Nicole, sounds like whether it was your whole plug or just part of it, it probably means you're dilating more. Which is good! I'm totally thinking about you, Friday is so close!
But still hoping you go on your own between now then.
Harpersmion, yeah for baby diapers! Hope the carseats fit! (Eek!)
Keeta, I went to a local LLL meeting last night too, after not having gone since DD was tiny. We're on the same wavelength!
Abystoma, hope you're feeling better today.
And show us a picture of the longies when you're done!
Aramat, I hope things are better for you today. I keep thinking about you IRL. I want to give your DH a talking-to myself!! Know that we're all sending you love from our various corners of the world.
I totally thought I was going into labor last night. *Major* contractions about ten minutes apart, like super-painful. Was up until about 1, when they finally subsided and I fell asleep. I was kind of confused about what to do--at 35 weeks am I supposed to go to the hospital to get it stopped, or am I supposed to have the darn baby?? Another couple weeks and it would be more clear, but I didn't know if they still at least do steroid shots for the lungs or what-have-you at 35 weeks? This morning I've only had one big contraction, so I feel like whatever was going on has passed. I'm kind of on the lookout for mucousy globs myself, because I can't imagine that I didn't dilate some more during all that.
In the meantime, we're having a winter storm here, with only a so-so amount of snow but lots of ice. My poor DH phoned me from the road and it was taking him 2 hours to get to work, which usually takes 25 minutes. Poor guy. All the local schools are closed, and DD and I are cancelling all the out-and-about plans we had today since DH recommends not driving. This would NOT be a good day to need to get to the hospital!
