I thought I might actually be in labor yesterday on my due date. I woke up and had some bloody mucousy discharge. Then contractions starting coming every 10-15 minutes. They were only lasting about 30 seconds, but they were pretty uncomfortable. I let my midwife know...who was of course going off-call last night for a party. She said it sounded like early labor and that she was really bummed she was going to miss the birth. the day went on, things tapered off. I still had contractions, but way to far apart to pay attention to.

Today I had a little brown tinged discharge, but no contractions so far. I was reading about mucous plugs, and got such different info as far as if "bloody show" and loosing your mucous plug are the same thing. Anyone know??

I was definitely ok with not having him yesterday. I really want MY midwife there, so it worked out, tomorrow we are touring a pre-school for DD so, I'm also ok with not going till after that, but then, I"M READY!!
