Lurking from May, but I had similar pain for about a week and got sent home from the hospital twice because I was only 2 cm dilated.

I had a lot of mucus for maybe two weeks, but didn't lose my plug until the day before I delivered. TMI but it's really gross and looks like a big booger, lol. I passed pieces of it a couple of times that day.

Finally, the contractions got so bad I couldn't even think straight, let alone walk or talk (I had back labor). I thought they were bad before, but those didn't compare to the real thing. I cried through them and they were 2.5 minutes a part and lasting 1 minute by the time I decided to go back to the hospital.

When I was finally admitted I was 5cm dilated and 100% effaced and my water broke half an hour later.

Thanks Vicki... for my beautiful siggy!
