    Mine have changed too - again, TMI, but they have changed from little 'ploppy' ones to more loose ones which sink to the bottom of the pan! Also, they have changed colour from dark to a lighter, almost green, colour. Very odd!

    I have read that your body has a big 'clear out' before labour - but not sure when or if this is true...

    Thats exactly whats happened to me today!!! It smelt like baby poo (sorry tmi) but i wondered if it was too early for a clear out as i'm only 34 weeks?

    Not exactly the pleasent of symptoms huh?

    oh the clear out thing is totally true. The week or so before I went in with my first was every ten-twenty minutes.

    Ive noticed this! Ever since about 34 weeks things have been good down south... lol I had one instance with a hemmi but after that, things have been keeping clear and its so weird! I hope baby girl can wait and doesnt try to come early..but it may just be a metabolism thing since Ive been exercising a bit more and drinking tons more water since its been so hot outside!
