non-traditional and/or weird labor signs? share!

post #1 of 10

anyone? dreams, signs, pets behaving strangely....etc?

every day i wake up with a new thing going on.

last night it was an insane giggling/slap happy hysterical laughing jag.

today it was a very hot, red, feverish face! DH called me "apple cheeks" which was funny.

and lots of clear eggwhite type CM (like, hello, there, haven't seen YOU in 9 months!)

and my dog clinging to me at all moments, trying to get up and sleep with me, etc...

anyone else wanna share?

My dog is like a big peice of lint and I'm like a fleece blanket. i.e. he is stuck to me like glue and looks at me all worried. He knows something is changing, and he's right, I lost my plug, or at least part of it, this morning and there was brown blood. : So things are happening. Contractions are intermittent so far, 5 min apart when I am sitting/laying down and more spaced out if I am up and about, or maybe I just don't notice them as much. I've wondered all along if he would be the first alert to this baby coming!

KRISTEN thats so exciting...!!

i know the animals will "feel it" before i do, that's why i am watching them!

it's the boy dog who is so protective of me too, its very cute. with his serious face, staring at me at all hours.

The day before both my kids were born I woke up really early in the morning and took a long walk.

Its odd because I didn't labor with dd, I had a c-section due to breech position and was given/forced into a c-section because I had dilated to 6cm.

It was an interesting walk with ds because it was mid-August and already 95 that morning (got to over 100 later IIRC) and I was contracting every 5 minutes or so. We walked down to a coffee shop and got blended coffees. While walking I was on the phone with my mom and trying to pretend like I wasn't in labor!

Funny you should post this - when I woke I felt icky (loose bowels ), had some light pink mucous (rather than egg white or yellow snotty like it has been since Saturday morning ...), and the cat was following me around (a bit unusual) - I was VERY hopeful! But alas, I am just having a few intense contractions here and there (like right now!) . *sigh*

I felt weird yesterday and the day before.... anytime now!!! I was REALLY hungry all weekend and have been craving things like watermelon (and $7 later had a watermelon on my counter, I DH.

I sent hubby to work, I'm sure things aren't happening THAT fast, but I don't think I'm going to make it to Sat night when my MIL gets here!

Oh, I'm totally craving watermelon!! It's what my mom fed me through my last labor! I went to the store last night to pick one up, but they were all so darn big... I put one on the scale, and it was going to cost me $14!! Ack! I'm going to check another store tonight.

Ah, ours here are priced per watermelon right now rather than per lb. thank goodness too or we'd be broke. I looked for weeks before I finally found this one, but now that I know where to get them if the store by my house doesn't have them it's a 30 min drive to send DH to get me another one!! And he would too.
