34 wks and been feeling like I'm getting my period for the last 2-3 days. Not to mention I'm nauseous. Are these signs labor could be near?

Not necessarily. I've been feeling like that for months

Not necessarily.  With my first, I started losing bits of my mucous plug about a week before I went into labor but the actual labor kind of snuck up on me and I wasn't expecting it at 38 weeks.

I started nesting two days prior to giving birth with my first two pregnancies .

My water only broke with the first baby.

I had diarrhea with the second baby
right before delivery.

With my 3rd no signs until I was in labor.

Not really...sounds like pregnancy in general to me and not really labor nearing.

Maybe tmi... For me I've noticed that I'll have an upset stomach for a few days before I lose my mucus plug and then labor usually starts a few hrs-the day after I lose my plug. At least that's how it's been with my last three.

I never anticipate labor, no. All this sounds like normal end of pregnancy to me!

Not necessarily.  With mine, I had no signs, symptoms or early labor until the first big contractions.
