Mucous plug?

I lost my mucous plug about 2 hrs ago... (TMI alert)

I never lost my plug that i recall with my other 2 babies, but this was very thick stretchy glob of whitish/pale yellow and a LOT more than 'normal' discharge.

Now, 2 hrs later I find myself with some discomfort. I am having off/on cramping in my lower abdomen and a constant whole tightening of my whole belly... I would think BH, right? But the tightening doesn't seem to go away and it's been 15 mins of it. Hmmm. Not terribly painful, but no where near comfortable!

I am almost 36w, so it's a bit early for me. I have a history of going eary, both my kiddos were born at 38w (one induced, one natural).

What do you think? I have a call into my dr but they didn't seem concerned since I have an appt tomorrow afternoon and just told me to take it easy today.

Am I going into labor already or is this all totally normal?

If they are BH they should go away if you lay down on your left side and drink lots of water.

Re: Mucous plug?

my mucous plugs have always been pink tinged... not sure if that is how it is for everyone...

also losing the mucous plug does not meen labor is right around the corner but it is usually a good sign This may be it Mama!

Re: Mucous plug?

I lost my plug on Monday, sounds just like you described, Tues I had an apt, and I'm at 3cm (nothing last week) I'm 36w 3d right now. I had the contractions like you're talking about all this morning, from about 8:30 till around 1 in the afternoon. They eventually went away, but they were getting worse and worse as long as I sat still. Try getting up and walking true labor will get worse, BH will go away.

With ds I had blood in my mucous plug and went into labor that night. With dd I lost my plug on Monday and I am still pregnant though I am having more bh than normal. I heard it could be days or weeks but if there is blood in it then it is more likely that it is right around the corner.
