I've been having steady contractions all evening which got much more intense after I took a walk this afternoon.  I also had a lot of mucus, which I'm going to assume was my plug.  I figured that for sure I was in early labor, but things seemed to have stalled.  I'm still contracting, but it certainly isn't active labor yet, and I just don't know how long I can handle this nonsense.  I am tired and would like to sleep, but it's too uncomfortable for that.  I've also had a lot of burning/pain in my cervix making me really think things are happening.  I wish the pain would either get worse (putting me in active labor) or just go away!  I need some sleep.

hugs I have been in the same boat with the contractions and mucous. I hope things get moving for you! Take care mama.

try taking a hot bath and have a small drink of some wine. it will help relax you, and either help labor come on or help the ctx go away.

Alot of walking is good! I had alot of mucus around 38 weeks with my son BUT that wasnt my plug.... you'll know when your plug comes out.... its the size of a golf ball and cant be missed! Good luck mom!

I don't keep alcohol in the house..and I definitely wouldn't drink any right now lol though I know some women do (and that's okay if they are comfortable with it!).  I am also allergic to wine, so either way....I tried the bath, and it was really no help.  I'm still contracting this morning, I don't think there is anything to be done for it.  It's getting pretty miserable at this point, but thanks for your reply!

I hope active labor starts soon for you!  The end of pregnancy is always hard emotionally and physically from what I have found.

It really is...I'm mostly just tired of being so exhausted!  This is a lot of work.
