Posted under October Mums about this too but after doing some googling of the topic I'm now thinking could this be a sign. I'm going to the loo (no.2 :-8 ) about 3 times a day for the past week. In fact since yesterday I have to go after every meal. Does this mean labour is imminent? And body is clearing out for the big event. DH is away tomorrow overnight and I'm getting a bit worried about having to send him a photo on his mobile of our new baby if it arrives :o0

Oh he will have plenty of time to get back! it normally doesnt happen that quickly on your first. From what I can remember I had it two days before I got a 'show' did'nt go into 'proper' labour for two days after. Had docs appointment the morning I got the show anyhow and the doc kept me in. Phoned hubby straight away he came to hosp but babs did'nt arrive for two day after.....

This happened to me but I didn't realise it was a sign of labour at the time, I was going a lot during the day and then went into labour later that night a week early Good luck :o)ll
