I am going to be having my first ultrasound in 1-2 weeks.

My last normal period was August 6th. And I am 11 days late currently, meaning if I am pregnant I would be about 10-11 weeks as I haven't had any unprotected sex in the past month. I want to be but don't at the same time, as hubby is only allowing me to give birth twice then he wants to get snipped, and I want 3-4 kids, so I wanted to take fertility treatments to increase odds of multiples, our son is 9.5 months old currently, and we were going to start trying again in July, my hubby gets his promotion I will wait it out a few more days, or tomorrow, depending when I can get to the store to get a test

I have been having very frequent and strong contractions, on the monitor thing last night it got up to over 90 for the contraction detection. but I am just over 1cm dialated, and this morning I had some light pinkish brown discharge which I believe is my mucus plug. how long after you lose a mucus plug does it normally take for active labour to start???

    I am currently 33 weeks 5 days, and I will talk to my Dr when I see her in just over a weeks time. I have a very small frame, and also horrible knees, back, and ribs, and for the last few weeks it has been getting very difficult for me to support my own weight, plus the pain factor, since the little guy likes to be in my rib cage, that are bruised and never healed which is the main reason I want him out earlier, because I fear my body will not be able to handle it if I carry him to 40 weeks the bonus would be that my fiance would be home for it, as he is in the Air Force, and is away on course, and is home for Xmas, for a total of only 2 weeks, he left early September (on my birthday), and has another month of course left, plus will have to wait around for either a couple weeks or couple months to wait to find out where we are getting posted so I would like to have it early for that reason, so that they will have at least a few days of bonding before he has to come back, because my fiance will be unable to get flown back for my due date. also I have a 2 vessel cord, not sure if that makes a difference but yea.
