okay so a bit TMI. I know diahrrea is a sign of labor. I ask because (seriously TMI) I haven't had a solid bowel movement in a few days. it's been straight liquid. could I go in labor soon? I have lower back pain and some light stomach aches at night. but no other "signs". I just worry cause I went into labor at 35 weeks with my 2 yr old and I know that can slightly increase the chance for premature labor/birth for the second one.

— No , I had diarrhea for a bit too, didn't mean a thing , at least not about labor, do the BRAT diet and stay hydrated ,

— above all make sure you are staying hydrated. it's really easy to get dehydrated with diarrhea and you can go into early labor from dehydration as well.
