mucus plug (tmi) and check up

Since my cervical check last thursday I have been loosing parts of my mucus plug! I thought I started loosing pieces a long while back, but this is totally different and much more like what they describe. Its this thick stuff like booked egg whites but off white, super sticky. Yuck!!! Seems to work its way out during the night.
I know its probably still re generating since I have 8.5 weeks to go.

Had my 31 week check up yesterday. Was quick since the office is still without power. Weight down 2lbs, bp perfect, babies heart rate is high, not sure exact number, was 180ish in hospital.

I have a sono this week to check on fibroid. I'll have the strep test done in 3 weeks, in the meantime I meet with the ob group that will deliver for a routine check up.

Aisley is laying side ways, silly girl. Might have moved to breech though judging by the action I feel on my cervix and bladder Wink

You sure it's your mucus plug? Seems a bit early but anything can happen. Keep her in there alittle longer!!!
I think my LO is sideways too.. I keep getting kicked in the side!

The doctor said losing some of it is no indicator of labor since your body keeps regenerating it, I think its just from the aggressiveness of the cervical check, those hurt!

I hope your LO turns around! At least the rest of your appointment sounds good Smile As for the plug, I think you're good as long as you're not getting bloody show, too.

I never lost my mucus plug with DS or never noticed if I did so I have no clue what to look for. I'm sure it will freak me out if I lose it with this one. The term itself just sounds nasty! LOL!

Yeah, I don't think you could miss it!

She turned at least twice today, ouch! Doc wants to fetal posititon during sono but I don't see the point this early. Lots of time left!

Sounds like a good appt! Hopefully she'll get into the right position and stay there soon.

Glad you had a good appt. Isn't the mucous plug nasty!? I lost mine with DS early too, about 34 weeks. I didn't deliver anytime soon after that :). I hope Aisley turns for you soon, but you're right not to be concerned since it's so early still!
