I lost a glob of mucous plug yesterday afternoon, which was followed by a definite uptick in the BH contractions. Not much longer...I go back to the OB today to have the amniotic fluid levels and everything else checked. I'm 36 weeks today. Between the plug, BHs, and the fact that all of our pets are acting completely wacky around me, I'm thinking that it could be any day now.

How exciting! I lost my mucous plug at 35 weeks with my son and had him a week later. I'll be curious to see when your little bundle arrives!

How exciting! I can't wait for the next few weeks to go by so that I can go from being apprehensive about going into labor too soon, to being excited about it when it happens!

Cute.<br><br>
No, I know what it is. I posted about losing part of my mucus plug not long ago. I was just oggling at the TOTALLY different reactions.<br><br>
Hence the <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><br><br>
ETA: Maybe because it was so early. *shrug*

I think that was it -- you seemed concerned that it might be your mucus plug (and were only 34 weeks), so people were reassuring you that it could regenerate/wasn't a definite sign of impending labor/etc. This OP seems excited about the possibility of going into labor soon, so people are giving her a "woo-hoo." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I know ... I'm only 34 weeks right now, and although of course I want the baby to hang out in there for at least another 3-4 weeks, I have to admit that whenever I think I feel something going on I get kind of excited. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Darn late-April due date!!<br><br>
Oh, and here's a belated WOO-HOO!! for you too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

You're definitely heading in the right direction! Don't stop being excited, for sure more will come out and you'll have other "impending labor" signs piling up and then you'll be really psyched! I think once we're all in that "safe" zone of 36+ weeks we'll be more encouraging for our babies to come out. But a lot of us aren't there yet, kwim?
