Yesterday I lost my mucous plug. This morning at 2am I woke up to go to the batheroom and had a bloody show (I think...) and I've been having contractions ever since. They haven't been real regular, 10 minutes apart here...5 minutes apart there....back to 10 minutes.
I've been reading my What to expect book, and it tells me that if I had a bloody show, labor could be days away, but would I still be having these contractions? And it also said that it could be caused by an internal exam within 48 hours, and I had one yesterday. The contractons are in my lower abdomen, like a period cramp. (Let me tell you, I certainly haven't missed having cramps! LOL)
Should I call the doctor, even though my contractions aren't regular? Also, I have TONS of things to do, if this baby is really coming, is it ok to go out and run errands or should I stay at home in bed?
