Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Did your body "clean out" befor LD

Postby babyhelstrup » Tue Jan 19, 2010 12:49 pm

I always heard that you will have loose stools or a lot of BM's before labor. It is your body getting ready. Did you notice this? I never been regular but notice lately I have had one daily. No change in diet or liquid intake. But still a little hard to get out (sorry TMI). And like little pebbles.

Well, that happened to me. Way too much information - But, I knew L & D was near when it turned loose and the color of a Green Apple Jolly Rancher candy. 8O

I didn't have anything like that, but I also never dialated and ended up with a scheduled c-section. Don't go by me!

this definatley happened for me with both my children. With my first, it was like 2/3 days before but at the time I had no idea what it meant. With my last pregnancy, it started 5/6 days before and I knew exactly what it meant. I made sure everything was in order and at 37 weeks 3 days my water broke.

I woke up early that morning with really loose stools (6:30AM). At 7:30 my water broke. Unfortunately contractions were slow coming but it was the start.

Once my water broke and I was in early labor I had a lot of diarrhea for about 20-30 minutes. It cleaned me out and then I didn't have a BM for two days.
