it's really hard to say by that description- often, our discharge really picks up in the last few weeks, and it has nothing to do with losing plug.

but you never know!!!

are you feeling "normal," otherwise?

No I've been feeling off for over a week now. I'm also on Full Pelvic rest (no sex) because hes so low and I have a history of preterm. I bought a bottle of wine tonight to try to stay relaxed

hmmm... well, maybe you're the lucky mama to go next! you'll have to keep us all posted. i know sometimes it feels weird to talk descriptively about stuff like discharge and mucous plugs, but we're all very interested in how everyone is doing, so feel free to share!

enjoy that wine. i'm jealous!

he has to wait at least 2 more weeks so I can have my homebirth. I'm terrified to go to the hospital. Its hard to slow down when I'm nesting SO bad!

I have had increased discharge (leukhorria) this past week. Sometimes it has me running to the bathroom to make sure it's not anything more "sinister." But as a pp said, leukhorria tends to pick up in the final weeks, and doesn't necessarily mean you're losing your plug. I know you're nesting, but try to take it easy now and then.

In other news, I'm incredibly jealous of the wine you plan on enjoying. I have been craving wine for weeks and weeks, and it just sounds so lovely! I would probably have some, but my husband would give me looks and question it (not in a disapproving way, really...more in a 'you're going against your own ideals' way).

I also have increased discharge in the last few weeks. It's very different from the mucus plug for me. The plug is more like really thick snot and sticks together, the discharge is usually much more runny for me.

I did lose a bit of my plug last week though.
