This could be it!

I woke up at 4 AM to go to the bathroom and experienced "losing my plug" - ie: bloody show. Since then, it's been impossible for me to sleep in and I've been having irregular contractions since. It's now 8 AM and I'm going to shower, but have still been "leaking" some interesting stuff and having contractions off and on, so we're going to call and see what we should do. I know I'm supposed to wait until the contractions are 5 min apart, or so, but as a first time labor girl - I have no idea what my body will do!
Maybe Keifer wanted to show up on Easter to symbolize "new life?". Hmm. She IS an angel girl. I'll keep ya'll posted. Have a happy and blessed Easter Sunday!

5 PM:
The contractions that started out at 8 to 14 minutes apart have diminished to nothing. I've had a few here and there, but nothing like this AM. The discharge question: I talked w/my OB, who happens to be on call until tomorrow at the hospital- and he thinks the discharge is just discharge -even though its yellowish-brownish. My question was that there seemed to be quite a lot of it. But he said unless it's clear and a large amount, or my contractions are 4-5 minutes apart, to just stay home until things get going. *sigh*. My parents raced down here, and so we're all just sitting around, not doing much. LOL. CJ was vacuuming and doing laundry at 7 AM, I was cleaning and dusting at the last second, and then we both crashed and napped for about 3 hours. I'm scheduled to go in tomorrow night anyways, so let's hope Keifer decides to go on her own before tomorrow night, making it a little easier on mommy's body!

I hope for you it is. Anything is possible. You could lose your plug up to 2 weeks before the baby is born..but since you past your due date, I doubt it! :) Good luck! C'mon Keifer!

Michele said...

Since she's a little bit me, do I have the right to order her around, too?

(Well, not this second, give mommy time to make it to the hospital and get drugged....)

You hear me? Don't make me take back my eggy estrogen!!!
