Hello Ladies (:
I'm a first timer , I'm 36w &4d preggo and I was wondering is it true if you get a lot of diarrhea late in pregnancy, labor is around the corner. I've heard that its true. I know tmi but I'm getting a lot since yesterday .
Please answer :)

It is known to be a sign but you could also still have awhile. Probably not what tou want to hear but sometime you body just starts preparing extra early. If your hoping for labor good luck! Welcome and congrats!!

I'm honestly hoping she comes 2 weeks early, I'm way too small and my doc told me my body is tired for all the extra work :/
But thank you !!!:)
