So I hate to speculate here, but I am having a lot of weird things going on. I am 39 1/2 weeks with DD#2. For 2 days now I am having horrible diarrhea, nausea/lack of appetite, anything I eat makes me feel sick. I have had a really achy back, kind of menstrual-crampy, and have been super crabby. I don't really remember what early contractions felt like with DD#1, but I have been getting a lot of intense tightening sensations across my belly. Anyone else experience any of this close to labor? Thanks.
Yes, I have experienced all those things close to labor But, sometimes the cramping, the loose stools, the back ache can come and go for a few weeks before hand, too. I've also experienced that. But you are so so close, so I am sending you some gentle labor vibes! Good luck!

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not.
