Possible signs labours close..?

I'm 37+2 days pregnant (FTM) I lost my mucus plug last Thursday and have also had a bloody show a couple of days ago. For the past 2 maybe 3 days I haven't stopped pooping. It's very loose stools but I go about 2-4 times a day. Normally I struggle a lot to go and can only go 2-3 times a week! Is this a sign that labour is near?
