Feeling less than perky after sweep

I had a membrane sweep yesterday at 39+3 ( given one early because of fractured rib/no room for baby because I'm so petite/ extreme muscular pain) which was apparently very successful. My midwife could get two fingers into my cervix, feel the baby's head to the point she could tell how much hair she has, it had come forward, was soft and thinning.

I had a little blood loss afterwards and was crampy for the whole of yesterday with moderate back pain. Last night and today, I have been losing a considerable amount of very thick jelly discharge tinged pink which I can only assume is my plug/show, I didn't sleep at all, but I also feel incredibly nauseous ( something I haven't had at all through my pregnancy ) as though I'm about to vomit and my appetite has completely disappeared - is this normal post- sweep stuff going on? Should I take how crap I'm feeling as a good sign?

They all sound like positive signs to me, especially the plug loss. DS was here within 24 hours of my bloody show.

Try and get some rest. I hope the nausea passes. Keep your fluids up.

Sooo exciting! Maybe today is the day! Keep us posted. Any period like aches or pains?
