Could be everything loosening up, Lenin, but my bowels did whatever they liked for 4 weeks or so before birth, just to keep me on my toes. With DD1, I kept thinking oooh yes, the books said this would happen, it'll be any day now! She was 8 days late.....

Yep LG. I'm 39+6 today and had raging squits last Friday followed by a mixture of mild constipation and more rapid toilet tripping this week. grin

Who blardy knows?!

I've read that bowel movements increase like passing water in later weeks purely because we have lovely fat babies putting pressure onto our bowels! I find I'm a lot more regular than ever before and I do have the odd bout of diarrhea, too. Lovely...
I'm exactly a week overdue today but that doesnt stop me from getting a bit excited when I have a poorly tum--expecting birth in the next few hours! grin Hasnt come to anything yet!
