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?

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

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

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

Not normal: It's not normal but not necessarily a bad thing. Your cervix is constantly making more mucous. You should still be checked to make sure you are not dilating early. ...Read more
