Brown discharge could be normal too but definitely best to get checked out. Did it seem like old blood or was it mucousy? As someone said above, it could have been your mucus plug which could mean nothing. It can regenerate several times during pregnancy. But still, better to be safe than sorry in case your cervix is dilating and that's the cause for the discharge.
Should I start pumping and freezing?

And it wasn't thick... Pretty watery and yellow/brown. I think it's my plug. I called the OB department here and she told me to come in if I am still leaking in the morning. She said she wasn't too worried because I'm not contracting. I'm in a little discomfort though because Ryland is sitting VERY low and every little movement hits my cervix. Ouch.

No, don't pump and freeze. Your body will produce what it needs to when baby is born.

If you're brave, you can google pics of mucus plug. I haven't seen any sign of mine yet (some women never do) but it looks, well, like mucus.

Try laying down for a half hour. When you get up, if you feel any "gush", I'd head in to the hospital to be safe.

Right now I'm still losing the "plug" and he is sitting low. No contractions or anything though and I feel okay. Urg. Occasionally my stomach will tighten up, but it doesn't hurt... Not sure if that's a contraction or not since it's not painful at all.

Sounds like Braxton Hicks contractions.

As long as your contractions don't get longer, stronger and closer together you are probably fine. Try and rest as much as you can! And drink lots of water.

This page is a great resource for breast feeding.

I would also recommend finding your local la leche league and/or a lactation consultant and breastfeeding clinic that are independent from the hospital or government. Doula practices are usually good sources for clinics. They are usually more natural minded and have more resources and knowledge at least in my experience.

Breastfeeding may come easy but it may not (which is normal) and its good to be prepared before birth. I know that if I didn't have the support of my doula and the clinics that I went to twice a week I probably would have given up. There is so much to learn!

Being overdue sucks. That is all.

I was reading this thread last night ..and I had a dream that I was pregnant and there were mucus plugs everywhere. They were just falling out of people left& right.

Kudos to you preggo ladies if it's anything like that dream

LOL Yvonne!

I keep having creepy dreams about deer. You think they're placid creatures but in my dream they're always a little devious, a little frightening.

Being pregnant probably isn't anything like the mucus plug part of your dream, but imagine having weird dreams like that all night long, and that's what being pregnant is like.


I know vomiting can be a sign of labor being a few days/a week away, but how often does it occur after full term, suddenly, when it's not?

I was throwing up really badly last night, but I think it was 100% a result of heartburn? I fell asleep around 8:30 by accident, and woke up at 1:30...ate two chocolate donuts and a glass of milk, then had horrible heartburn (which I do every time I eat unless it's just milk or a banana). I wasn't nauseous at all, but a couple of hours later my saliva was getting really thick and it was hard to swallow unless I was swallowing water. And then I drank all my water and before I got up to get more I started gagging, and then started throwing up and couldn't stop. I didn't feel nauseous at all, though.

Google tells me throwing up/excess saliva is common as a result of heartburn/pregnancy...but I've also had heartburn this bad for over a week, and haven't thrown up yet.
