Had my first real go around with "I think this may be it" this morning. Been spotting a touch since exam yesterday morning, but lost a couple huge globs of bloody mucus this morning early, after being up with new low back pain all night. For about 3-4hrs I had intermittent low back pain (luckily had None of that this pregnancy) the was accompanied by period-like cramps. I felt the same way the day before I went into labor with DD1. I was sure that was it, just because it felt SO similar.

Laid down at noon with DD2 to sleep, dozed off right after what I would call a first solid starting in the back moving to the front with a definate peak and reallly hurt contraction...... woke up, and while I am still having a low back dull ache and some cramping, the intenseness has subsided, dangit. At least I got an hour nap, if nothing else.

Going to get dinner in the crock pot, pick up DD1 from school, go to the gym and pretend like it didn't happen.

Since I had NO (like zero, nada, zilch) indications of labour before DS was born. I have no idea what to be looking for lol ( well besides reading all of your posts and seeing who delivers ) But I have been having bouts of painful contractions in the evenings and this afternoon which makes me worry that I really won`t know when it`s real. so I am doing "forced nesting" on the off chance I don't hold out for the next ten days.... you know since we moved 4 weeks ago there is plenty of stuff to be done. I am currently making a few meals for the freezer which will make me feel a little more "ready"

randomly spaced mild achy contractions since last night I did get to sleep and slept ok. I might be gearing up, or not this is my first so I have no idea really.....

Lost a lot of blood tinged mucous today and have had a lot of contractions... although none of the contractions seem to be "it" and I've stopped timing them out of sheer frustration. Surely after hours and hours of contractions they would feel stronger by now. I'm still functioning fine.

Went to grocery store this afternoon to stock up. DS is plopped down in front of a movie and I plan to keep him there until bedtime -- which unfortunately won't be until 9 or so since he took a great nap today.

I feel like a watched pot and this royally sucks.

Is nausea a possible symptom of labor?
post #127 of 173
well lots of cramping low tonight...back aches...and tons of mucous....no other signs yet but I'm trying to breathe through the waves...

After contrx all evening, culminating with 2 around 2am that woke me up and doubled me over, I fell back asleep and NOTHING this morning.

With the exception of a handful of BH with my first two, I never had painful contrx prior to labor, and only had the low abdominal cramping and low back ache a day or two prior to labor.

So BAH for this one breaking the mold. Back to the normal life races today.

last night was a long one here too...the back cramps intensified and then I dealt with sharp cramps in front....was able to sleep few hours at a time but was woken to some hard ones twice....about 4 hours of sleep later I'm up dh got called out last minute to a rig...and I have an appt at 11...and he seemed nervous to go...You could see it in his eyes though that he is getting excited...he hasn't said anything to me other than last night of "you having a baby yet" to which I grunted and moaned at him as I worked through another cramp...but yeah this morning he looked pretty happy...who knows where this is leading us...but my back is still cramping this morning and I'm getting waves of them in my lower stomach.....all I want to do is curl up in a ball in bed and ride it out...but I KNOW that it won't help only walking will....but man my bed sounds so GOOD right now...but ds2 isn't having that desire either

I hear you about just wanting to curl up. My FIL took my 2yp for the morning and I thought about just going right back to bed. But I dragged booty to the gym. If a little stair master can't irritate her enough to come out, then she can just stay there till August.

ugh!

well appt went great...MW told me to go home in case this picks up tonight and we get a baby! I am still SO sore in my lower back and the cramps are killer....nothing regular yet and I am just roaming the house trying to walk them out...

I am really wondering if this even WILL pick up...I never felt like this with my other two...didn't know labor COULD even start like this till talking it out with the MW few weeks back even...and getting more and more antsy as I cramp more and more.

Had some spotting just now. Reddish pink. How much spotting is considered to be bloody show? I'm guessing this small amount isn't very notable.

That counts, in my experience. With DD1 I had one wipe w/ reddish pink, not much, and was in labor w/in 24hrs. I predict you go into labor in the next couple days.

Awesome. Within the next couple of days would be fantastic!

Crossing my fingers!

Woo! Thanks! No labor yet... Headed to my last day of work!

Woot! Bloody show this morning!

I tried a new tactic. Instead of keeping on top of everything (it only takes 36hrs for everything to go downhill around here!!), I just let it slide. 5 loads of laundry to fold and put away, kitchen floor to mop, 8 pies to bake, sink full of dishes, bathroom that needs cleaning... and it appears to be working!

Truck load of cement was postponed from last week until today so DH is off work at 1pm and cement shows up at 2.

Reverse psychology is awesome!
