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.

I have been reading the last few pages of this thread and everyone is so far along, I feel silly for chiming in already. Good luck to all you ladies, I hope you are all feeling well.

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
