    Hya ladies, i wonder if you can help?

    I am 37 weeks pregnant and have started to get softer stools and become more regular. I was always a regular person anyway, but at the moment i seem to be visiting the loo as much as 3 times a day sometimes, this seems to be the case after meal times or eating.

    I have read in some forums that this could be a sign of things progressing, some even saying this is a sign of being very close to going into labour.

    Does anyone know wether this is the case?

    Thanks

    Sorry I'm not much help, but I've seen a few posts on here saying it can be your body clearing out ready for labour to commence. xx

    I know diarrhea can be a sign labour is coming, but not sure about softer, more regular bowel movements.. I've been having that for at least a week now, with a couple of very soft ones :S (not quite diarrhea, but borderline.. and I'm not in labour yet :p

    As with most things I guess we just have to try to prepare for anything, and keep on waiting...
