I feel like crap! TMI warning

Posted by on Apr. 10, 2013 at 11:28 AM

Last Tuesday, I had a pink discharge not caused by a cervical exam or sex (neither of which I had had). I called my doctor and she said not to be concerned..that this was a sign of my cervix softening. Since then, I have had bouts of painful BH over the past few days ( I am assuming that they are BH because they are inconsistent), occassional back pain, and occasional nausea. I have also (TMI) been having bowel movements more often, some of them which are almost soft to the point where they are diaherra like. I should also mention that I think I'm losing my mucus plug little by little. When I wipe, I'll have an occasional tissue that has what looks almost like someone with a cold (sorry, that 's the only way I can think to describe it ) sneezed on. I'm not too excited about that because I know mucus plugs can rengenerate.

When I woke up today, I felt like crap! My throat and ears hurt, I'm nauseous, and I feel dull pain/pressure on the outside of my vagina.


What's wrong with me?!

I'm sure you aren't a whale. But it sounds a lot like I went through the week before I popped

You're pregnant :) Drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. I only lost my mucus plug with my youngest 3 days before she was born and not at all with my first. And I never had BH, I was lucky. But my sister had all of what you describe with both of her kids and it lasted for weeks. I think she was in the l&D once a week for the last month of her pregnancy with her son lol.

Haha, Tristan,I'm trying to avoid being that girl! I don't want to go in too often, because when the time does come, I don't want for the hospital to think I'm overreacting again.

Definitely sounds like you're very close.  Drink plenty of fluids though to stay hydrated and keep us updated.

You are getting very close to having a baby.  :)  How exciting!

I should also add that if I had all of those symptoms at only 30 weeks I would definitely go in and get it checked out but that is just me.
