    I am 35 weeks preggo, and when measure by the midwife the other day was measuring 42 weeks!!!!
    Baby measures 36+6.

    I have been told because of this i am likely to pop any time.

    Since the day before yesterday i have been having a bit of a clear out, not runs or anything, but my poop literally falls out of me, and i have to run to the bathroom to make sure i don't have an accident.

    Previous to this i have been sooo constipated, and have really had trouble going because of the excess water i am heaving around, so it is a relief to be honest!

    Is this normal?
    Perhaps a sign of body gearing up for the big day?

    a lot of people say getting loose bowels is a sign labour could be on the way but yet some days im loose and get my hopes up thinking labour could be round the corner (e.g yesterday) but then today im back to being bloody constipated
    ive been like this now for a few weeks going in fits and jerks of being loose then struggling so maybee a sign but may not be a sign :-/
