    Had yet another visit to hospital yesterday after getting strong contractions and lower back contractions and cramping for 5 hrs. When i arrived at hospital they stopped the mw decided to do an internal and i was 2cm dilated, after 5 hrs of been in hospital they decided to send me home.

    This morning goes to toilet for a pee and when i wiped the toilet paper was covered in mucus after wiping 3 times with toilet paper it was still covered it finaly cleared after 4th wipe. I seem fine today all my aches/pains have gone :wacko:

    Has anyone else had this? If so how long was it before baby came?
    did you go on a few more weeks before labour?
    Or did nothing happen?

    Did labour just start out of the blue like?

    I had mucus plug with amber but nowhere as much as i have had in this pregnancy, so i was expecting her to arrive bit earlier but nope.

    Stubborn lil things haha

    Yeah started out of the blue no mucus plug, waters still in contact so no real signs other than the contractions and cramping. The mw at hospital said i could go anything from 1hr - 2 wks now. When i spoke to mum this morning she said when her plug went that was it for her and with no time she had her babys, i still feel ok and lo is moving as normal.
