Loosing mucous plug and spotting-- Do I need to go to hospital?
Hi...Hope all of you ladues are doing wonderful.I am nearing my EDD and 39 weeks as of today with EDD Jan 12.Have a question for you guys.
I started loosing my mucous plug yesterday in the evening.(It is Jan 05 9pm here)There was blood clot in it when I found it two times yesterday, today morning too I lost a chunk of it but only with blood streaks.Had called my Obg to check about it, she asked me to go to the hospital only if there are contractions or the water is broken, none of which has happned till now.
This evening I found I am spotting a bit, very light.
Can you ladies tell me if I should go to the hospital or wait for any more developments?
Thnx for responces. Take care.
Yes, the bloody show will be a bigger indication than just spotting. You will know because it will be like nothing you have seen in along time. Also try and wait till contractions are coming on--for you don't want to be at the hospital for nothing--stay home and be comfortable.
id be worried about the spotting though you should get checked by your doctor its normal to lose your plug a while befor labor sometimes its normal to spot aswell but sometimes its not so for the sake of your little one just ask your doctor i am sure everything is fine goodluck to you.
