For those of you who are men who read my blog and are easily offended. Skip this entry.
I lost my mucus plug this AM. I’ve never lost it before. I was SO grossed out by it.
I am not a mucus fan. Back in the nursing home days I’d rather clean-out a guy’s colon than do trach care on another patient.
Anyway, I should now have the baby in the next couple of weeks.
I love it when patients come in all expectant like the baby will come out any minute, “I lost my mucus plug!” “and….?”
Let’s just say it’s not plugging anything. Sadly. I wonder if there’s research for the average time you give birth after said plug is expelled. I will have to google it. Yes, it turns out I was right — you will usually have the baby within 2 weeks.
Lucky, lucky me. BTW, the due date is today. Kaiser thinks it was last Friday — but the ultrasound said today so I’ve been going off of that. Had an NST this AM which was totally fine, more tests on Monday.
