Yesterday I was fine with still being pregnant. Today? Not so much. Not that I'm still pregnant, but that I'm not having contractions. I feel like if we were going to have a February baby, I'd be in early labor by now. Bekah was born almost 32 hours after the start of labor, so I feel like time is really running out. Also, since labor started first thing in the morning with her, since it hasn't started yet, today, I feel like we have at least until tomorrow morning to get started, which means he won't be here until at least Thursday. Boo.

Just lost my "mucus plug."

Well, that was gross. And now you can all be grossed out with me.

Suspect it was from all the effort my midwife put into stripping my membranes yesterday, rather from any particular progress, but it's somewhat satisfying anyway. I figured I was losing it in bits and pieces and wasn't going to see a real "plug." I was wrong. That was nasty, LOL!

I kind of feel like if he were going to arrive tomorrow, though, I'd already be having contractions today (based on my labor with Bekah). I've been "expecting" a 2/29 baby ever since I found out my EDD was 2/24, though. I guess we'll see...it's still possible! I'll keep you ladies posted, although - frustratingly - I can't post on here with my Kindle (although I can read updates) - so Mary or Mandy will have to update for me once I go to the hospital...whenever that happens!

I am still rooting for a feb baby for you as well. Exciting about usuing your mucus plug. Atleast its a good sign that things are going somewhere (even if its going slowly). Maybe you will just have a fast delivery once you get into that active labor (one can hope). If you are able to post on FB than I will keep looking there as well . Come on Baby S make your appearance! :0)

I said 2/29 from the day I got your "I'm preggo" text.

With Jack, I lost my mucus plus about an hour before my contractions went to 3 minutes apart. Have hope, my love! IT WILL HAPPEN!

My phone is always on. And I check it throughout the night, just in case you'd sent me a text!

Love you both! I can't wait to hear about him and see photos tomorrow!

Lysana replied to nicram8683's response:
Really discouraged now...couldn't sleep well, and now we have severe storms moving in, with a threat through early afternoon. I expect my body is just going to shut down when that happens, because severe weather terrifies me. Looking likely that little Samuel will be a March baby, after all.

Hi Kelly
This is so exciting!!
Ok when I read the part about you not sleeping well it reminded me how I did not sleep well the night before I went into labor with my 3 yr old DS..I never knew it was early labor keeping me up but I just couldn't seem to get comfortable enough to fall asleep so it was a really long night..
Then the weather part..IDK (it's really just a feeling) but because OF the weather I am thinking it might just happen today..Irony sometimes has a way of making room for itself in everyday life..
And just think of the incredible birth story Samuel would have
I am putting my vote on today..the plug is out so it should start very soon..fingers crossed XX
If you can KUP

Sorry little Samuel isn't cooperating. But the day's far from over! You never know, maybe this time you'll have a quicker labor.

We've got those storms going through here too. Not fun. But hopefully the weather won't be too bad down there.

I think i am going to agree with Vicki. I wonder if this storm (kind of like a tornado--the eye of the storm...he's just waiting in there and when you least suspect it....BAM he wants to come out lol). And if you think about it in a positive way if its planning to rain then you will have a pretty rainbow. Maybe its your lil pumpkin wanting to say hi before lil brother comes. Hugs and best wishes (positive thoughts and labor vibes!).
