I'm starting to get more and more anxious. My doctor and I don't agree about my due date, so in a twist, I think I'm overdue and to them, my due date is still upcoming. Long story, it's mostly my fault about the confusion. So...my mucus plug (non-bloody) comes out all at once this morning, and I'm finally feeling the occasional contraction. And of course I have work lined up for Monday (cleaning) and could reeeaally use the money, AND I'm going into this labor as drug-free, which will be very different from last time. My only consolation is that I went the first seven hours with an epi, so at least I didn't demand an epi the moment I got to the hospital. I am hoping the baby will stay in until Monday night...but somehow I don't see this happening. The contractions are somewhat in the back as well as front. I think that's an impending sign.
Ironic that I finally am hoping the baby will stay in for just a few more days, and s/he is deciding now is a good time. Anyone have any similar "very inconvenient moment" they went into labor?
