I'm 37 weeks and for the last 2 days I keep feeling like I need to go to the toilet for #2... I lost count how many times I went yesterday cause I just go a little at a time... I've been having heaps of BH over the last 2 weeks which I know is normal for this time, but the toilet thing I've never noticed before... I suppose I'm just wondering if it's normal and does it mean that labour is close?

I've heard it means baby is engaging and pushing lower into your pelvis. I never had it though with either kids but I've got wide pelvis bones. Maybe give your midwife a call? Could be any day now!!!

I spent the 24 hours prior to my contractions starting similar to this. I thought I was coming down with a tummy bug. Turns out it was just my bodies way of getting ready for labour.

That happened to me when I was 36+6. I went to the toilet for about 8hrs, cleaned out then the labour started. 2 days later she was out, took so long because she was posterior. Good luck!
