Hi all! I've just started my 38th week, and was wondering what different signs I should look out for that labour may start? For the past couple of weeks I've been experiencing very soft bowel movements (sorry if I gross anyone out), and I've had bh since week 20, but what else should I look out for?

Diaherria is one sign that it is coming. You should be able to distinguish between bh and contractions, b/c contractions you will usually feel from your back and if you change the activity that you are doing contractions will continue no matter what whereas bh will stop when you change activity. If your water breaks make sure you take note of the TIME, AMOUNT, COLOR, and ODOR. That is what I can think of off the top of my head, if I think of more I will post again. good luck!
