    So the last week I've been getting on and off cramping - I think these are braxton hicks but the last couple days I think it's because I maybe unwell.

    I've had a lot of loose stools and sometimes it's like dirrehea. Very unpleasant smell ( I know it isn't normally but smells like when you ill sorry TMI).

    What do you think it is?

    My stools are horrible dark colour but that's because I take iron tablets - I thought they are meant to make you constipated but do you think this has done the opposite?

    I feel tired and sick sometimes such as tonight but that could just be as I'm coming towards the end of my pregnancy (only 12 days left)

    I'm worrying if I am ill because how am I meant to give birth being ill?!

    All those things are signs that labor is near. I've heard of many women getting upset stomachs towards the end. Mine was pretty bad for a few days. If you are still in doubt talk to your doctor and midwife.

    I was pretty sick the last few days before giving birth...both times. It always went away the day i went into labor and was replaced by true contractions. Good luck!
