39 weeks pregnant and still haven't lost mucous plug?

I'm 39 weeks pregnant and still haven't lost my mucous plug, but my breasts have been leaking constantly. They leaked early in the pregnancy as well but they didn't leak as consistently as they are now. I've also had about one bowel movement a day this week when earlier I was lucky to have one bowel movement a week. I had my ob check yesterday and the doctor said my cervix was softening but was not dilated yet. Should I be worried that I haven't lost my mucous plug yet? This is my first pregnancy please help :)

Some women dont lose their mucus plug at all. I lost mine early on but some just go in2 labor without losing it. Your fine, dont worry yourself

Don't worry about it at all. You may not lose your mucus plug until you are actually giving birth. Every pregnancy is different. I've had three kids and i've only noticed my mucus plug once and it came out when my water broke.

Im 39+3 and havent lost mine either or dilated or thinned either at all. You may have also lost ti and not known like if your dr checked you and sometimes it comes out then but they dont tell you. It will happen though no worries.
