BMs before labor?

Please talk to me about your poop before you went into labor. Don't try to make it sound appropriate--I'd like all the shitty details please.

With DS I had a lot of "loose" bm's, not liquidy, but not solid, then had liquid fire coming out just as active labor started. Woooweee I really peeled the paint off the walls!

Are you having a change in bm's today??

The entire week before Timothy was born, I was a bit "loose"... not diarrhea or anything, but just "soft serve", I guess. Rather annoying really.

It was normal the weekend I went into labor, but I felt like my body had been cleaned out the whole week!

And with my first birth, my body cleaned out right as I went into transition. So it can be different with each one.

Ahhh since you asked they smell like I have lit them on fire! Awesome!!! And they're very smeary, nasty, and frequent. The MW got sort of excited about the poop.

Uh, mine too. For the past 10 days or so.

Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I don't recall anything about my poop before the birth of my son nearly 4 years ago

Voltige, it is so nice to know that there are at least 2 of us out there who have the flameshits. Safety in numbers!!!

With DD1 I didnt have anything out of the ordinary. I do remember that during her labor when a bit of poop came out during the pushing phase, I was throughly grossed out at the smell. LOL
This time I have had loosish stools for atleast a week now.

For the last few days I have had extremely soft and extremely stinky poos! Is it crazy that I am excited about them?! I didn't experience this with my son but b/c they are coupled with non-progressing contractions I definitely think we are getting some place! Woo-hoo! This morning I woke up to lots of bloody show after a period of strong, intense contractions. Then my son woke up and my body mellowed out a bit so I've still (potentially) got a long road ahead of me but I'll keep you posted on my crap....heh.

I just went from being horribly constipated to slightly loose stool for the entire week before labor began. Once it began, I had diarrhea. It's one of the reasons I ended up laboring/birthing in the bathroom actually. Much easier to be right there, ha

Slept in late and went to visit the porcelain god...speaking of god, GOOD GOD that's some stinky mess. Febreeze really doesn't help here in this situation!!

Different DDC but I'll chime in about my last one...no odd poops until I got to the birthing center, and then on and off within the 5 hours of my labor I had to race to the bathroom with explosive poops.

Eek. Well, better before labor than during, right?!

The only thing I remember is that in the last 12-24 hours before labor really began, I went a LOT. Probably every four hours or so (and I'm a once-a-day kinda gal). I don't remember any difference in, uh, "quality". I just remember thinking, "Again? Really? Weird..."
