Loose stools can be a sign of labor. Real contractions (they feel like menstrual cramps) and back labor pains (it feels like you're on your monthly in your back). Other than the loss of plug and the waters breaking I don't know any others lol. You can also lose your plug and not have any labor at all. I lost mine at my 37 weeks mark and didn't go into labor at all. Hope this helps!

Nesting can also be a sign labor is near, although you can start nesting weeks before going into labor

You can have a clear out (or go the opposite way and suffer constipation), mucus plug comes away, period pains that keep coming and going, hind waters break, main waters break, nesting, loss of appetite, back pain - pretty much what hte other ladies have said

I've heard maybe a decrease in appetite, upset stomach or nausea, and some women lose a few pounds before labor.

I'm still eating like a starving pig, so at this rate labor may be waaay off for me

I'm sure nesting is a myth!! I always get insulted when people suggest I'm nesting! But I am a closet feminist! Hehe! You won't find me cleaning! Haha!

I have a book which says that when they ask new mothers what things they did/felt before labour there were two signs which they didn't realise were signs of labour. One of them is feeling quite sick (apparently also linked to a shorter labour) and the other is a desire to be on all fours. This isn't making excuses to get on all fours because you think it will help etc. but just having a strong desire to hand clean a carpet, for example, with no real reasoning behind it.
