Is this it? (w/ pic)

So last night I didn't sleep well at all. I got up to pee and all kinds of pain just rippled through my body. Ech.
On Saturday I found some pink tinged show in my underwear and then this morning I had more of it and diahhrea to boot. Also baby must have been pressing on my cervix because he/she had the hiccups, then would move around and ouch!
Anyway, I'm wondering about the show because I've been using hibiclens because I'm strep B positive and it's a red color... but I do it every other night and the pink show comes up the second morning, not the morning after I do it. I've also been having heavier discharge in general and I know the loose stools can mean labor.
I don't know if this is it or not; I would be surprised because I'm just at 38 weeks and my others waited until 40+ weeks to come. DH is a little nervous because we still need to talk to the midwife about delivery options so we're going to try to meet w/ her today if we can. I feel like so much still needs to be done. I've been pestering DH to get the clothes down from the attic the whole weekend and he hasn't done it yet. It's frustrating to rely on someone else because I really can't do it myself.
Anyway, that was way longer than it needed to be but wanted to update.
Here's a picture from this morning:

Ooo...could be. Maybe when you get to meet with your midwife you could ask her and see what she has to say?
Getting closer mama and you look great!!!!!!!

Wow, that totally sounds like it. I slept horribly last night, kept having to go to the bathroom, gas pains and tons of braxton hicks and movement. Finally had a BM this morning and had a tinge of pink and had a contraction immediately after which they've been going on all morning. I bet your body is gearing up and it will be really really soon for you. Hope you have a good meeting with your midwife this afternoon!

Yay Vicki! I hope baby comes sooner than later!

I hear you on the DH holding you back. We got home from vacation when I was 28 weeks and mentioned getting baby soap to wash clothes. Hubby thinks it's TOO early. So when is a good time? When I can't move? LOL. I'm 31 weeks tomorrow and I did buy baby soap on the weekend. Blum 3 Perhaps I'll start soon. I need to dig through many totes of DDs clothes to find the nb stuff and I can bet he won't be all excited to help with THAT. Blum 3

I'll have to keep stalking this board as I'm so excited for you to meet baby! Do you have names chosen?

Got checked and baby is still pretty high no dialation or softening so sounds like I'm just having painful bh and this baby is following in the footsteps if my others. So I'm not expecting it anytime soon although I know things can happen fast. it does make me believe though that thus labor will be fast. Fingers crossed and I am fine with going to my due date if that is the case! And DH finally got the clothes downfrom the attic. it was an ordeal and there was some cursing involved but we survived.: )

Something was just in the air today. We have 2 ladies that had their babies today and possibly a 3rd. And then so many ladies with strong contrax. I had some strong ones this afternoon. They are gone now too.

Sorry you haven't dilated more. But it doesn't mean a thing. It's great you got stuff down from the attic. Haha about the cursing. Sounds like my DH. You should have heard what went down when he had to put the pack n play together. Glad you both survived.

Elizabeth - my pack and play was put together shortly after the crib. The crib was EASY, but the pack and play was giving hubby problems so.. we opened it and I was like...that's good! LOL The bassinet and the changing table part aren't attached because I could tell DH was getting mad...haha

Things are pretty normal today; not really much going on now, which is perfectly fine with me if it's not helping me any!
Jessica, funny that the crib was easier than the pack in play! Hopefully the bassinet/changing table part isn't too hard. I should probably set up our cosleeper, just in case it gives me problems!
