Man there was a lot of it! It was like three huge gobs of rubber cement. Nothing else has happened yet, but I wanted you ladies to know.

oooooooooooooooooh cool! I had wanted to lose my plug just because of all the gross stories I've heard about it. Mine didn't come out until I was in active labor. And by then I was too distracted to properly appreciate its grossness.

Here's to happy, healthy, awesome labor vibes, mama!

Yay!!! As long as we're swapping gross stories...with my first my mucous plug didn't come out on toilet paper but plopped onto the floor of the hospital bathroom as I stood up after peeing. Eeeeewwwww...

Even though I haven't been an active poster all along, I remember your story from early on. You have a special place in my heart.

I am beyond excited for you!

Okay ladies...today's the day! I got up about an hour ago to pee and I lost ANOTHER glob of plug. For the love of Pete, no WONDER she hasn't been able to get out - she was blocked in up there pretty good!!! At any rate, I've had four or five contractions since then, which I started timing with the last one. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best to you as your labor progresses!

And yeah, that mucus plug is some nasty looking stuff! But fascinating at the same time...our bodies are so very interesting, aren't they???

Woo hoo!!!!!!!!

When my DD was born this past Sun., I was on the computer e-mailing my sis and Christmas shopping, having cx, haha! Suddenly my water broke-- and my plug came out-- DD was born an hour later.

So, maybe this will go really, really, REALLY fast for you!

I am going to be checking for updates! So excited for you!!!
