One way of your body preparing for labour is an increase in bowel movements, but this usually happens within 24 hours of labour starting. It is not a good indicator though as several other things can cause this such as diet and your baby getting bigger and moving down which squashes your bowels so they can't hold as much. Signs to look out for are restlessness, a show, waters breaking and contractions. Saying that, I had a show and my waters broke about an hour or two before birth. It is different for everyone. You will know when it happens as the pain from the contractions stop you from being able to do anything else. Good luck, you are not far away now!
