Thank you for your query.
You could be having mild gastroenteritis, causing mild diarrhoea and nausea.
This would be accompanied by stomach cramps and flatulence.
Labour is sometimes preceded by diarrhoea.
This would be accompanied by intermittent hardening of the uterus ( contractions ) , mucoid blood tinged discharge etc.
take care.
