I think everyone is different on the mucus front.... But it can re grow.. I just don't know how fast it re grows. Either way.. It soups mean cervical change at the very least! Hang I'm there ladies!

Yeah my midwife said it regenerates. I lost this insanely golf ball like wad - and it actually flung across the bathroom somehow when I wiped, early one morning. I had no idea what was happening. But I found it on the floor when I woke up again a couple hours later!!!! SO gross. And thank GOD my husband did not see it when he was showering for work. LOL! But I also had a lot of mucous while wiping before that and little pieces. I think that was 3-4 days before I had the baby. But I didn't lose my plug at all the first time until mid labor. I think if there is pink in it it means things are a lot closer.

I had some pink the night before last, but still nothing. I am so frustrated!

Nothing here, either. Had decent contractions when I went to bed & they stopped. Great.

My mucus plug and bloody show have never come til actual active labor.  Of course, everything's up for grabs at this point since I am in a whole new world...hot flashy, nauseated, cold feet, and oh yeah, 41 wks tomorrow.  Never been there before.  Guess I am making up for having my last 2 wks early, lol.

BUT!  I went to bed at 9.45 and slept through the night!  woke up sOOOOO rested at 6.30 am.  YAY.

Boo for no labor for you ladies, but dannic, that sleep sounds amazing! I'm super jealous!! Well, of the sleep, not the 41 Weeks! :/

I'm pretty sure that if red blood is involved with the mucous, then labor is imminent...but I could be wrong-- just wanted to give you some HOPE!!  LOL  If it's just mucous or brown blood, it means nothing  :/


I so feel for those who are overdue.  I keep having this strange suspicion that I'll be overdue- which makes me want to vomit.  I think I'm just being pessimistic b/c I'm cranky.  I'm not due until the 19th, but this pregnancy has been so easy...I'm afriad I'm going to pay for it.  :/  My 1st 2 were early-- one week and then 3 days early.  Plus, I had no idea what the 1st day of my last period was b/c we had been hoping to get pregnant for 1 1/2 yrs.  I stopped keeping track...  My due date is from the 10 week ultrasound-- my best guessitmate for my period resulted in a due date of 10-26-12.  I have to keep reminding myself that the 19th might not be right...

I think this is the new chat thread, lol...


I reminded dh that this time was different even in the beginning...usually I can take a preg test before my period date and get a pos reading--this time, it took two weeks after that date to get a pos and it was faint...so it could be a late implantation thing and baby isn't really ready.  But if I am going STRICTLY by edd I am a week overdue manana...

I am actually really chill this week and the end of last.  I feel confident that the Lord, my baby and my body all know what they are doing; it's everyone else that is driving me bonkers, with their gasping that I may be a day overdue, let alone a week...

My mom is out of town overnight and my sis just left for hawaii til the 20th.  She brought me a beautiful blanket, 4 burpers and 4 bibs all matching that she had made and cried.  None of us thought she wouldnt' be around, lol. 

so with both them and midwife gone, I am guessing I go into labor tonight. lol.  Its acutally a bit cloudy and windy, so if it storms, I'll have that in my favor, right?!

IDK about the blood b/c the midwife told me there would be red blood. She said if it got heavy like a period, that was wrong, otherwise there might be/would be red blood. I shed gobs of mucus yesterday & am still having v v light blood. It's still red, but I'm not in labor. Membrane sweeping isn't guaranteed to do anything anyway :/ I won't be having it done again. With how many painful contractions that have led to nowhere, I'm kind of upset that I wanted it done. Well, to be fair, idk that the contractions are doing "nothing" since I can't check myself, but unless my labor is, like, two hours long, I will assume it's doing nothing. Not to mention, I do have a c/s scar & I don't like to think about how much pressure all the low contrax are putting on it. Unfortunately for me, I have been this pregnant before :)

sounds like you are close dogretro!  My mom had 2 c secs and had 3 vbacs afterwards!  The body is an amazing thing. 


hopeful to hear of some more births this weekend! 

post #31 of 32

Is anyone else's baby totally moving like crazy in between the contrax? Mine have reaaaaalllly picked up in strength, but aren't close together yet and I can't sleep b/c he's literaly rolling all over the place and punching/grinding my cervix like crazy. He's usually pretty active, but not like this. I'm wondering if I'm in labour and he knows it and is trying to dig out too????


I think there will be some fast births with all this pre-labour action - hopefully relatively pain free too!

I got some good sleep last night too!  I went to bed with the boys at 8.  I was planning to get up and watch the debate . . . but I was so warm and cozy snuggled up between my boys.  DH brought me my heartburn medicine and I stayed in bed till 6:30 this morning.


Though I was up and down a lot during the night.  Around 2 yesterday afternoon I started having some contractions every 15 minutes.... soooo I took some castor oil.  Then when I went to bed the contractions stopped, and the bathroom trips didn't start until 10 pm!  


Last Friday I had the same contraction patterns all evening until I went to bed.  I'm tempted to stay up next time this happens, but I want to get rest when and if I can too.... le sigh.  


Still loosing mucus too...


My friend/doula is leaving tomorrow until Tuesday :(   I know it's early, and my midwife says don't worry about it yet . . .but I'm worried about a hospital induction!  :(  I have an appointment with my parallel care midwife at Duke on Tuesday and they'll do a NST, and would like to schedule an induction date then.  I WILL NOT AGREE TO ANYTHING BEFORE 42weeks + 2 days or later.  I hope they will be nice and accommodate that request.  I'll even come in daily for a NST if they will let me go longer.  My first son was born with at the hospital with induction, and I would REALLY like to avoid that... but, If I have to, really really have to, I want to be with these wonderful, home birth supportive midwives at Duke.  They have been more than amazing.
