38 weeks now and so uncomfortable (and a bit miserable)!
Saw the midwife today who confirmed the baby's head is engaged which I am aware of.
I can feel pressure in my pelvis as I bend/walk/get up.
This morning, whilst on the school run, I felt something wet down below and thought my waters were going. I rushed home but it was just discharge (sorry for TMI). It wasn't the jelly type plug everyone talks about but there was quite a bit. Any ideas?

Just the normal yuckiness of pregnancy I would say!

Doesn't sound like it will be long!! Seeing as we're over-sharing, I lost my plug while hiding in a bush, having a pee, on a lovely woodland walk. Labour started the next day. Very exciting. Good luck!! And take the pain relief! smile

Yep. You leave your dignity in the bin with your BFP grin

Could it have been the start of your plug or waters though? It's not always a gush.
Keep an eye on it, and if you get any more, or it has any green or brown in it, go straight in smile

It sounds to me like you had a 'show'. Things will be happening soon!!

Oh..... I have just re-read and seen it was not, in fact, your plug. Never mind. Hope you enjoyed my story.
Lots of discharge means a nice clean 'ahem' environment I think, as long as it doesn't smell awful. Just Mother Nature keeping the exits clean.
