Since last night I have been getting really bad diarrhea (SORRY TMI) In my birthing class I was told diarrhea is a sign of going into labor (not always of course) but it's so sudden that I get diarrhea and this morning I went 3 times with really bad urges...

Did you other mom's go through something like this as well before going into labor? and BTW I'm 39 weeks pregnant right now~ thanks!

  • Never had this happen. If ya need to stop the poopers...try the B.R.A.T. diet....banana's, rice, apple sauce and toast. This is very helpful!
    Hope ya feel better and your bundle of joy will come soon.
