so, this has been a pretty interesting weekend pregnancy-wise! be aware--tmi!
on friday morning, i lost some of my mucous plug. i was surprised that it was not bloody at all. it just looked like mucous. i asked my midwife about it and she said that this was normal.
last night, as i was finally drifting off to sleep, i threw up in my mouth. okay, yes, that's gross. my acid reflux is getting worse but i also felt nauseous. i did some internet searching and i guess this is a symptom of labor for some. this morning, i woke up and still felt sick and had no appetite at all. this never happens to me! i'm always hungry and eating!!! i had constant cramping in my lower abdomen and then started having contractions. i decided to lie down in bed and drink fluids, hoping it would stall whatever was happening. it worked. i am still having cramping/contractions now but they are weaker.
so, i feel like things are changing and that the baby may come early? i am almost 38 weeks now.
have any of you had similar episodes? luckily my husband was home today to watch my son while i rested. i won't be so lucky tomorrow if things repeat themselves.
