At 1pm today I lost a small amount of my plug which was exciting enough. Had appointment this afternoon for a sweep and stretch. Not very pleasant but so excited when she said cervix was soft and I was already 2cm dilated! Midwife said cos of cervix and show she was very hopeful that things would start very very soon! Have had some period type pain (but that is probably from what midwife did) and now I've started to get some tightening but not regular and only lasting 20 seconds. I know I could still have days to go but am so excited!
