Gastrointestinal upset before labor?

This maybe more than anyone cares to respond to but I have read that you can get tummy aches and diarrhea before labor begins. What I am wondering is how soon that it starts. Is it like the week before or an hour? I am asking simply because things have not been so pretty the last couple of days and when I went to the doctors today I was diated to almost a three. Any thoughts?
