Hi there, I'm 37 + 4, and I'm experiencing what I think could be signs of early labor but I'm not sure as I never really had any of these symptoms with my previous labors.
For the past two days, my bowel has been extremely active (I usually have the opposite problem) and stools have been very runny, also about half an hour ago I felt as if I leaked urine, I took a trip to the bathroom to see a small patch of clear water (no smell) and very sticky whitish/yelloish dishcharge. Can anybody shed some light on this for me, Im also usually plauged with braxtons hicks and light period pain but that's been since last week x thanks

There's no proven connection between loose stools and labour being near. Also it's common to get more discharge and braxton hicks towards the end of pregnancy. Sounds normal to me.
