  • In the video it states that these 6 signs can happen 2-4 weeks before labor begins, also not every pregnant women will get every one of these signs, and also they are in not distinct order. Watch the video, there is a link at the end!! Hope this helps! :)

    · Braxton Hicks
    · Weight Stabilization
    · Burst of Energy
    · Baby Dropping
    · Increased Vaginal Discharge
    · Diarrhea

  • A lot of moms have "soft" BM's right before labor. You can be 2 cm for 4 weeks honestly...

    Signs to look for... if you dont know already,
    Lightening or Dropping of the baby
    Increase in "practice contractions" AKA Braxton Hicks
    Weight loss
    Bloody show (after sex and an exam is normal)
    An upset stomach
    Water breaks
    Contractions do get closer together, stronger, you can feel them all over,and if walking they get stronger.
    Good Luck, hoping for a healthy little one! Congrats!
