Mommies to be check in

Mrs. Martin, from what I remember the mucus plug looks like a thick snotty glob. When you lose it you will know. It looks totally different from discharge. It's a little gross. I didn't lose mine with my son but with my daughter I lost mine all at once and had her a couple of weeks later, but some do lose it gradually.

I registered for one from Chicco and it seemed to be just fine for my height.

 

Kelly- This may sound like a stupid question considering I'm a few weeks away from having a baby and I should know this by now, but what does the plug look like? Is it obvious when it falls out? I also heard some women lose it gradually, not all at once. Is that true? I know what it is, I'm just not sure I would be able to identify it considering you tend to discharge a lot when pregnant.

it looks like the girls answered the questions while I was at work today...

They say it can be 2 days 2 weeks whenever she decides. The girls at work today think I have dropped, but honestly I dont know anymore. I know that it feels like a bowling ball between my legs. LOL. My boss said to me before I left he didnt think he would see me monday. But to be honest my doc is not on call this weekend so Im going to try and take it easy until sunday.

Danielle, Is Kerrington Danielle taking after her name sake or her father? LOL

It folds down super small and has a strap to carry on your back so you can hold baby too. I can lug that baby up stairs with a baby in my arms. Just a thought if someone was looking for a lightweight. It even comes with a storage place underneath. The new line is a bit different but you can find the older ones other places. Anyways just thought I'd let you know if you were interested.
I don't have the MacLaren yet, but I just tested it out today and I'm so getting it. I'm tall 5'8" and those damn low handles on the umbrella strollers are torture. If I was 5" shorter it would be ok, but I practically have to bend down to even reach the damn handles. SUCKS!!!!

 

Re: the plug... losing your mucus plug doesn't always mean baby is coming soon. You can lose your plug and not give birth until a month later. I didn't lose mine until the day I went into labor. It kinda looks like a slimey glob of mess. Since my water broke at the time I lost my plug, I didn't get a great look at it.

 

My labor story is pretty old, but if anyone is interested in reading it, you can find it on my blog. It gives the dirty details of losing the plug, etc.

What great news!!

Regarding the plug, that was interesting read. I had no idea. I mean I heard about it before, but didn't know what it looked like, etc.

Things are going well for me. Had my 29 week appt and all checked out well. I have another ultrasound in three weeks to see if the placenta previa went away. I sure hope so. In addition I have to go for fetal montoring starting in three weeks...three times a week.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
