I am 40+2 weeks pregnant with number 2. I have been in hospital the last 2 days with high BP but yesterday it went down and my obs were great so I was discharged (on my request because I refused induction).
Anyway, while in there they did 2 stretch & sweeps, the last one only just last night before I left. Since then, I had a bit of bloody mucus last night. This morning, there was heaps of chunky/stringy bloody mucus. I wiped about 5 times and it was still coming out.
Could this be my plug/show? Do you think that is a good sign that thing are about to happen?
I know you can loose your plug weeks before birth, but I'm over due now anyway. Plus, I lost my plug well into labour with DS who was born at 37 weeks after my waters broke on their own. I didn't actually see it so that's why I am unsure what it looks like, I just remember the mid wives saying there it was.
Anyway, do you think it's a sign things are starting to happen? I'm 2cm already and my cervix is open, the doc said she could break my waters if I wanted. But, I want things to happen on their own so said no. I'm about to get bouncy on the gym ball lol.
