Does anyone know? Mucous plug/diarrhea

I spoke with the docs office and they said it is ok that I lost my mucous plug at 33 weeks.  I just forgot to ask them and wondered if any of you know, can I still have sex and take baths?  I dont have sex often anyway but just incase the subject comes up lol.  And as far as taking baths goes, I like some suds in there if I take a bath over a shower.  
Also, I have had some diarhea (diarrhea) since I lost the plug yesterday.  Is this related or just a coincidence?

You can have sex and take a bath!!! Feel free! Diarrhea is usually associated with the thinning out of your cervix.

also wondering, if I feel slight movement/pressure in between my hipbones (ie. down low) does htat mean my baby has dropped?  I think I still look like I'm carrying high... I just don't know anything anymore and my doc is gone on vacay this week.  I see him next tuesday... hopefully things are fine till then

I hope it doesnt mean labor is coming soon.  I'm only 33 weeks today!

I wasn't aware that diarrhea had to do with thinning of your cervix.  I had it last week for about 48 hours.  I am 34 weeks pregnant.  Should I be concerned about labor starting soon?

Sorry I posted on this today in an above post as well, I should have been more detailed it doesn't mean that your going to go into labor. What happens is when you get diarrhea it produces progesterone which enables your body to thin out your cervix. You can do this off and on for a very long time, and not worry about going into labor!
