  • That happened to me. I had started to have the runs then my contraction started to come closer and stronger.

  • Very well could be.. I have heard its quite common to experience diarrhea at the beginning of labor.

  • Didin't happen to me personally, but it's a very common thing...sounds like early labor to me...but just remember...early labor can last days before active labor kicks in. Go for a walk or something to see if that keeps them going!

  • Yep, sure can be a sign! And a good thing too because its better to have all that out before you give birth,lol..otherwise it will come out then! must be so anxious now! Congradulations!
    I'm jealous..wish I was 39 weeks already, lol.

  • Never happened to me with my pregnancy's. but if you are getting cramping every know and then it could be the start of labor. Just keep and eye on them.
