Caution: Gross Pregnancy Info Ahead

I think I lost part of my mucus plug tonight! That means that the baby WILL eventually come out right? Of course, I went right to my birthing books and magazines and it said it could be a couple of days...or quite a few weeks. Is that really all that helpful to know? It better happen in a few weeks...I am at 35 weeks now:) I had a few painful contractions today that got me excited. Though, I am not even full term yet, right? So I shouldn't be too excited. I just need something to get excited about today, so the mucus plug is it! And for those of you that are curious...I am doing the natural thing. Geo will be right by my side and I think that together, it can happen. Bring it on!!

You can do it! Lincoln was the best coach I could have had, we're both lucky to have hubby's who can do it. Nice new look to the blog by the way.

Hey blog facelift! I like it. Congratulations on something exciting happening--it's the first step. I hope your baby will be soon here! Can't wait to hear how everything goes au natural--I'm sure George will be the greatest comfort.

I like to watch you sign! I'm sure that the winans sp? much appreciate any attempt for them to better understand, they are such nice, dear people. I wish that I could communicate with them more. I think I need to attend your signing classes.

Keep us posted on news of the little one.

Well I lost my plug about a week before Kenny came along. So it really can be anytime, also congrats on progress. Now my Respiratory hat comes on,that baby needs to stay in a little longer just for lung development 36 to 37 weeks is optimal for good lung funtion that is according to my neonate class that I am currently taking and just to put your mind at ease your in Fort Wayne and they have awesome nicu's there...not that you'll need that but just so you know. Plus lots of babies are born even earlier than that and need no extra help... we just had three in our ward born at 34 weeks or less and and are all home and doing great. Sorry if I scared you.

Yes the baby will be here soon. Just use this extra time to get the last min. things done like taking pictures of the other kids. Cause when that new baby comes the camera will be on her. Ask the Doctor to strip the mambranes. Didnt work for me but it did work for my sister in law and she was in the hospital less that 24 hours later having a baby.

Yay! Getting excited about any little thing at this stage is a good thing.

My sure-fire way of having the baby come: pack my bag. Oh wait. I didn't do that until I realized I was in labor each time.

Childbirth is so weird. ;) Good luck. You'll do great au naturale! If anyone can do it, its you.

Hey, congrats on the mucous plug! I always think that's a good sign, even though it was weeks with Will (sorry) I've never lost one that early though...
