Signs labor is soon??

Im 36 + 4 days pregnant and the last couple days I’ve just been feeling very off and exhausted more than usual. Been having a lot more Braxton Hicks that are closer together but nothing that lasts long enough to be timed. I also felt baby drop two days ago and have been having a lot of pressure and menstrual like cramps all day during the days and literally going to the bathroom like every 20 minutes today. Today I’ve noticed loose bowels and have gone 3 times. Increase in discharge but haven’t noticed my mucus plug. Did anyone else notice things off before they went into labor? How soon after your baby dropped did you deliver?
