35 wks and losing plug. yikes

It's my 4th baby. 2 of my previous 3 pregnancies, labor started within 24-48 hrs of losing my plug. I am not ready to have this baby, I mean, I would love to have the baby, but I know this is not a good time for him to come.

I know it can regrow, i know every labor is different. But I can't help but be a little freaked out right now.

It doesn't help that when I went to wal mart earlier, I had 3-4 strong contrax.... labor type contrax, not BH. And I can feel that the baby has moved down. He feels like he is clinking around right against my pubic bone.

thx.

I had a few more contrax. But they calmed down.

I am actually wondering if labor will come earlier this time than ever before (I've never birthed before 39 wks).

I am getting those exciting cervical pains you get towards the end, where your cervix is like, "WHOA NELLY! This kid is gettin' too big in here! CAN'T.....HOLD.....MUCH.....LONGER!!!"

I only had one baby where I was 4 cm for a week before I delivered.

The other 2, I woke up in the middle of the night, lost my plug, I went to an appt the next day, I was dilated to a 3, and had the baby by that night/next day.

So I HOPE I am not a 3 yet! Though I can't reach my cervix to tell.

Today I feel much better. I may have just been over-exerting myself last night or something. I took my 4 y/o DS to get new shoes. Maybe you have to know my 4 y/o DS, but that was quite an adventure.

Did the foot in mouth push the baby down? You did it to yourself!!!

No advice. Just, good luck with whatever happens, and try to lay down and get some rest to slow it down a bit. And pack a bag if you haven't already

Yes. That was more like leg-in-mouth.

Aw, thanks

I can't even wrap my head around packing a bag. I had my last 2 at home. I really REALLY want to have this one at home. (Do you hear me in there baby!? You HAVE to stay in for 2 more weeks!) Of course I will go to the hospital if I go into labor prematurely. But, I desperately don't want to. And I'm kind of a big baby.

I think whatever you prepare for doesn't happen, right? So, if you pack a bag and stick the carseat in the car, then you won't have the baby. If you don't pack a bag and aren't ready the baby will be here in like two hours.

what if.... hypothetically speaking, of course.... a lady was 35 wks pregnant WITHOUT an infant carseat?

uh oh. I'm on so much trouble.

This baby won't come early. Watch. I'll be pregnant till 43.5 wks.

Well, in that scenario, and since you wrote this five mins ago, I will assume the baby is crowning right now.

So, when you are done giving birth, hop on Amazon and order a carseat with two day shipping, delivered to your neighbor or parents if they are nearby, or send your DH to babies r us. You should have one by the time you leave the hospital.
