I've always had to have help with my labors, they've always stalled. So this is new to me. I've been contracting for weeks, but since Thursday they have changed a bit, Thursday being very close, but not strong enough to worry about. Then yesterday stronger, but not close or regular. Then last night I had waves of back pain and still some contractions, but the back pain was way stronger than the contractions. Today I've had them still throughout the day, but none that stopped my talking (last nights did) and none regular, just strong enough to notice them. Oh, and my mw mentioned a couple weeks ago that I had already lost most my plug if that matters.

But here's the weird part. Twice I've noticed something on my panty liner. Not bright enough to say for sure it's blood. But it is a color, kinda looks like dried blood, maybe. I've seen nothing wiping. I tried asking dh, but well, honestly, what would he know?

Is this another sign? Not that I'm gonna be running off anywhere or anything if so, I mean at this point, I'm not going anywhere until I know they can't send me back home lol, I don't want another stalled / augmented labor, so I want to be sure before leaving. But I'd love to know if this does sound promising. I could use any encouragement, since we've had a really crappy day around here.

Hate to be a downer but I had something similar for a week before going into labor. You can lose your mucus plug and then a week later start losing it again. nak

I knew it wasn't to exciting But I guess after 3 labors of weeks of contractions and no dialation, the idea of something, anything, else happening is pretty exciting

I'll keep hanging in here till she finally decides to show up. Definately a lady who knows what, errr when, she wants
