Is farting a lot be part of early labor?

I feel like i might be having some contractions but I'm also passing a lot of gas. Is that a sign it's labor or not real labor

    I’ve only done it once (35 weeks now with baby #2), but I’d say probably not. If I’m really gassy or really have to pee, I get a tight contraction-like feeling starting at 18-20ish weeks...I think there just isn’t enough room lol. The first thing I felt when I actually went into labor was more like period cramps than the painless whole belly contraction feeling. Of course, everybody is different.

    The muscles that contract during hard labour are the same muscles you fart with.  So yes, it could be.
