Not to worry: The mucous plug is a myth. It doesnt really indicate anything. It would be almost impossible that a piece of mucous could hold in a baby. Increasing mucous flow can be an indicator of some cervical change. If you are feeling contractions 3 to 5 minutes apart getting harder, then you should get checked.
