Does anyone know if diarrhea is a sign of labor?

Here's a little something I found in an article @ parents.com Five signs that you're in labor.
During the early part of labor, your body begins to release prostaglandins, a group of hormonelike substances that cause the uterus to contract and help soften and dilate the cervix. But prostaglandins can also hyperstimulate the bowels, causing frequent stools or even diarrhea, according to Dr. Grabowski.
I hope this doesn't happen to me.
