Impending Labor Signs??
With just one week to go, I'm wondering about "signs" that labor may be coming that some of you may have experienced. I'm having some belly/ back cramps and seems 10mins after I eat now I gotta go ( gross, I know- loose stool). Plus sleeping is impossible b/c of backache/ belly is big. Could these be signs? I'm a scheduled c-sect., but of course could go in to labor anytime....My worst fear is the water will break at work and some poor soul would have to clean it all up!

Well the sleeping pain doesnt mean you will be going into labor...but i always heard having loose stools is a sign its near(i was induced so i dont have much to tell you from experience), oh i just saw your having a c-section, is this your first baby?

That last week can be brutal! But looking back, it was such and exciting time! :) I had loose stools for the whole last month....except for the 2 days I spent in labor! I felt just fine those 2 days, except that I had shooting pains in my right side that shot through my hip and down my thigh. Turned out those pains were my contractions. That was the only place I felt them through my entire labor was in my leg!  Most people say contractions start in the back and swirl around to the front, though!

I guess I'm not being much help...just rambling! Sorry! lol Good luck with things! Your new little one will be here in the blink of an eye! :)

A few weeks before I went into labor, I had loose stools and contraction-like pains. If its your first, you don't know what those feel like, and the ones I had before labor were different from labor.  Of course, I had really bad back labor... but anyway, I just didn't feel good at all.
