No: I haven't found that mucous plug is a good predictor of when a woman goes into labor. Women lose it at 35 weeks all the time and then go on to deliver weeks and weeks later. If you're having contractions or bleeding, definitely go to l&d, but rest assured that you're unlikely to deliver premature. Have doctor check your cervix at next visit, that is a greater predictor and will yield more info. ...Read more

Early Labor: Not sure what your real question here is. It is very vague. But, like most pregnant patients you are obviously very excited to get to delivery. You sound like you are on your way. There just is no way to predict when you will actually be in full labor. ...Read more

Call your OB: They'll have you come in to check the plug.....I sort of doubt you've lost the plug from what you're describing....but no way to know for sure without a vaginal examination. ...Read more

See your physician: You need to make sure you have no kidney infection, if okay, try a warm bath and gentle massage. Some acupuncturist and chiropractors also have programs for pregnant women. Don't take aspirin or NSAID'S like Aleve or Advil as they may hurt your baby. Slow walking and changing of positions may also help. Good luck. ...Read more

CALL YOUR OB: This is a question you should have already asked your OB ! your OB is on call or has someone on call 24/7 to help you! you can pass your plug from 1 day to weeks before you deliver. If you and the baby are ok which your OB can check that, you want to try not to deliver before 37 weeks as that is considered term, if a problem develops( hopefully it won't) u may need to be delivered soone. ...Read more

Small pieces of mucus plug lost, diarrhea, increased intensity of contractions (diagnosed w irritable uterus), 35 weeks. early signs of labor?

5 more weeks: it is not uncommon for attraction to begin starting at 32 weeks and they may not be a true sign of labor, rather the might just be practice contractions or whatare called Braxton Hicks contractions. Just because you lose some mucus, does not mean you will go into labor because your cervix will keep on creating mucus. call the hospital though, for regular painful contractions or loss of fluid. ...Read more
