Ummmmm... *UPDATED*

I woke up at 4.04am feeling like absolute shite, on the verge of tears because - yet again - I'm still pregnant. I lay there for just under an hour, when my bladder definately started to get the better of me. Stupid bladder.

Stumbled off to the loo.

Peed an extraordinary amount of fluid.

Wiped.

No doubt about it. That's a mucous plug. A goopy, gel-like, blood-tinged mucous plug.

I thought I should share.

Monkey Boy is still fast asleep. I cant see much point in waking him.

May this herald good news when we trundle in to the hospital today for the final CTG.


*****************
UPDATE:

The CTG was fine. As always, he's pronounced a happy healthy baby who likes to move alot.

Unfortunately it did not show me having any contractions. Not a one. Depsite the fact that it sure as hell felt to me like I was having them. Consequently, if these are not real contractions, I'm not interested in continuing further with this deal.

It was agreed that "having a show" was a good sign, but that ultimately it didnt mean jack shit about when I would actually start labour. Could be today, could be in two weeks. So we were sent home.

And told to come back in on Tuesday for the induction.

Can I go get drunk now?

  1. Yay, that sounds very promising darls. Hey spudly - hurry up! The world (aka "us") want to see just how spunky you are! Your mum is just going to be the bestest Mum there is - so hurry up so you can get some of that great lovin'.

    I will continue to be glued to the blogsphere awaiting the grand arrival news.

    May everything go smoothly - thinking of you.

  6. Sigh.

    No you can't get drunk. But I'll generously do it for you.

    Not much longer now.

  7. But your water broke, right? That means you're in labor!

    Come to think of it, that might be a US-way of thinking. Which explains why there are so many C-sections.

    May the waters break and the contractions start very soon.

  10. I'd drink for you if I was allowed to have one or several. I plan to start drinking beer when I'm breastfeeding but that is 2.5 months away. Keep us posted! We're cheering you on from Alaska.

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
