it scares me :( I'm 21 weeks. Anyone going through this?
