Starlah - December 13

i'm 39 weeks now, at my 38 week visit last thursday my midwife checked and said i was a "big 3cm" dilated. Thursday night I started losing my plug, and I'm pretty sure its mostly all gone now. Since then the baby has dropped so far down that when i sit i can actually feel him being pushed up, is it normal for a baby to drop that far without having any other signs of labor? is it possible that my water could be broken and I wouldnt know because his head is blocking my cervix completely? the bits of plug that are still coming out now have this odd smell to them, i wouldnt call it sweet like im told amniotic fluid should be but its not a smell i normally have, or even anything i've smelled before i dont think, could this be because i'm leaking? I called my midwifes office about losing my plug and was told to not worry as it could still be days or weeks, but my family has a history of an estrogen imbalance (we tend to go through all the signs of early labor except contractions/water breaking, but for some reason we just dont have enough estrogen to get the contractions going.) i guess im just worried that my water could be broken and i could be totally ready to deliver and am just not having contractions because of this (i had to be induced with my first at 43wks)

starlah, you'll know when your water has broke, because you will have a water leaking, and eveytime you move or the baby does, some will leak out. When mine was broke, his head corked it a little, but everytime I moved, I felt like I was peeing myself!! If your three cm, it sounds like you are progressing well. especially if your not having contractions-consdier yourself lucky, you'll very well may have a quick labor!! It think what your experiencing is just your plug. Good luck to you!!
