    had a bit of increased discharge today, but went to the toilet an hour ago and it was a lot more, quite liquidy but also stringy when i wipe with pink tinge and few spots of blood in there, it was pink tinge on tissue but quite red spots when i wiped-is this ok?. no more blood half an hour later, but still guey. think it could be my plug. also got a few period pains in my back and slightly at the bottom of my bump.

    i know it could stay like this for ages but with 2 days until my due date i'm feeling very excited and letting myself think this could be it :happydance:

    Aargh! Yes contractions have hit, started about an hour after plug. 5mins apart from the off mainly in my back. Now moved a little to the front and closer to 4mins apart. Cmpletely unprepared for how strong and close together they are :wacko:
    Paracetamol hasn't worked, warm bath didn't slow them but eased the pain a little when I could get comfy enough.
    Called the hospital as I'm supposed to be having a home birth, but they said they don't have the staff available tonight, really annoyed and it's thrown everything I planned out the window. :cry:
    Hubby gone for a lie down on the sofa, he really needs it but not sure how long I can cope solo. Got tens machine on now, quite effective but not sure what setting I should be on at this stage.

    I might be a weakling but they are hurting way more than I thought they would. I have to stand up and walk a round a bit and i'm being quite vocal!
    I'm on tens setting 5, if I get to setting 10 I'm heading to hospital.
    Going to try my hypnobirthing cd an see if it calms me down any.

    Update: lasted from 10pm to 8am, called the hospital who don't have the staff for a home birth, so we went in. 3cm, bulging waters but cervix still quite thick.
    She gave me a sweep and cocodamol and we are now back home. Had loads of contractions after the sweep, every minute on the way to the car! Settled back to every 3-4mins now.
    The labour ward was chocker, gutted not to be having a home birth, so much mote comfy at home, contractions in the car are horrible, I need to stand up.
    Getting very tired as I can only sit upright, leaning or lying down is so painful.
    Can feel an epidural coming on later :nope:
