  • I would call the dr for sure. It sound to me like you lost your plug. at 31 weeks you baby can defenetly be delivered and survive. he/she will probably have to stay in the nicu for a few days but everything will be ok. DO NOT set here and stress over what could or couldnt be going on with your body. that is the worst thing in the world to do... call your dr and tell him what is going on.

  • i have awful back ache and really low pelvic pain but its there all the time the tightnings have stopped but the pain is still there! the mucus was only a streak!

    rung the doctor and she has said to wait as long as i can !!

    have you ever experianceed this only im in agony however they no longer feel like contractions as they are there all the time
