Just a warning...this post is gonna be TMI!
So, I am picking up my Big D from the hospital today (FINALLY) so I was puttering around the house eating breakfast etc., basically trying to kill time but still relax my tired body (which is hard to do when you're feeling antsy!) when I suddenly had a HUGE nesting instinct kick in.
I started washing dishes and then dusting and vacuuming the living room, but had to stop when I realized I needed to pee.
Ok, here is where the TMI part comes in for those who don't want to read it. Heh.
Before I sat down on the toilet I noticed a little something floating in the toilet (and not to be gross but I hadn't had a bowel movement since yesterday, just been peeing nonstop all night and morning, so I know it wasn't that) so I just shrugged and sat down to pee. When I wiped and looked down at the toilet paper, it was definitely more than just pee on it! It was tinted a very light, light brown with some little spots here and there of mucus. Not a lot, mind you, but enough to make me take notice that's for sure! And almost immediately after that I started having some gentle (not painful) low belly cramps, almost period-like, followed by instant diarrhea.
Could this be the start of losing my mucus plug? Do you think this could be the beginning of early labor? Is this wishful thinking on my part?
Like I said in my last post, at my internal exam on Thursday my doctor told me I was 80% effaced, 1cm dilated, she literally tapped on the baby's head and she did strip my membranes. I have an induction scheduled for Tuesday but now I'm wondering/hoping I go into labor on my own!
Of course I called Daryl just to give him a heads-up and make sure he tells someone there that he needs to be discharged SOONER rather than later. Well of course the nurses went to tell the doctor and he is a total asshole who doesn't like to do what others tell him, so he told the nurses he was too busy right now with other patients and that he'd stop by Daryl's room later. He said he'd be discharged by noon. Daryl is pissed, his poor, sweet nurses are pissed at the doctor, and and here I am at home still vacuuming. LOL
So I'm pacing, pacing, pacing, feeling anxious now (still nothing other than low belly cramps which is good)...heh heh...I know I probably still have tons of time but I'd feel much more relieved having Big D HOME with me while these changes start happening, ya know? It's disconcerting enough to not know what is happening but when it happens when you are completely alone, it SUCKS! And of course my Mom is LITERALLY in the middle of moving into her new apartment right now with a rented U-Haul so she can't even come over and visit me. I think I'll just go take a shower and then maybe lay down for a while and watch tv. The dog is watching me pace and HE is all anxious, crying and pacing. We make a good pair. Ha ha!
Anyway, fingers crossed everyone, how perfect would it be for my body to get this ball really rolling on it's own this weekend??? :-) Hunter could be here even sooner than we thought, if that is the case!
