passed mucus plug today only 22 weeks

This is my second pregnancy and I did not experience this with my first so I'm kinda of freaked out and not sure what it means I'm only 22 weeks as of today I looked up what the plug looked like and that's exactly what I was passing. Then I saw it was a sign of labor is there any mommy's that can put me at ease and what should I do???

I heard if it passes early like that it will grow back? I'd call your doctor! :)

I eould call in snd tell them. The mucus plug can regenetste itself also so that's a plus. Was there blood in it?

I passed mine at like 21 weeks... DR said it wasn't it, 22 weeks I went into preterm labor. My DR never listened to me.

It sounds fine but when you call in they might have you come in to check to see if you dilated or anything depending on the doctor for precautions.

Okay I think I'm just gonna take it easy for the night then and give them a call in the morning I know they'll have me come in for a checkup they are pretty good about that stuff! Thank you ladies for all the information and helping me relax a little about it.

The hospital here ***** a.s.s... so they didn't even try. The minute I came in my water broke, so when your water breaks you are suppose to have baby within 24-48 hours. They should have immediately given me a c-section, instead they let me dilate more, then decided to start me on magnesium when I was 4cm, then ended up jus inducing me.. they did a whole bunch of retarded ish. Smh...
