Plug!!

So, I lost a whole bunch of plug this morning! It had a streak of reddish pink in it, too! Then, about an hour or so later, I lost another big bunch of it with the same kind of streak. Aside from a little crampy/achy, I feel totally normal. I wish losing the plug meant SOMETHING! I know at this point it could be tonight, or it could be next week!

Hopefully it at least means I'm moving in the right direction! Smile

Hey- its something!!! And I would sat the plug + bloody show is an indication of more like 12-24 hours than days or weeks!!

I've heard that if your plug has the bright color in it then it's a good bet to say 1-2 days. Smile excitinggg.

I guess we'll see what happens! I was kind of expecting to see my 39 week appointment on Thursday, but maybe I am wrong! With DS, I lost my plug 4 days before labor started. That would put me right at 39 weeks if that's the case again. But, with the show in it (although, could that be from the spotting I had last Thurs from my check?), who knows! I wish it meant a definite time. The anticipation is killer!

YAY! Sounds like you're on your way! If it's red/pink blood, I think that's pretty fresh. If it was from your check last week, it would probably be brownish by now... keep us updated!

Good for you! I'm beyond jealous at 40.5 weeks. No one on here has gone this long, right?

Hooray! And of course it means something...it means you'll be going into labor soon. Maybe not tonight, but soon! I think it means nothing if you haven't lost plug yet. I went into labor with DS and never saw the tiniest bit of plug beforehand, it all just came out when my water broke mid-labor. But the plug doesn't come out unless the baby comes out, and I'm pretty sure dilation is what causes the plug to loosen? So, you are definitely getting close!
