Okay, so I had lunch with my mom today, who is planning a couple of out-of-town trips soon. She's going out of town this weekend and she knows I've been having peaceful dreams about delivering in the 34th week and she was curious what my "symptoms" are right now. :rolleyes: In each of my dreams it's always the same thing, I'm somewhere in 34 weeks, baby comes peacefully, painlessly, and with no complications. Some times I deliver and home (despite knowing it was coming) and I call the doc after I'm holding my baby, some times I deliver in the hospital after waiting until the last possible moment to go in, and sometimes I go in with enough time for them to transfer me (our hospital won't deliver at 34 weeks) but there is no stopping it, I am happy, and we deliver without being transferred (for whatever reason).
So my mom asked me if my body is prepping itself for labor yet. I told her that I lost parts, if not all, of my mucous plug and she just about choked on her food! :eek: She says "Did you call your doctor? When do you see her next?? You know you're not supposed to take baths or have sex after you lose the plug......." She just starts flipping on me! She told me that I need to call my doc to see if they wanna check me before my appointment next Friday (22nd). Then I told her it happened at the beginning of last week over a couple of days time and I swear I thought she was gonna faint. "Your doctor NEEDS to know you've lost it"
Okay, so I know she's over-reacting just a tad, but what do you guys think? The plug was lost over a couple of days, it was not brown or bloody, I've had no spotting or bleeding of any kind, and there's nothing in my discharge that makes me think I'm leaking amniotic fluid. Should I call my doctor? Is sex still safe? I know it can regenerate....
I do have other possible early labor signs, but none are definitive and I know that even with these "symptoms" labor could still be weeks off. *sigh*
