  • that feeling of whether you have to poop or puke is totally normal! i had my son at 36+5 weeks and had the feeling 2 days prior to going into labor. i would make an appointment with your OB to get checked! sounds like you're ready to start pushing soon! congratulations!

  • the fact that it runs down your leg...that may be a tear in your placenta and those are your waters. call your doctor asap, and ask them. nothing should be running down your leg, ever.
