BMBHONEE - January 6

Okay, so yesterday I lost gloups of my mucous plug, im not sure if I've lost the whole thing or not, but Ive been loosing lots of it gradually, and then today when I was doing nipple stimulation with my br___t pump to maybe bring on contractions.. I started to get milk, the premilk kind, which I haven't had all week.... I've been having horrible back pain for the last 2 days.. could I be going into labor within the next few days... or is it still weeks away????

Just curious... how far along are you now?? I've been losing my mucous plug for some time now gradually too. But sounds like your chances are pretty good!! Hopefully you'll just go sooner than me!

well im only 37 weeks, but I am fine to go into labor anytime according to my doctor due to the fact that I went into preterm labor at 33 weeks, and had to have it stopped, and since then my baby's body has just kicked into overdrive, and is fully developed and she said that he is already average size, so the longer I hold him in.. the bigger he'll be, which I don't want, b/c if he's too big I'll end up having a c-section and that is a hugeee nooooo to me.. lol. I want to have a v____al birth.. period.. and im ready as ever.. and the back pain just seems to be getting worse and worse...=(

hi BMB! wow.....sounds to me like you are well on your way. if memory serves me ( my son is 13) my mucus plug started coming out a day or so before labor. also....remember, women can have back labor, and with your plug coming out, preterm labor etc., i would at the very least call your Dr. and tell him/her about the back pain. Especially since the pain is getting worse. And remember.....dont forget to breathe!!!! good luck!

well im still loosing pieces of my mocous plug and the back pain is still here, but I finally got some sleep last night, thank the lord for that, Im gonna go into my doctors today and see if there is anything they can do, maybe check me and see if Im dialated anymore, b/c I was at 1 cm last week.... so maybe I'm more now, and Its just stuck.. cause the back pain has been like this for the last few days, where as when I went into preterm labor last time, I was in the hospital the day the back pain started with horrible contractions.. there was like no warning they just automatically started 5 minutes apart.. it was scary.. but now that I've been somewhat prepared, after that happened, im not as scared for my actual labor anymore.. WISH ME LUCK! maybe I'll have my baby soon!

well just to update the two of you that have been talking to me on here, I went into the doc today, to find out if anything has changed, but Im still only 2 centimeters.. UGH!! I was soooo hoping for more, Im soo ready to have him, cause get this.. the doc had to check me right and see how far the baby is dropped, and she was telling me how usually its like shes having to stuggle to get up far enough to get to his head.. NOPE.. his head was like right there .. all the way dropped.. Im just not dialating, and Im almost completly thinned out.. I have so much pressure on my pelvis I could cry... Im hoping that if I go in to my appt on friday that I'll be dialated more, or maybe they will just finally agree to induce me, cause I've just been miserable.. =/

well hang in there BMB...i am sorry you are so uncomfortable, but remember that all of the other things that are happening are indications that labor is imminent. and WALK!!!!!! i swear i went in to labor on my due date w my son because my mom would not let me sit all day long ( i had castor oil too :) ) if nothing happens before friday, then tell your doc that its too much, its inhumane to make you suffer. i am so excited for you!!!!!

 

BMBHONEE - January 7

yea I walked 3 times yesterday... and twice today, and I've just been trying to keep myself busy but im running out of things to do.. hahaha, but I've also tried the castor oil thing.. twice, and the only thing it did was give me a little bit of gas.. I didn't have any horrible bm or anything like that.. and then today my dr was like do not try it, because they will not deliver you if you're having direhea.. hahahaha. I just feel like its taking foreverrrr!!!!!!!!! I'm about to take me a nice hot bath and try to relax, and read a good book.. lol.. Im soo ready tho! can't wait to see my baby!

your doctor is funny...lots of women get diarrhea when they go in to labor! i think that a bath will do you good. use this time to rest and relax the best you can as it will be the last time for a lot of years!!!! good night!

 

BMBHONEE - January 8

yea, the bath really was nice!! I thought my doc was funny for saying that too, cause whenever I went into the preterm labor, I had the whole direhea thing and throwing up.. it was awfull, and I just thought it was hilarious that she said they wouldn't deliver me, I mean cause what are they gonna do send me home to deliver the baby myself.. haha. Anways.. Im gonna walk around the basketball gym at the college here and do lots of steps.. haha.. maybe that will get things going.. if not, my hubby gets home from deployment on thursday, so there is always s_x.. haha.

BMBHONEE - January 8

I went and walked and did tons of stairs today.. haha.. but still nothing.. so maybe he really is just waiting for his daddy.. =)
