  • sounds like labor is coming diarrhea is very common (in natural birth)
    stay hydrated
    have sex (it helps speed up the process)
    and lay down on your side as much as possible watch the rocky movies or something to pass the time
    oh and if this is your first you probably dont have a mucous plug or if you do you'll barely notice it

  • It's the EARLY early labor, there's a name for it, I forget what it's called though. The same thing happened with me. Except I had no energy lol.

  • Those symptoms are all normal including the bowel movements. The baby is putting pressure on everything and you have probably hit the nesting phase which is the burst of energy.
