Exclamation There goes the mucus plug and here come the contractions!!

UPDATES are In the replies


~ I was talking on the phone and all of a sudden I felt "wet" down there. There wasn't a gush or anything just super "lubricated" or something. I went to peek and my undies are all mucusy (sorry if it's TMI). Not blood tinged or anything though. Is this normal? I assume it is but I don't really remember this. It doesn't seem like my musus plug just like I am super lubricated. It's kind of clearish/whitish.

Okay, update ~ I just went to the bathroom again. I wiped and there was MAJOR mucus plug loss. Way more than I remember with Alex. Kind of just freaked me out so I called dh and now he's freaked out.

Then the contractions started. I am not sure if they started because I got freaked or what so I am trying to calm down and see if they stop. In a way I hope they don't because I'd love to go into labor naturally and have Lilly this weekend. Send some prayers that I go into labor soon!!

YAY!
hopefully this is it for you.

I lost my plug on Friday- and on Saturday night i went into labor

Go do some walking. What helped me (imo it did) was i walked up and down my stairs alot. Also i did some major cleaning around the house.

Yay! I hope it sticks around for you!

I've been losing tiny bits of my plug for about a week now. I wish the rest of it would bloop out...

OH I hope it doesn't stop Dawn! I want you to go into labor on your own!!! I think it would be great if Lilly came the day before she was supposed to be induced!! I hope they keep coming!!! Keep us updated!

Back from your walk. I did have a few contractions but nothing major. The weird thing is I feel like I have a tummy ache and that makes me wonder even more. With Alex I didn't know I was in labor because I had a tummy ache that I *thought* was something I ate. I ended up going to the hospital (to get induced) and was in active labor, dilated to 7. So, now I wait and see. I am off to go clean my kitchen and vacuum the house before the kids nap time.

i'll keep everyone posted!

WOW!!! Congrats and good luck!! Sometimes that eviction notice tends to get babies moving! LOL I lost my mucous plug a week before I was induced but never had the contrx after, yay!!! I honestly think you're in labor! If you have the tummy ache, the contrx and lost your mucous plug and it seems you have that nesting urge... woohoo!! Keep movin' mama!
