I lost my mucus plug last night(had bloody show, but a tiny bit) my nipples started pouring out colostrum & I was having mild contractions(bh) they stopped. So I went to sleep & when I woke up I had a very dry mouth, kept becoming dizzy, and felt like I was going to throw up. I plan to call my doctor but since its new years eve, I don't want them thinking I'm making stuff up : ( has this happened to you, if so what did u do? I have been drinking water & apple juice

Your plug can grow back. I sometimes wake up with a dry mouth. Just brush your teeth and keep drinking. Your Dr won't do anything about your plug. I've lost mine twice and it grows back.
As for buying dehydrated, your Dr will most likely tell you to just keep drinking.
My bokbs have been pouring out colostrum since the beginning and its been getting worse and worse. Probably because this is my second. But that's normal. Just put some breast pads in your bra, a loose bra, don't wear a tight padded one.
