I thought I may have been leaking yesterday and having contractions every 20 min since that last post about kick counts. Sat I went to the hospital to be checked. It was not my fluid leaking just lots of CM/plug, and my cervix is "floppy and open" not sure what that means in terms of % of effacement and dilation but that is what he said. They kept me for 2 hours and then sent me home.
Today they are getting stronger but still at 20 min apart. We has sex last night and today and so far no changes. I plan on going for a walk this afternoon to see if I can get things moving. Right now I am just having a headache so I don't feel like doing much of anything. The good news is Bill did make it to NY after I went to the hospital yesterday so it was a nice "trial run" as much as I would love for it to be over. I'll be 39 weeks on Monday.
I can't keep anything down toaday. I have vomited 3 times and the last one endded in a nose bleed, so that just has me feeling tired. Contractions are about 30 min apart and lasting 70 sec so nothing huge going on with that.... It did take me 3 hours (2 hours 52 min) to get to 10 with the kick count on the baby. I lost about a shots glass of plug today (not sure why it was green) but I hope it is a sign something will happen by the end of the week. I am 39 weeks today and we go to our reg OB visit at 3pm.
ETA: Taken together with the low kick count and vomiting, I'm very worried. If it were me, I would head to L&D.

Join the revolution & take back our holidays!
Change Black Friday into Buy Nothing Day, and don't take your credit cards to work on Cyber Monday.
Shift Your Shopping from mass marketers & big box stores to your local independent retailers & small artisans.
Practice a Buy Nothing Christmas. Instead of buying more things, give gifts of your time, your energy, and maybe even some unwanted things around your home; organize a used items gift swap among your family and/or friends.
My appt is at 3pm.
39 week visit
Bill was able to make it with me He worked about 20 min's away today and got out about 10min before the visit and was able to make it, just before the OB walked in. LOL when the OB walked in he said to me "What you think you needed to bring pertection today?" Bill had not changed.
Still no swelling
178lbs so that is up 2lbs since last week
My hart rate was 104 but pounding.
I was told to go home and up my feet up.
As far as the vomiting he said if it last more then 2 days to come back, but at this point it is just hormones and my body clearing out. Call in the am if I have issues with fluids also. He also told me eat things with salt and drink soda.
I also told him about the slower kick counts.
After looking at the baby on US, Head is down, hart looks good, fluid pockets normal.
Knowing I am 39 weeks, and that I have lost my plug he said I could go anytime, but that the baby is small so if he stays in a few weeks they will be fine too.
He was not worried about the color of the plug and said "Mother nature just dose some funny things, but if you start having a temp give them a call" He is not 100% sure it has anything to do with me being ready to have the baby as much as it would be from my cervix being messed with in the L&D on Sat that made it let go. I am not smelling anything funny or having any itching that would make us think that I am having any kind of an infection.
I told him about my anxiody with Bill being so far away and Bill then told the OB what he tells me all the time "I'm going to make it, all I need is 3 hours heads up" The Dr then told us a story of a husband who was in Arazona and his wife went into labor and after geting 3 flights on the fly he walked in the door and as soon as he did she pushed out the baby in 2 pushes. That my body is amazing and he has seen babies wait more then once for Dad's to make it to the room, because if that is the last thing that will let you let go and feel safe your body won't let your have a baby if your not feeling safe.
I was craving Wendy's fries on the way home and so I got some and a coke and so far it is staying down.
