I am not due til the 20th, but I have had 3 days of diarrhea, multiple times a day, which is NOT normal for me, and I am not sick, and didn't eat anything funky. Could this baby be coming in the near future?!?!?!?

I don't know, but I'm experiencing the same thing. Things have become increasingly looser lately and it seems as soon as my body processes some food it's coming out the back end. So It may be that your labor may be impending or just that your body is just trying to keep things clear for when labor does start. My guess date is the 17, but I'm totally sure that I may have this little one this week or beginning of next week. Anyways, I hope that things are going well for you and that your baby comes when s/he is ready.

I hope so, because I've been like this all day! Lots of crampiness and back pain, too. Fingers crossed!

I'm not due till the 27th, but I've been having the loose stools (yucks) for at least a week now. Plus intermittent crampiness and back pain. In fact, I woke up at 3 AM last night with menstrual-like cramping so bad I was SURE I was going into labor. I didn't have any of this stuff with my first--just passed some bloody mucous one morning, then nothing, then 3 nights later woke up in transition--so this is all new to me, and I have no idea if it means that I'm going to have the baby before 40 weeks (hope hope hope), or if I'm just going to feel like crap for the next 3+ weeks.

I don't know, either. It's been happening for me consistently since Monday, when I also had a lot of bloody show. So far, I'm still here and Lots of menstrual cramps, but they come and go. I'm getting so anxious!

If a few days of diarrhea were an accurate indicator of impending labor, then I should have had this baby 3-4 times by now (My first baby arrived a few hours after the onset of diarrhea/vomiting though...)
