The baby has been really head-butting my cervix for the past few days, especially at night while I'm doing hypnosis or falling asleep, and now I lost my mucus plug.
I've been having mildly painful but totally irregular contractions for a week or so and it was a little demoralizing reading about prodromal labor *not* dilating the cervix (??), so even though I don't know that this baby is coming any time soon, it feels good knowing that I am actually dilating and not just going through pain with nothing to show for it. :)
I did read a theory that maybe prodromal labor occurs when baby needs to be squeezed into a better position, so I've been trying to take advantage of the contractions by getting on hands and knees and doing pelvic rocks to help her. Also doing a lot of pelvic opening stuff recently as I started to have a hunch that I might have a pelvic shape that lends itself to posterior positions - I will fight that possibility with all my might! :)
