Okay this is my first pregnancy and I can't seem to calm myself down over this. This pregnancy has gone so smooth and perfect after I got over my morning sickness...Then I went to the doctor last week and she said I was measuring 35 weeks and I'm only 32 weeks. She said it was no big deal we were going to go ahead and still do the sono at 36 weeks. That kind of got me scared because I'm scared I'm going to give birth to a huge baby.... Then yesterday morning when I went to the restroom and I wiped there was this clear, gooey, stringy gross stuff on the toilet paper. At first I thought since my husband and I has had a lot of sex this past week that maybe I didn't clean good enough. SO I jumped in the shower and cleaned up and we didn't have sex yesterday. Then today I wiped and the same thing, a few hours later when I went back to the bathroom it was no doubt my mucus plug. I called my dr just to ask a few questions and at first the nurse said, "oh thats fine that just means you are PROBABLY going to go into labor soon." THAT freaked me out and I reminded her I'm only 33 weeks. Then she said its ok I could still go a few more weeks but if I start having contractions that I need to go get checked out.
Sorry it's so long but I'm just wanting some of your advice. The last two days I've been having shooting pains in my vagina and today I woke up and the lower part of my stomach was soooo sore. I've read of people losing their plug and going into labor 24 hours later but then again I've heard of them losing it and carrying to 40 weeks.
(I'm probably just freaked out because I haven't had to deal with anything this gross yet lol) Thanks in advance.
