Is labor near?

I've been losing my mucus plug off and on since last week, I have been a lot wetter down there through out the day, been having lots of pressure in my pelvic floor, and having lose stools since yesterday.

The books all have SO many signs but so many of them are vague.

Did any of you experience these things? If so how long before labor did they start?

  • yeah it sounds to me that labor is near, other than the mucus plug they are all good signs for labor. I lost my mucus plug at 25weeks and went into labor at 41weeks.
