I will be 44 weeks on Tuesday. This is my 3rd pregnancy and the baby has dropped. I am feeling extreme discomfort in my lower pelvic area (vaginal area and inner upper thighs) I lost my mucus plug a week ago today it was the size of my pinkie x 2 and clear. My lower back feels pressure on and off. I never felt these symptoms with my previous 2. 1st was due the 21st and I went into labor on the 4th. 2nd was 1 day before due date. Anyone else experience these symptoms this early? My next appointment isn't until 5/20.
