I am 39w3d - due on Wednesday - and I SWEAR, nothing is happening down there! On the 4th I had an appt. and the doctor said I was almost 1 cm. dilated, and on the 11th I was still barely 1 cm. dilated. I haven't had hardly any discharge this entire pregnancy ... and I still have nothing this close to the due date.
I know sometimes women don't notice losing their mucous plug ... but does it really always come out hours or days before labor? Everytime I go to the bathroom I check the toilet HOPING I lost it! I keep thinking that at least when I lose the plug, I'll feel like he's really on his way. But so far, nothing. I am now wondering if it can just come out during delivery. ???
