Loosing my plug ? Breast changes ?

Ok , you may be able to tell that I am starting to over analyze stuff here lol , but it's not because I am getting impatient to have this baby , I love being pregnant and am already starting to miss it seeing as I'm so close to my due date , but I am amped to have my VBAC and go through labor knowing what I do now and seeing how differently it will turn out .

But anyhoo I keep seeing these lil things that make me wonder if they could be early signs that something is close to happening ( duh I'm due in 10 days lol ) , so I thought it's either clean or go on DS and ask about it .

I was breastfeeding my lil guy till my milk dried up at 20 weeks pg , then 2 months after that I started to make colostrum again but only a lil bit , I could squeeze tiny lil beads out but they were tiny and clear . Well now my boobs feel just a tiny bit more full , and I am getting a good bit more colostrum out plus it has a milky white to it too instead of just being clear .

Also the past two days there have been a few times that I saw lil stringy things in my pee ( ooh gross lol ) , they kind of looked like the cord thingy in eggs that you get sometimes , could this be lil bits of my plug ? I never saw anything with my lil boy that looked like it could be my plug , in fact I have no clue what happened to the darn thing lol . I am 2 cm's dilated and 70% effaced so I am thinking I must be loosing some by now lol .

Anyway I was just wondering , with my lil boy I went into labor the day I hit 39 weeks which I will be on Sunday , so part of me wonders if I will go around the same time or carry longer ( which would be fine ) .

I agree...sounds like you are losing your plug. Hopefully it is a sign of things happening soon.
