I found this website when trying to figure out a question I have. i hope that someone can help! I am 32 weeks pregnant and lost my mucus plug already! Does this mean I will go into labor early?? This is my 3rd child, but always lost the plug in the past one week before I delivered! So, normal? Or not?
It's perfectly normal and doesn't mean you'll deliver early. Even the baby dropping early doesn't mean early labor. Many websites quote 2-4 weeks, but a friend of walks around more than 2 months after the baby drops. Some people lose their plug at 6 or 7 months. But be careful not to get infection though.
Thank you all for your comments, I did call the doctor and they are not concerned at this point, just want me to watch for other symptoms.You would think this being my 3rd that I would know these things, but every pregnancy sure is different!
i just lost my plug and am 33weeks. my whole pregnancy people have told me i look further along, and i do measure 6weeks ahead. just wondering what the longest wait is after the plug is lost... could i still go full term? i have also been having small braxton hicks contractions, and back pain!
i had juzt turned 7months and i been loosing parts of my mucus plug for over couple months now its clear no color to it but i have back pain every day and was wondering is this normal to loose the mucus plug this early what should i do n will this cause premature labor
