Loose bowels in late pregnancy!

Hi,
Without tmi, I've had very loose bowels this evening, on three occasions. Is this possibly an indication that labour is imminent? I'm due Sunday. I don't feel sick or have a stomach ache, it's just a bit unusual for me! Thanks in advance!

Might be a good sign, I had what felt like the beginnings of an upset stomach the day before I had my Daughter. Could be the body getting itself ready by emptying out.
Good luck and hope all goes well if it is the start of something smile

I just can't relax, I had lower back ache yesterday evening and as I'm taking iron supplements I'm normally suffering from constipation, but tonight has been very different. We shall see! Thanks for your replies :-)

How are you doing Tillytoes? Hoping you woke up with contractions. I had a pretty labour clear out too.

No sign of baby arriving yet, but seem to have some pretty reassuring signs labour is imminent. Our baby is still breech, so desperately hoping she turns the last minute confused

Have you tried the spinning babies website? It might help! Good luck smile

MrsAnxiety1-Yes have tried many of the exercises from spinning babies, they also tried an ECV, but that failed too. Her bottom is engaged in my pelvis now, so the likeliness of her turning now is very slim, but it may still happen.
