i've been having this since yday and have heard it normally means labour is a bout a week or so away. just wondering how true this is or if it could be much longer away than that?

I have heard that lots. I get a touch of that around my period, only slightly but it does make me believe that it could be hormonal! Good luck!!

How many weeks are you ? Ds was born about a day later !

MTT, I have been having this on and off for a couple of weeks but I'm only 30 weeks pg.

When I had my dd that is how my labour started off. A sudden bout of diarreah and throwing up for about a couple of hours, it settled and then the contractions started!

Good luck

Not necessarily. I've never had it before labour, but had it on and off throughout pregnancy - I assume because of my cravings for salads. Still, if you're term or near there, it wouldn't do any harm to be prepared!

i keep throwing up as well. had pains yesterday but they have gone now. probably just to do with the diarrhoea.

I had diarrhoea just before I went into labour with dd1 and dd2. I didn't with ds, which was a shame, because I had a waterbirth so you can guess what happened

loose bowels and throwing up was how it all started with ds. Had him within 24 hoursw of starting to throw up. Good luck
