Call your doc: It's possible to lose your mucus plug, but create another one. But, you have to wonder what may have allowed your mucus plug to come out early. You have to consider premature labor/dilation - mention it to your doctor. ...Read more

Losing the mucus plug at week 35 and it's bloody is that a bad sign?

Losing the mucus plug at week 35 and it's bloody is that a bad sign?
