I am borderline freaking out right now. Woke up this morning and had lost a piece of my mucous plug and there was blood in it. I'm only 36 weeks today, so I was definitely not prepared to see that yet.
I do have an appt. today with my high risk doc, so I will mention it to her. As much as I wanted baby to come a little early, I'm hoping she cooks for at least another week! Does anyone know if GD can cause preterm labor? I've had a lot of BH over the last month, but nothing painful, only uncomfortable.
Thank you peimum for my awesome siggy!

I have GD and from what I have read it does not cause preterm, and my dr never mentioned it either. Good thing you have a dr appointment today so you can mention and see what's going on Are you having any other signs? KUP!

No other signs yet, but I did sort of overdo it yesterday - too much walking, cleaning, chasing after DS, etc. I was pretty crampy last night. I'm actually feeling quite normal right now (or as normal as can be expected).
With DS, I started losing clumps of plug for about 3 weeks before, but it only had blood in it once, which was the very last piece I remember coming out. I guess the blood just sort of freaked me out this morning.
What's funny is the first thing I thought was, "OMG, we haven't picked a name for DD yet!!" I guess my priorities are a little off right now. lol.
I'm not sure but I'm with the other girls in thinking this could be a sign that labor will start soon, or your body may just begin preparing but things may not happen for several more weeks. That's what's so hard with this anticipation is we just don't know.
On your side note, I'm excited to hear what name you choose. Graham was on our short list this time (and we almost used it but we didn't want to start a "G" theme), so I like your taste.
Well, just got back from the high risk doc, and just as expected, she said that the bloody show could mean imminent labor or it could mean a few more weeks. Very exact, right? lol
I have my regular OB appt. on Thursday, and I'm having the GBS test and getting my cervix check, so I'm curious to see where I'm at. Although, with DS, I was 3-4 CM for a few weeks before, so I know it really doesn't mean anything.
On another note, my doc is okay with me not starting any oral meds or insulin for my GD. She thinks it's still manageable with diet right now, since my numbers aren't super high, only a little above target. She just wants me to add more protein and keep lowering my carbs, which I've already started doing. Baby is measuring right on track, though - about 6 lbs. 1 oz. So, yay for a good appt!
I'm glad you don't have to start any meds for the GD. Yay for that! And of course you get no inkling of when you might go into labor, lol. Isn't that how it goes? No one can predict it! The suspense is terrible! haha.
