Mommy Lost Her Mucous Plug!!!

This post, written by Greg, originally appeared on

At around 4:13PM CST today, Mommy lost her mucous plug! (as if the title wasn’t a dead give away) It’s all getting started! Boogie’s almost here! Boogie’s almost here! Boogie’s almost here!

Now before anyone comes along to burst our excitement bubble, we know that this could mean nothing. It could be weeks before she goes into labor. But she could also go into labor as I’m writing this post. So we’re just on high alert right now as anything could happen!

And by the way, I had the graceful pleasure of having her run up to me, with tissue and mucous in hand, and shove it in my face to show me. I think I almost lost my lunch. So since it’s so gross looking, and coupling that with the fact that I just can’t write a post without including some sort of a visual aid, I’ve decided to include this picture to go along with the good news:

Prius Plug

It’s a Toyota Prius with a plug coming out of its butt. That’s sort of relevant… right?

    Hi! I found your blog through the bloggy gibeaway carnival. I’m so excited for you guys. My fiance and I have been together since freshman year in high school so the tagline about you being Jr. High sweethears kind of struck me. Just wanted to weigh in and say that I lost my plug with my 2 year old and went to my OB 2 days later on a Thursday and he told me I was locked tight. He was rather rude about it too telling me that mucus plug doesn’t mean baby and I wouldn’t be having her anytime soon. Then he said, “See you HERE next Thursday.” He was so confident she wasn’t coming anytime soon, but Sunday I was checking into the hospital. She came 10 days before her due date.

    Congratulations on the baby. I bookmarked you and I’ll keep checking back to see when Boogie arrives.

    Tick…Tock…Tick…Tock… Isn’t becoming a parent weird? Getting excited about mucus. Almost as fun as examining the color and texture of a newborn’s poop. :D

    Greg and Sheena, may God bless you and baby Boogie as he nears his debut into the world. Enjoy every cry, every diaper change, each burp, all ten of his fingers and toes because he will grow so fast. I can’t wait to see him!! My baby William is a month old already and I am not ready for him to get bigger yet!

    *BTW, I became “unplugged” one week before I had mine. Be sure to take it easy!
