I had diarrhea a few hours before going into labor w/ both of my boys. But I also know women who said they had diarrhea off and on for a few days or even a week or 2 before starting labor. So I don't know. LOL! But it IS common to have diarrhea before or during labor. Cleaning out the pipes so you don't make a mess while pushing that baby out, I guess. Makes sense.
I don't mean to be gross, but all day today, I've had pretty loose stools adn I'm wondering if that means tonight's the night. But it's not actually diarrhea like I had w/ my other 2, so I'm not sure what to think. Well, anyway, our home visist is this afternoon, so we have the place all clean and everything in it's place for the birth, so I guess we're ready!
