Well I am 39 weeks today by u/s (not til saturday by dates) and today is my 38th birthday. For some reason I keep thinking it will be the 15th, which is sunday. I started losing my plug again (about three weeks ago I lost some, and had contractions off and on, when in for my 37wk apt and found out I was almost 2cm dilated and got excited. Then everything stopped. So I was not surprised at my 38week checkup to be told I was just over 2cm. But Ive had a few mild contractions earlier in the week then yesterday I lost some more of my plug, and it was more than I lost before. Last night I had a contraction that made me think it was time to wake dh up and go....but it was the only one. Today however Ive had several contractions, smallish ones, nothing regular at all but more intense than they have been. I have my 39week checkup tommorow. I expect to have made some progress, how much I dont know.
Of course when I tell my mom stuff like Im losing my plug and I had A contraction, she says, oh well, when you go to the doctor, they'll probally just send you over to the hospital. I said wtf for? Im not in labor yet! I can be dilated and not be in active labor yet. She said oh, but it wouldnt take much for them to put you in labor...but you wouldnt have that, would you? I said NO, why the hell would I induce when Im not even DUE yet and everything is fine and obviously progressing like it should?
