\Sorry if TMI



I read somewhere that having diarrhea can be a sign of labor?



True or False

Yes, it can be a sign, but it's not definitively a sign of labor.

I had to edit it. I guess I hit enter before typing the question. Silly me.

It can be, but doesn't mean its happening. It's just your body clearing out beforehand.

Ok



I had "lose BM" a month and a half before giving birth up until I delivered. I think it's just your body's way of cleansing itself out before birth. I wouldn't say it's a sign or labor though.

Yes, it can be a sign but doesn't mean labor is going to start then & there, it just means that its near! :D

If contractions start and don't stop with rest and hydration, then you know.



I should probably make a disclaimer for those that argue that they never had regular contractions. Everyone pregnancy is different. You may know, you may not know. Fortunately, I had a BM while in labor, so I didn't poop on the delivery table.

Okay. Just wondering. It seemed really weird when I read it.
