  • i lost my mucus plug a week before my son was born, so that not really relevant, but you should call your dr or go to the hospital if you are that uncomfortable... but the fact that you are asking if you should go says to me that its not that bad

  • I wuld call the cotor jst so he/she is updated with your condition, losing your plug is not an automatic go to the hospital but at 36 weeks I think you need to notify your doctor

  • You can lose parts or the whole plug for WEEKS before you're ready to go to the hospital. Call your OB on call just to be safe, but you're probably a long way off. Mucous plugs can regenerate themselves ... multiple times. That's not a good indication that you're "ready to go" and your baby really should stay put for at least a week or two anyway just to be the healthiest.

  • you can call to put your mind at ease but they wont admit you until you're atleast 4 cm or in active labor.
