7/18/15 - Baby Blackbird, Unplugged

Last night, Julia looked up some pressure points in my ankles and feet that help bring on labor.

Then this morning in a rare occurrence, we had a thunderstorm and rain in LA!

Perhaps this combination along with our apparently dramatic little boy (he's our kid after all!) made my mucus plug come out!

Yes, it's as gross as it sounds, but you're obviously reading this because you want to know updates about this baby, so DEAL WITH IT!!!

The mucus plug literally closes the opening of the cervix to protect the baby from bacteria and infection. When the cervix dilates, the plug comes out and... 
WE ARE ONE STEP CLOSER TO LABOR! 
YAY!

What happens next is different for everyone and it could still take hours, days or longer before labor actually begins. But things are happening and that's great news!

I see more foot massages in my future for this evening!
