I'm 39 weeks today.. and all along, I've figured the baby would come 'late' like the first week of January. So this morning I woke up and had some brown tinged mucus.. then for the rest of the morning whenever I wipe it's pink!! So, I recall my grandma JUST telling me how she had bloody show and within 24 hours a baby! My books call it pre labor (not even 'false labor'). I'm also getting really mild contractions (i think at least) - but decided to come to my last day of work anyway.. but I'm totally freaking! I really wanted the baby to come after xmas - the chances are increasing for her to be born ON xmas! I also figured I'd have a good week to lounge around relaxing, packing our hospital bags, doing laundry, dishes and just getting stuff ready.. now I feel like all is lost!! an to top it off, I'm feeling increasingly nervous about the whole birth prospect! I've been doing hypnobabies.. so the affirmations on the way to work seemed to help - but I feel so NOT READY for this yet!!! Of course then there is the other hand where I can't wait to meet my darling little baby!!! So, anyone out there - how long did you have bloody show before giving birth??
