Diarrhea or loose stool is often mentioned as a sign of impending labour because your body is clearing out the bowels before labour.

I've only went into labour on my own once years ago so my question is:

Whether this time or a previous time, did you notice any change in bowel movements before labour? Did you have diarrhea or just loose stools? Or did you have normal stools but go more often? Or nothing at all? Something else?

Still pregnant, but I'll be following this thread closely to see what others have to say.

With DS, I didn't notice a change but then again, I was induced. Once everything got going, I didn't poop until shortly after being transferred to my post partum room but it was normal. This time, I've had diarrhea several times off and on but haven't went into labor yet.

It may happen for some but probably not all. I'll be following this thread too. I'm curious how often it happens.

I'm glad you asked this. Because I've gone like 3 times today. It's just after 1130. I've only eaten cereal

Lurking from July/august Ddc.... I just had my last baby naturally 16 months ago and while I was having mild contractions and between 5-7cm dilated, allllll I did was go #2. The labor wasn't hurting yet so I would walk around and go potty about every hour. Not diarrhea, just normal stuff and I guess my body was just clearing out! With my first I didn't do this because I had an epidural and was on my back for 12 hrs.

I went more often, not always loose. I was worried because I felt like I always had to poop and would end up doing it on the table which would have been mortifying but I didn't! I've heard they clean it so fat you wouldn't even know if you did.

the day before I went into labor (and the morning of) I lived on the tolite. not diarrhea but very lose and very frequent I actually sent my better half to get food because it was one of those when i had to go i had to go right then kinda things and i didnt want to have an accident in public lol. TBH I thought i had a stomach bug but im pretty sure now it was just prep work for labor I stopped haveing to go about 3 hours before I had her.
