    A question for those who have experienced this in previous pregnancies. When your bowels cleaned out, were you just having several bowel movements or was it diarrhea? Kind of a yucky subject but I'm curious LoL.

    I keep having to make hasty journies to the littlest room - my bowels are definitely having a life of their own right now :wacko:

    My son was born on a monday, on the sat and sun I went to the loo a LOT more than usual! I was getting worried so I asked a friend who had kids and she said the same thing happened to her so maybe something was starting, and she was right :) x

    Has anyone NOT had this? I only ask because it seems as if this is the one clue that I am waiting for to let me know I'm getting close. I'm ignoring strong BH, pains and cramps and just waiting for the clearout lol!

    I actually never had this. I remember it had actually been a few days since I'd gone #2- it made me worried I'd explode during labor, but I didn't! lol

    I didn't have it with my other two, I had it twice so far so I thought maybe... As my diarrhea was followed by some intense bh. Still preggers here.

    This is what I noticed the last several days...just more often and soft. This morning has been a bit different but nothing severe. I just read that it's when your body starts releasing prostoglandin that causes the change in BM. I still have a few weeks so I'm not sure but I hope for you that it is sooooon!!!
