  • you're probably getting ready for labor. The body tends to "clean itself out" before real labor begins. Congratulations!!

  • Sometimes when you are getting ready to deliver your body starts cleaning itself out.

  • Thats what i was thinking but this one is completely different than when i was pregnant with my son... With him i stayed backed up and only went 1 time a day till the day he was born... i know that no one will know but usually how long after does labor start? I was induced with my son and will be induced due to medical reasons with this one if she is not here by monday

  • Yep pooping is a sign of labor. I know when I went into labor with dd I was pooping like 2x an hour. lol

  • im not sure why your going so often, because i was induced so i dont know what its like to go into labor on your own, but i know the prenatal vitamins can turn the color or your poop
