I am 41 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I am tired! I want the baby to be here so bad, but my daughter carried to 42 weeks and 3 days, so I could have some time still. Anyway, the morning I went into labor with my daughter I noticed a bunch of completely clear mucous after wiping, and I didn't think anything of it because I wasn't sure if it was something from having sex the night before. I went into labor at 10 that night.
Two days ago I noticed some of the same clear mucous streaking the toilet paper, and I got so excited. I also started having contractions, although they've been almost completely painless. Yesterday I had a huge blob of mucous, and this morning some more. Still contracting, but not painfully and not regularly at all. I had heard that mucous plugs were usually tinged with red or brown, but everything I've had has been completely clear, and maybe something with a little white in it. It's my mucous plug, though, right? And I guess I was assuming that after losing it I'd go into labor relatively quickly, like I did last time, but it's not happening. How early before labor did you lose your mucous plug?
This is so weird to me, because I've never had pre-labor contractions with any previous pregnancies. But I've had contractions on and off for days this time and it's making me so restless!
