    the pain is probably the baby pressing down on your cervix

    and the bathroom issues, i have heard that you can get diarrhea before labor begins as your body clears it self out...it doesnt mean you wont poo while pushing the baby out though

    I am in the same pickle as you. I feel like i have been having pains the past three days it gets hard for me to fall asleep. and i got the same peeing issue as you. you are`having diarrhea which could be a sign im having that too. and i am having period like cramping & feel sick too. people are telling me its a sign. so im hoping it is. so i will tell you its a sign. shouldn't be longer for the both of us. my baby already dropped. ask your doctor for a membrane sweep. and just walk and hydrate.
