Diarrhea


I was just wondering how long is it before labour starts that you get diarrhea? Today I have it bad, and it surprises me because every single day from the day I got pregnant I have had to strain myself to no bloody end just to go poo!
I only ate what I usually eat today, a bowl of lucky charms and a banana which, correct me if I'm wrong, constipates you. My baby is engaged and is head down, I think he's already dropped too since I feel alot of pressure down there all the time! I really hope he would stay in at least till 35-36 weeks if anything though, what do you guys think?

I didn't get it at all before I went into labour hun. Apart from maybe 2 or 3 weeks before but I think that was just a bug.

Diarrhea certainly isnt a definate sign of labour though so try not to get too stressed

Just keep an eye on it and keep hydrated. It could just be your body giving you some constipation relief!

I would just monitor it. I was really really sick on Friday with lots of diarrhea, I ended up having to stay the night at the hospital because I was so dehydrated (Which is one of the main concerns with diarrhea). If you are feeling fine...just make sure to drink lots of liquids. My diarrhea was accompanied by the most PAINFUL abdominal cramps I have ever had!! My OB just decided I had a stomach bug...NOT FUN (especially while pregnant!)

I've had it on and off for a good few weeks and still no sign of LO making her arrival anytime soon! Try not to let it worry you - just keep an eye out for any other signs! x
