Diarrhea a sign of labor coming??

Sorry if this is TMI...

For the past two days I have felt fine, but have had a bit of diarrhea.  Prior to this, I have been closer to constipation than anything else.

I've heard this may be a sign that labor is coming soon?  Anyone had this be a sign?  If so, when did the symptoms start and how soon after did you deliver?

Yes, it could be a sign of labor starting. I'm not sure how long though. Are you having any other symptoms?
How far along are you?

With my 1st pregnancy, I had that happen. I woke up with bad stomach cramps and had to go to the bathroom. It was like that all night. Then early that morning I was having cramps and contractions. I also was nausea the night before, couldn't finish eating. I went to the hospital the next day and was already dilated 6 cm. :0

Girl, I've had the poops now for almost 4 straight weeks, lost my mucous plug 3 weeks ago, had spotting/light bleeding on and off during the last 4 weeks, and I'm still preggo.

AND I'm only 34 1/2 weeks.

These poops really suck.

I remember them starting with my 2nd around the 7month/30 weeks too.

that was freeky. i was just about to write the same thing. i have been having diarrhea for the past 3 days. and going at least 6+ times a day.  to where it hurts to wipe(tmi). mine started monday night at 1130pm, w/ what i think were contractions? (first time making it this far in pregnancy) crying, feeling sharp pains in my girly area all at the same time. lasted for a half an hour. finily got some sleep and up and down the rest of  the night w/ "the runs" and still to this moment.  
My mom wants me to go to the dr. but i am scared to. i am only 35w2d. and she told me that it could be a sign. I kept joing around saying ol she can come anytime, and i am ready for her too. and once monday night happened, i was crying for her not to, she isnt ready. BUT i guess if she is she will come when ever.

Good luck hun.

Aw, how exciting!  I have had this going on for a few weeks and am still at a 2 as of today, will be induced next Thursday if no baby yet.  I also have nausea and lost some weight this week.  I was like this with my first one too.  Some people are lucky though, and it can be a sign that labor is coming.  Good luck!
