    BaIzA...........it might be.........it is SO hard to tell. Do you have any other symptoms?

    I hope it is, for your sake.......I know the waiting is so hard......I went 10 days overdue with Olivia and it felt like an eternity.

    I know how tough it is to relax.....I alternated between searching the net for birth-stories, swimming, snoozing and chatting on BB......all the while fielding phone calls from everyone saying "have you given birth yet?" which didn't help much!

    I wish you the very best of luck!

    Very stringy and sticky usually, often stained with blood or a browny red colour.

    HAVE A MASSAGE! Accupuncture even... cailin & I had a pregnancy massage with Tracey Habron (health expert on BB) at term and we both went into labour within 48 hours. But being anxious wont help

    Aww Kylie, I really hope that things start soon for you. I agree with Kelly go and have a pregnancy massage, or get some accupuncture done to help bring on labour, both are fantastic. You can also try reflexology to help get bub moving.

    There are plenty of things you can do to get bub moving. But while you are waiting try and rest, take a walk with Dh, go shopping (with someone) and again try and get some rest. It's like watching a pot boil, it takes forever while your watching.
