waiting100 - November 1

Hi ladies - I am 39 weeks 6 days pregnant - due this sunday. I am dilated to a 3 and 100% effaced. I have been losing mucous plug for about 2 weeks now....for the past 2 days parts of the plug that are coming out or tinged with blood instead of the brown......I am also leaking amniotic fluid for the past 2-3 seems not to be moving as much at you think I should call and possibly go on to see if everything is ok? The reason I hesitiate is because I have a very sick 18 month old at home with a fever--I have no family near me - and basically I am relying on a few close friends to take care of my baby while I am delivering or even at an appt with hubby.......I hate to leave him when he is so sick. What do you all think I should do? My next dr appt is next Tuesday. ?

waiting100, since you're not just loosing your mucus plug, but also leaking amniotic fluid, you need to call L&D as soon as you can. I understand its not easy with a sick baby at home, but I'd get it checked out. Good luck dear!

I would be in L&D. I know how hard it is with having little ones at home when they are sick but the blood, amniotic fluid and decrease in movement needs to be checked asap.

You need to get checked out, there is a risk of infection to the baby if your losing amniotic fluid. Call your doc to get checked. I am also worried that i wont find anyone to take care of my little bub who will be 13 months when im due.
