I had some bad diarrhea this morning for a few hours. I read up on this diarrhea and some sites say that labour could be near. Anybody experienced that and if so how long before you went into labour?

HiYa, yeah I've had the same problem today but not sure if its a bug or pregnancy related? I'm 37 weeks preg in 2 days so is a little early to be in labour, but I've had really bad diarrhoea today and nausea. I've checked a few websites and they've said that it could be due to a change in pregnancy hormones round about this time? I hope it is not early labour as I still have another week or work to go!!!

Hi, That is how my body had acted before I had my first 2 babies. The third I was induced. I am scheduled to be induced tomorrow. I woke at 4 am with diarrhea, nausea. I do not have an appet_te. I was told it is your body cleaning itself out before delivery. Good Luck.

Hi Lauraloo I was 39 weeks with first and 37/1 with 2nd. My body acted like I had the flu for a day and then I went into labor. Good Luck. I am off to the hospital!

Hi, I have had diarreha for 3 days. I am due tommorow and my doc did a membrane sweep wednesday. I lost my mucus plug thursday and have been spotting since thursday with contractions getting down to 6 minutes apart, but they wont stay consistant and I have tried every thing to get myself to go besides the castor oil which I am not much on.I have all the signs of impending labor, but this little guy just dosen't want to leave his nest! I was scheduled for an induction on Monday the 10th, but now I have to go back to the doc on Thursday for another checkup if he hasn't arrived by then so i guess i'll just have to wait and see till then, but until then I am gonna do a lot of walking! Good luck!

I've beem told by my doctor that its a natural way of your body cleaning itself out to make more room for the baby.

I had a bad case of diarrhea last night. So far nothing for me. However with my first i had diarrhea the night before my water broke. I had it that evening and I woke up at 2am and my water broke.

I think I have had mild diarrhea almost everyday for the past week and half. usually I have a regular bowel movement and a couple hours later I have loose stools and severe cramping. It is so strange. I am 38 weeks today, 2cm dilated and 80% effaced. Everyone says something different and I understand how confusing this all is.

I had really bad diarrhea and nausea last night with strong painful contractions that woke me from my sleep at 4 in the morning! After 3 1/2 hours of contractions that were 5 to 15 min apart, they just went away =( All that pain for nothing! It felt like I was going to die. I am 37 weeks 1 day.
