another plug question... sry. Plz answer!!!

Ok so, can they check to see if i lost my plug? - how would they do it? -

I was talking to my friend jess & she said that i could get infection from losing my plug - is this true? - I called my doc & explained about my discharge & she said yeh it was most likely your plug - but she said only if im having contractions five minutes apart, bleeding or water breaks than to come in - But my friend is kinda freaking me out -

Sorry im a first time mom so sorry i keep asking all these questions -
Also last night, while i was sleeping, i couldnt even switch positions without taking my time because i was in pain - It was throughout my whole stomach but mainly in my lower stomach but i thought maybe it was just how she was laying, this morning im not in pain like i was last night - im achy & have pain here & there but nothing really bad...

I really need advice...?

  • Hunny you're gonna be fine, yes you can get an infection but don't worry you'll be fine I promise lol I too am a first time mom and it scared the heck out of me when I lost mine. Has your friend been pregnant if she hasn't tell her to chill serouisly, if she has well she over reacting....labor could be soon and it might not be you're supposed to lose your plug it's part of the process just relax

  • Your lower stomach might be mild contractions. Some women will experience back or stomach labor pains. I had back pain with my 1st and stomach pains w/ my 2nd.

    I wouldn't worry too much about your plug, your chance of infection is pretty slim...

    Your baby should be coming soon enough since you lost your plug.

  • sweetie, you will be just fine. Just make sure you wear cotton underpants (if you wear underbutts) and make sure you take a shower (not a bath) ever night or every other night/day to keep your self clean. You should be having your baby soon seems how you lost your blug. I had mine 2 1/2 weeks after i lost my plug. Congrats momma!
