    on both of my two i had diarrhea before i went in to labour,

    its meant to be a sign of labor starting or getting close, either that or constipation.

    my midwifes at teh time said, its your bodys way of reslseing or holding back stools so you dont poo yourself when pushing baby out lol, sorry to much info!

    so if that is true, sounds like your well on your way to meeting your baby :)

    Maybe the bath stopped your labour hunnie? My midwife told me they dont normally let you in the birthing pools at hopsital till you are in established labour (past 3cm dilated) and have got to 5cm dilated - just incase it stops/slows it.

    Good luck though babe! Sounds like you are very nearly there! xxxx

    On a similar line Lay, we were told at anti natal that having a bath is great while your at home in early labour for pain relief but to watch that its not really hot, as like Sami says it can stop your contractions. I know I normally have scalding hot baths and come out pink! so if you find you feel like that again, by all means take a bath but warm, not hot!
