  • The plug does not regenerate according to my OB. Losing it does not necessarily mean you're going to go into labor.

    I lost mine with my first at 35 weeks and was induced at 39 weeks 5 days.

  • if thats the case, 1st i agree with Bugs, get a new Dr. But I would also try stool softeners, do whatever you can to kinda prevent so much force. Maybe your just pushing too hard. GL.
