SO excited to meet our little boy, can't even sleep now gringringringringringrinqgringringringringringringringringringrin

I think i had mine on the friday and then went in about 24 hours later.

Have you got a ball? Sit on your ball woman!!

First time was about a week from losing plug to meeting baby, this time plug went on Sunday and I'm still waiting for labour. Sooooo frustrating!!!

Spent all night telling my fiancé 'this is it, I'm sure I'm having contractions!!!'... Just gas blush it's always just gas

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Off for a long walk and picnic!

I'm also 38 weeks lost my plug last night thought I was getting contractions but went of again sad so im guessing it was just Braxton hicks... never wanted pain so much in my life lol hope it's not long for u x

I was 40+3 when I lost mine. Lost it at 6.30pm, went into early labour 4 hours later and DD was born at 3.40pm the next day. Good luck.

Same as Manc451 both times I'm afraid. Took weeks last time and is the same this time. Hope it is quicker for you OP.

Sorry to sound odd but would anyone mind describing what there mucus plug consisted of/looked like?
I'm 39weeks and had a big mucus amount with a few spots of pink blood 1 week ago, not sure if this was it as I don't remember the plug going with my other 2 dcs.
Thanks.....,,,and good luck all!

I know what you mean jessandalfie, getting excited about back pain and willing it to get worse does seem mad!

Mine was like a great big sneeze! It was on my pad and literally a big blob that had to be scooped out! Gross I know, but you did ask :p mine wasn't tinged with blood though, I expected it to be, midwife said it is generally pink or has bloody streaks, but can be clear too.

I lost my plug at 4:30pm.. waters went at 11:00pm and I'd had ds2 by 8:43am after a very very quick labour!

HannahG315 Wed 26-Feb-14 22:42:11

I'm so jealous of all you ladies! Reckon I'm a while off hmm

I cannot wait to meet our little boy now smile
