In brief: Mucus plug

A mucus plug may be a sign of a dilating cervix and onset of labor.
Discuss with OB office today.

In brief: Maybe early labor

At this time in pregnancy you could lose your mucous plug, and you could be feeling cramps as the birth canal begins to thin and soften in preparation for labor.
However, this could be signs of premature labor, maybe a urinary tract infection, and should be immediately checked out by your obstetrician.
