Nothing too excited to tell, I also had an ultrasound, the baby is about 4 lbs, the baby's head is measuring 34wks-not sure what this means, everything looks good.
On Monday I start with NST twice a week. I know many of you had to do it, how long are they, I thought they told it was 1hr long, but seems way to long for me.
Also, for those of you that have lost your Muscus Plug, what does it look like? I had some discharge yesterday, never seen before, lots of mucus and it seems like it had a hint of color to it, but I am not sure.

NST monitoring is an hour however it can take up to 1.5 hours if the office or hospital is busy. I know mine were never less than 1.5 hours since it was done at the hospital and never fails someone delivers as I'm sitting there. They will just have you hit the button with every kick so you can't cheat and use it as computer time though they usually allow you to watch tv.

The plug usually has blood with it (thus the other name which is bloody show in some parts of the world). I found it more like tissue than mucus. Though it's loose like mucus than blood tissue. Make sense?

Also I was told even if you lose it and don't go into labor, it will grow back. I think I lost 6 of them with my 2nd child (2 weeks late). Each time, it got more bloodier. (sorry if TMI).

Thank you for the information, I had no idea. The mucus happened hrs after I got back from the doctor's office, so I thought I would wait and see. I haven't had any more since yesterday afternoon.

If your doctor checked how dilated you are, that can "knock" some of your plug loose. I've always thought it looks like snot. It's globby and more solid than normal CM. It doesn't have to be red tinged--for me having red in it is a sign that I'm actually in labor (I don't dilate until labor starts properly and I've heard the red is from blood vessels that burst as you dilate).

I had that happen after a check. It's usually nothing. 33 weeks seems early to check dilation though. My NST with my second were at least an hour. And that was when he cooperated LOL.

I did not get checked on my appointment. It seems like the norm for a NST is an hr, I will have to bring a good book or take a nap

He loves giving my belly kisses, which is very adorable. He seems to be getting more and more into the idea of a baby. He has gone from not linking babies to now only liking babies
How are you doing? Your boys are getting so big!
