I'm urinating quite frequently now, like 4 times within 20 minutes, the baby has dropped and she sits real low. Having false labor contractions, seeing as their not too strong, but painful and irregular. My stools are loose as well. I felt nauseous most the day today, but didnt get sick. I'm curious as to how close labor might possibly be!

Wow that is a scary thought.
I hope all goes well for you and definitely not go through that again.

oh boyy, that sounds like a really rough journey. i had an induction with my first born as well. and that went pretty quick and well. was only in labor for 4 hours. only difficulty i had was the placenta broke off inside of me. Hoping and preying that doesnt happen again, but if it does, then i'll have to deal with the paid of that again. Took my body a whole year before it went back to normal after having her. Couldnt sit up straight, was in bed curled up in a ball in pain. Went to a gastrologist and everything. Nobody knew what was wrong. then the pain went away on it's own slowly.

Inductions are rough I was in labor and it was moving slowly too slowly as the Dr. broke my water checking progress and baby was not ready to be out yet 6 hours later and counting so then they started pitocin (sp). oh man they said the contractions would be bad, but I didn't know how bad, bad could be. Then the contractions were to strong and stressed the baby. so then they'd cut back on the pit. Then labor progress would stop, then start pit, then stress it was an ugly process for 5 hours till he was finally born.
I have thanked God in real prayers for not needing assistance with my next 2 births.
With my third there was on and off again labor a head of time full moons, then during super storm sandy. They said I was 1 cm then 3 cm. The day he was born 3 weeks later and the week before no contractions at all. I woke up that morning and raced to the hospital with him in the canal with only 3 hours of sleep the night before.

becasue i dont want to go on christmas, i dont want to ruin the holiday for my other daughter. So the doctor said that if i was thinned enough, then they would do an induction for me with no problem.

The plug can break down and come out in pieces not as one solid piece.
My 2nd I lost plug in solid piece, my third it can out in pieces.
Wow the 19th, I guess they are going to try to keep it close to 40 weeks.
Why a planned induction?

I went to the doctor and they said i'm almost 1 cm dialated, and they are inducing me on the 19th. But today i have been having really bad mesntrual like cramping in my lower pelvis! and i went to the bathroom and it felt like there was this mucusy string like flowing out of me, and when i wiped thats all there was on the toilet paper, was thinking it was my plug. but now that night time got closer, it all eased up and im not feeling it anymore.

Danielle yep all pregnant mothers know what you mean. Wanting to be done being pregnant, wanting to finally meet that lovely baby they have been carrying. Not wanting them to be born to early and have any problems because of such.
They have a test they can do to see if your membranes are separating from the uterus. This is a better negative then positive test. Negative means unlikely labor will begin shortly. Positive means labor could start or could not start. I would mention the urination frequency you could have a bladder infection or UTI.
Is this your first baby?

sounds like it is getting closer.
Have you seen your Dr recently?
Have they done an internal?
I went through that 3 times in the last 2 weeks before I delivered.
