    Losing mucus plug and contractions all day sunday

    So I have had contractions all day yesterday and many today. I started to lose my mucus plug yesterday and more today. My belly feels so weird right now. It is so hard, even when I am not having a contraction. I can't even walk sometimes. I am so ready to have the baby. Very nervous though. This will be a vbac and I really don't know what to expect.Once I go into labor, they will determine if I can have the vbac. The dr said if my cervix is high and I am not soft, he wants me to have a csection. But if the baby is low and I am soft, I can try. Dh works an hr away and really needs to be a work today. He is training new staff and said he needs another day. Of course if I go into labor he will come home. Wish me luck!

    11 days to go!!!!!

    How do you know you are losing your mucus plug? I only remember losing mine with one of my kids. But I think I am losing mine as well. I have had a lot of mucas discharge the last two days. I go to doc on Friday and they will check me for the first time, I am anxious to see if I am dialating. Good luck to you

    From what I have read, it kinda looks like snot (mucus) and it is gooey. I actually googled pictures of a mucus plug and got a few hits. HTH I hope there is some progress for you.

    On Thursday the dr said I was soft and 1 cm dilated, 2 on the outside of my cervix.

    Well that is exactly what mine looks like. So I will find out on Friday if anything is going on. Kind of exciting. I know it can still be a while which is fine with me but it is always nice to know that something is going on down there.

    Good luck! I'm also hoping for a VBAC this Wednesday. Yes, I will be induced. I was dilated to 1.5cm over a week ago and thin (don't know how much) and I have had contractions that are painful and some sporadic back pain. I am extremely uncomfortable! I am itchy, nauseated, exhausted and so ready to have my baby! I lost my MP over a week ago.

    I wish you the best. An easy labor and a successful VBAC. Please send some my way, as well.
    Me(30), DH(40), DD(10), DS(6). Baby 3 due 6/20/10! Can't wait!
