Kinda TMI, but need suggestions! tinydancer118 2 kids; Manitoba 269 posts

I'm currently 33 weeks. I will be working until 38 weeks as long as all goes well. I'm just wondering when I should start wearing a pad? I never even thought about it with my 1st and then day 1 of 4 in labor, we decided to go to Costco to get our minds off things and do some walking and I ended up loosing my mucous plug there(thankfully made it to washroom without incident!) I've heard that you can lose it a lot earlier then when you go into labor, so I'm just trying to prevent anything super embarrassing from happening in the event I can't get to the bathroom quick enough! Any suggestions on when to start wearing a pad? And also when did you guys start to lose the plug? I don't want to panic If it happens sooner then later!

My water didn't break until I was in hospital and they did it for me. I'm kinda hoping that happens again lol

My first i was 37w2d - was going to be induced for pre-e but ended up going into labour while in L&D being checked.



2nd bub i was 36w6d my water just broke by itself.



I dont think my body carries to 'full term' ... luckily because i hated pregnancy LOL! :)
