In brief: As long as u don't

Go into labor that can happen, once u get to 37 weeks labor will not be stopped and make sure u call your provider asap if your water breaks because in that case you will need meds to get you in labor so the baby does not end up with an infection, good luck.

as long as you aren't contracting or leaking fluid this can be normal. talk to your doctor

In brief: Yes

Losing your mucus plug really doesn't mean anything.
It isn't really associated with when labor might start. Even if labor does start at 35 weeks, most of the time your baby would be just fine. 35 week babies may have some trouble breathing, maintaining their temperature or eating. If they have this trouble, it is normally short-lived.
