You'd think since this is my 5th baby I would know the answer to this question!
I woke up this morning to pink toilet paper. I actually slept well last night, and didn't feel any like anything was going on. But its been an hour or so and the pink isn't going away. I still feel relatively normal. No contrax to speak of...just tired and achy like usual.
Problem is, my husband is out of town until the 6th (I'm due the 8th). And it's Halloween, people. HALLOWEEN!!! I'm the room mom for my kids class parties - I'm supposed to be there and deliver my kids costumes, and I want to take them trick-or-treating tonight! I can't have the baby today! How am I going to get someone to take me to the hospital, watch my littler ones (causing them to possibly miss their kids class parties) AND take all 4 of my kids trick or treating. Oh man...
At my appt last week I was dilated 2-3cm, and I lost my plug 6 days ago, so I knew things were starting, but I was really hoping I could hold this kid in until my husband gets a few days off next week.
So, is there any chance that the pink will just go away, or is this really the start? My other labors started within 12 hours of losing my plug, and I never got bloody show until I was obviously in labor and contracting regularly... Of course with my other pregnancies my husband wasn't out of town for 3 whole months, is it possible I'm just over-doing it??
