I just lost or am losing my mucus plug, im due in a week, and I was 2cm 50% thinned out on Tuesday. I'm freaking out. What to do or look for now. Its my second child, but its been seven years since my first.
I lost part of my mucus plug at 21 weeks and had no problems after. Now at 25 I've been losing it throughtout the day this time some parts had a little blood. At first I had no cramps so I wasn't worried but as the day goes on I'm having more and more cramping. How do you tell the difference between cramping and contractions? Not sure if I should be worried or not.
You can go weeks with no contractions after losing your plug. It doesn't mean anything. Just your bodies way of getting ready. Same as braxton hicks.
Not necessarily I lost mine a month before labor. Losing mucus plug isn't always a sign of labor. But if your concerned or having any other signs of labor then I would either call or go in to l&d.
Nothing bad don't worrie my first pregnancy I lost my mucus plug a month 1/2 before my water even broke and everything was fine

I've had three bloody shows since losing mucus plug. My mum thinks he gonna be here before I get induced on Thursday.
With my first I had my bloody show. (Mucus 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, mucus plug doesn't mean baby.
I have been losing big chunks of my mucus plug all day today. This has happened before but it is much more today than ever. Anyone experience this and go into labor? I'm 38 weeks.
With my first pregnancy I lost my plug when my contractions started. With my second pregnancy, I started losing it weeks before I went into labor. With this last pregnancy, I didn't lose it. I got small contractions and they took me straight to perform the c-section so I never seen my plug. From what I know it can be hours or weeks.

I'm 37 weeks and feel like my body is getting ready for labor any day now but I haven't lost my mucus plug. ftm so I'm not really sure what to expect or how the start of labor is suppose to feel I just know I have been feeling really different these last couple days!
Ok ladys anyone who has lost there mucus plug do you keep loosing mucus? I am pretty sure i lost mine yesterday (it had a bloody show) and everytime i go to the bathroom i keep noticing alot of mucus still. So far no contractions but hoping today or tomorrow something happenes.
How do you know you're close to delivery? How far apart are your contractions as well. Losing your plug isn't an indicator of labour only because you can lose pieces of it and depending on how far you are it can also regenerate. You can also lose it for weeks before delivery. If you're contracting every 3-5 minutes or less and they're at least 30 seconds or longer you can call L&D and see if they want you to come in.
I lost my plug a week before i went into labor
and my braxton hicks are getting stronger . with lower back pain. I would look out and make sure your mucus plug doesn't have blood in it or even brown . or if your contractions are getting stronger and closer together . or if you are leaking fluids.
I will be 32 Weeks Saturday & today I lost my mucus plug. I lost a little of it yesterday but today I for sure lost the rest of it. With my oldest I 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 before labor happens, i'm just a worry wart!
It's been a while. I remember losing my mucus plug a month of so before going into labor. Unfortunately, mucus plug doesn't really tell you if labor is imminent. Even dropping, dilated or fully effaced is not. When those really painful contractions comes, you'll know labor is coming.
I am almost 36 weeks and have read about losing your mucus plug. I have read so many different things about this im not sure what Im looking for or what to expect. I have read some women lose it all at once and some gradually. Some say it should have a little blood in it, some say that there was no blood. I have also read that when losing your mucus plug you could go into labor that day or weeks later. Should I inform my doctor asap or let them know my next visit.
But I would wait on going in to the hospital for contractions to start cause they won't keep you for losing your plug because it can start from there or it can still be a lil bit but I would keep an eye on everything!
