I don't know how to spell mucous I don't think so deal with it . . .
ANYWAY - part of my mucous plug came out!! I was SO excited. I know that's totally disgusting and for some people it is still weeks until birth after it escapes, but for some birth happens relatively quickly afterward (please be me, please be me). I called hubby to tell him:
Hubby: Is everything okay? I just talked to you!
Me: Guess what, my mucous plug is coming out!
Hubby: See, I told you, everyday is one day closer. Did you save it?
Me: What?? Why would I save that, do you want to see it?
Hubby: Well, you have all your pee (he is referring to the five pregnancy tests that I still have) in the baby box so I wasn't sure if you wanted to keep that too.
Ha ha . . . .
And that's not all the excitement I had today! I broke out into wicked hives and welts. It spread so fast I was super panicked. I took TWO benadryl and took a shower then iced all the welts. I called the doctor and they said to come in this afternoon. I also have only one very swollen foot and ankle that I've had for several days. Well, the two benadryl knocked me out cold! And the babies too, normally they are wiggle worms when I first wake up but they are stoned. So I missed my appointment and told them I'm not coming in. The nurse gave me a huge guilt trip so I went in anyway.
The rash could have been anything from allergies to something pregnancy related. The one swollen foot is a big concern. Swelling in pregnancy is very common, but the fact that it is very bad in only one area isn't good. The fact that I don't have high blood pressure means that we're probably okay for today but it needs to be monitored as long as I have a mushy playdough foot.
The doctor said it should be any day now! Oh please, oh please, oh please be right!!
