38 weeks, random diarrhoea labour sign?

Last night I suddenly came over completely nauseous and ended up having watery diarrhoea for about an hour (sorry tmi!). This morning I had a small ish amount of mucusy discharge when wiping. I've read lots online about 'clearing out' being a big labour sign however I just can't believe it is, maybe because I'm only 38 weeks?

Has anybody experienced this and found they went into labour shortly after?

I know with my 2nd i definitely did. I lost my plug on the tuesday, and Wednesday night i was sick and had a bad belly and suddenly felt the need to go to bed at 10pm and was awake 2.5 hours later with my waters leaking. Fingers crossed x

Happened to me about 37 weeks! Although I didn’t go into labour until 39+4. So you never really know. I also had what felt like two very strong braxton hicks but now I’m thinking it was probably just a tummy bug.

I had a major clear out and dd was born later that day.

I was 38+4

Ds was 37+3 and I didn’t have a clear out with him….I ended up pooing during labour
