I've been nauseous for the past 2 days and I am very crampy around my lower back and belly today. I think I'm starting to lose my mucous plug, too. You'd think I'd know since this is my 2nd pregnancy, hey? Ha ha. It's a whole new thing every time.

So, I'll pay attention to my body today and let you all know if any more stuff starts happening. Fingers crossed. I really do want to get this little guy out. My PUPPP rash is absolutely out of control itchy and I'm eager to meet him!

Sounds promising! If it is labor, send me some of those vibes!

When was your ds born? Was he a little early, too?

I'm due on the 4th too and I'm experiencing the same thing, and it's been going on since Wednesday! Every day it gets more intense, and I've started having contractions 10-15 minutes apart the last three evenings. I hope it goes somewhere soon because I'm starting to feel worn out.

I've been having white cervical mucus, some of it came out in a little clump. Can that have anything to do with the mp?

I hope this is it or you beachcomber.... keep us posted:

Kate, that's like what I had today with my CM. Fingers crossed, hey.

Deb, DD was born exactly on her due date. She was induced but I'd been having early labor for about 3 days prior to that. I finally got induced b/c my membranes had ruptured, my white cell count rose and I developed a fever. I'm hoping that things will be a bit more "normal" this time.

Yah, Sherri, the PUPP has been driving me crazy for most of the last month. I first started getting it in January and back then it was just a little patch on one shoulder. Now it's EVERYWHERE!!

Good news, everyone! I lost my mucous plug this morning. Rather suddenly, too. It was a bit surprising. Heh. And I'm feeling crampy right now.
