41 weeks, 1 day
So I had another massage today. Totally great, felt super relaxed afterwards. My mw sort of got me all hot and bothered at yesterday's appointment, really focusing on a lot of talk about pain. I was like, dude, you are totally ruining hypnobirthing right now! :( I had a hard time sleeping again. Comments like hers really fly around in my head a lot.
But the massage helped - I thought a lot of birth affirmation type of things during it, I feel much better now. Hebrews, did you have comments that made you doubt hypnobirthing? And how did you get them out of your head?
And in potentially exciting news - I think I lost my mucus plug! :) Haha, I thought of taking a photo, but it's too gross. I will let your fingers do the walking, google has plenty of images. That's why I think it is probably what it was - from checking out google images. It was smaller than I thought it would be? Maybe there is more in there? I don't know how you'd know. Mine was dark brown.
The Internetz seem to agree this could mean she comes tonight, or in two weeks! Ha! Just like EVERYTHING about birth, there is a huge range of normal. But I suppose it does at least mean I dilated a little more today, and that's a step in the right direction.
All in all a good Thursday! :)
