“Once you’ve seen it, you can’t un-see it”
That’s what all the memes say and a truer word has never been said with what I just witnessed.
Picture this, we are all sat at the dinner table, just finished our Morrisons own pizza (which if I’m being honest was awful) and we got on to the conversation about “waters breaking” yeah this is ok, I can deal with this and its quite an exciting time because it means our baby is on the way….
BUT what happens before the waters break, if you don’t know, then I will tell you (Make sure you are sitting down, NOT at the dinner table) How do I put this “Theres a plug” not a 13amp plug. Or a kitchen sink plug, although these principles are pretty much the same! This plug is holding everything in its technical name is “The Mucas Plug” and this is what google says about it.
“Passing of the Mucus Plug. The mucus plug accumulates at the cervix during pregnancy. When the cervix begins to open wider, the mucus is discharged into the vagina andmay be clear, pink, or slightly bloody. Labor may begin soon after the mucus plug is discharged or one to two weeks later.”
STOP NOW, JUST LEAVE IT THERE….. These are words I should of adhered to, but no, me being a midlife father had to click on google images.
DONT DO IT!
You’ve done it haven’t you? I know theres women out there right now going “oh but its natural, its beautiful” – jog on love there ain’t nothing beautiful about a women losing her plug.
We wasn’t told about this at school, yes we was taught how to put a condom on a banana (or was that just me?) and taught the basics but no one bloody mentioned “THE PLUG”
14 days to go by the way xxx
Jody (mum) is doing brilliantly and making me feel very proud x I love her and her plug xx
