Is this it?

Whoo hoo, I lost my mucous plug today. It hasnt been exactly like I expected, as it has been expelling gradually over the last few hours. It was similar in consistency to the very sticky cervical fluid that monthly was an indicator of when I was ovulating.

On top of that, this morning I started having contractions shortly thereafter, and that was at about 8:30am. They have been consistent through out the day. I will keep you posted as they continue and let you know if they stop. So far they are about 30 seconds long and 3 minutes apart. They are manageable, although uncomfortable. My lower back is sore, but my spirits are high!

More details later, and as they come!

I won't tell you when I lost my mucous plug and how long it was before I went into labor (and for how long I had contractions) ;) But, for most people losing their mucous plug is a sign that labor is right around the corner. Good luck!!!! I'll be sending easy birth thoughts your way!
