Stomach bug or labor

So I’m 36+5. This is the furthest I’ve ever gotten in a pregnancy. Both of my others were premature and the labors happened extremely quickly and suddenly. I do have a cold but the last few days my stomach has been kinda icky feeling and I’ve been using the bathroom a lot. Just now I had awful diarrhea. I have contractions every so often. My back is starting to hurt more. I just had a cervix check today and they said I’m still at 1 cm (been there for months) and it’s very soft.

Trying to figure out if I’ve got a stomach bug or is labor getting ready to start.
