Some mucus or something would really brighten my day. I checked my cervix this morning and it feels a little different than it did but I cant quite figure out how. Contractions every day but thats really it. I am not even 38 weeks yet but still. I feel like I have already put extra time into pregnancy since DD went to 42 weeks

Anyone else obsessively checking the toilet paper waiting for some action?

Definately. I had lots of mucus yesterday and ctx that tightened around my back and today nothing. But I am wondering if that is related to the runny noses we all have making things stop. I am due Friday but went a week late with my dd. So I would definately like to see something more going on lol.

Yup, obsessive tp checker here!!
I've had a few bouts of crampiness, but that's it...nothin' to write home about, that's for sure...

yep me too. My due date was yesterday and I'm desperately waiting for anything exciting to happen. I've been having very irregular ctx for about a week and some days I get really crampy, but it never lasts. And boy, some mucous would really make my day. I've only seen a tiny tiny little bit about a week ago. things really arent progressing very fast. I have an apt tuesday and would love to find out that all of these ctx have been doing something.anything. I won't be surprised if I go to 42 weeks. but I'm really hoping something starts happening. it certainly doesn't look like I'm getting the easter baby I'd hoped for.

watching and waiting here. I have been having contractions on and off since Friday, hadn't had any at all before then. They will be 5 min apart for a little bit and then stop. I know I am not going to believe when I actually do in to labor.

I always check the tp! Last week I started being Super Snotty Pants.

I've been having contractions all day - nice and strong, lasting over a minute each. Except only a couple an hour.

As of two Wed ago, I was 3cm and I see my mw tomorrow. I don't care to get checked but my dh is curious. With my third I went in to be induced at 6cm, and still not in labor - I think he wants to see if I actually fully dilate before going into full blown labor! So I might get checked, I don't know. I try checking myself but never felt anything that was like "So that's my cervix!" and plus, I think the positioning I need to get into to even try makes me feel queasy...otherwise I might try harder.

Oh ya- I'd love to see some blood! I'm losing tons of mucus all the time, and the contrax, and the bh, and the pooping, and everything- but give me some blood! Or I'll take amniotic fluid as well! Or even some bloody mucus!
I'm not even overdue yet!

How about lots of mucus, some bloody show, followed by 24 hours of contractions regularly 15 min apart and longer than 45 sec? On top of that I was up all night with diarehea and vomiting, still nothing. My MW was even here and it seemed it was going to turn to full labor...I'm only 5 days overdue, which means still on time, but the waiting and back and forth is no fun.

OMG, I almost spit out my coffee!!!

I had lots of mucous this morning, so I'm thinking my mucous plug is starting to deteriorate as I was pretty dry before that (like no discharge dry, which is kinda strange when I stop to think about it). No cx for a few days though, just poopy (as usual) and lots of BH.... Liam might get his cast wednesday, so anytime after that is gonna be ok...

Playing the waiting game here too. I was 39 weeks yesterday and I'd really just rather get it all over and done with. Not even a skerrick of mucus from here, though. Having a few bouts of BH, but nothing to get me even remotely excited.
