Avatar f tn With my first I had my bloody show. (or: #dae8f4'>mucus or: #dae8f4'>plug with blood) & had her 2 days later. (I was 30 weeks) & with this one, I've been losing it since 27 weeks. I'm 34 weeks now. Most of the time, or: #dae8f4'>mucus or: #dae8f4'>plug or: #dae8f4'>doesn't mean baby.
Avatar f tn I have been losing big chunks of my <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>plug</span> all day today. This has happened or: #dae8f4'>before but it is much more today than ever. Anyone experience this and go into labor? I'm 38 weeks.
Avatar f tn With my first pregnancy I lost my <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>plug</span> when my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>contractions</span> started. With my second pregnancy, I started losing it weeks <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>bef<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>e</span> I went into labor. With this last pregnancy, I didn't or: #dae8f4'>lose it. I got small contractions and they took me straight to perform the c-section so I never seen my or: #dae8f4'>plug. From what I know it can be hours or weeks.

6903444 tn?1385946946 This morning after I went to the bathroom I wiped and there my <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>mucus</span> <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>plug</span> was or what's left of it I should say because I've been losing it slowly but I'm pretty sure I passed the rest of it due to the amount. Anyways, I felt fine or: #dae8f4'>before that and then all of a sudden started getting cramps then they went away. I am currently 38 weeks and 5 days along, contractions get stronger every day and they seem to get worse when I get up from sitting or: #dae8f4'>down.
Avatar f tn I will be 32 Weeks Saturday & today I lost my or: #dae8f4'>mucus or: #dae8f4'>plug. I lost a little of it yesterday but today I for sure lost the rest of it. With my oldest I or: #dae8f4'>don't remember even losing it but with my second I lost it at about 36 Weeks. But i'm not even 32 Weeks yet. Anyone else this early along loose it? I know it could take another couple Weeks to a month or: #dae8f4'>before labor happens, i'm just a worry wart!
