when we went to bed i started haveing BH. and then my lower back started KILLING me. so travis stayed up with me and after about an hour they stopped and i fell asleep.
well this morning when i woke up i was feeling fine like normal and i went to use the restroom and pee like always lol
and when i wiped i knowticed a huge amount of pink discharge comming out? so i looked at my pantyliner and it had pink discharge all on it too. so i went and got travis and his mom and showed her what it looked like. she said she got the exact same thing with travis when she was around 37 weeks and she had it for about 2 weeks before she went into labor
im 35 weeks 1 day and im wondering if anyone else is haveing this going on? or knows what it may be?
Sounds like it could be your mucus plug coming away. It doesn't necessarily mean you'll go into labour any time soon. You're already 2cm dilated though aren't you? If you're losing your plug & getting severe braxton hicks maybe you should call your doctor to make sure everything's ok & you're not dilating even more. That baba's gotta stay in there for at least another 2 weeks!
The pink discharge could very well be your mucous plug coming out if it is kind of jelly-like, or it could be a sign that the actual mucous plug will come out soon. Some people walk around for weeks before giving labor after they lose theres, but some give birth just a day later. Keep in mind that not everyone loses an actual "plug" of mucous, sometimes it just comes out gradually.
My mom lost her mucous plug when she was pregnant with my brother about a week before she went into labor. Take it easy though, Suzy! I can't wait for your little one to be here, though. You better post one heck of a birth story... I've always wanted to do it without an epidural too because I hate needles and I was there when my mom got hers and it scared me to death... so I'm counting on you for advice girl for when my time comes!

Believe me, by the time you're in labour a teensy little needle (you won't even have to see it) is going to be the least of your worries. I gave birth without an epi, but I needed a spinal anaesthetic after the birth of my daughter so they could stitch me up & I couldn't feel the needle at all. Just go with the flow.. you might need one, you might not!
okay lol well im still haveing thick jellylike discharge. so i called my dr and her answering service had her call me right back around 4. she said that it sounds like my mucus plug but that this doesnt mean much because some women dont loose it til the end and some loose it earlier
she did say i shouldnt be haveing more than 4 braxton hicks in an hour and that if they started to get close together or last for more than 20 seconds each to call her asap and she will have me head into st davids and get everything checked out
i have another weekly appt on wednsday so hopefully i wont have anymore BH
but tonight if it starts up again im going to the er
