  • how far along are you? those are some of the signs of prelabor, but it may be something else too.

  • Worried? If you are full term then sounds like you will be having a baby in the near future.

  • You need to call your doctor NOW! You could be going into premature labor.

  • i always heard that it is common to have diarreah like a week or so before you go into labor...same with losing your mucus plug, you dont go into labor as soon as you lose it....if you are having contractions or pain, then call, otherwise you should be ok to wait until atleast tomorrow.

  • Sounds like your body is probably just going through the normal courses when affected by pregnancy hormones.
