It's 4:00 am & I'm laying here having horrible pains down there. I do feel them in my back but it's mostly down there by her head where, like the muscles in the front of the uterus? Where my pubes are okay lol. Dr stretched my cervix to 4 cm today & told me that would speed things up a bit. I've been cramping all day. And at about 1030 pm I lost my mucus plug. I'm most definite it's my mucus plug because it was very mucusy & thick and came out in a blob. LOL.
So am I in labor!? I just have no idea what real contractions are suppose to feel like. I thought the whole bump was suppose to hurt, very sharp pains? I suppose the pains i feel are sharp, but I would describe them as very tight and uncomfortable squeezing. They are not 5 mins apart yet...maybe 10 to 20 minutes and last about 30 seconds. What do you guys think!?
You can lose your plug days or even weeks before you go into labour. So its not a sign of things starting straight away. However the fact that have had a sweep and got to 4cm must mean things are close now. Keep as active as you can today. Walk a lot. Going up and down stairs sideways is meant to help. bouncing on a ball. Anything that gravity will help to push baby down. Im sure it wont be long. good luck
