Does this mean I am going to go into labor soon?

Hi I am 35 almost 36 wks prego, and I am having really bad groin pain constantly. I think I am losing my mucus plug. I have alot of green/clear /white discharge constantly every time I go to the bathroom. ( no infection or stds either) Been having a lot of BH contractions. One night I had strong contractions for 6 hours a minute apart that hurt. Been very crabby. Does this mean labor is soon?

  • It could but you could still have a few weeks. I started to lose my plug at 37 weeks and my baby came at almost 40 weeks. I also had bad pain, but was told it was just the pressure and weight of my uterus. When you are in labor, the contractions will be so bad you won't be able to talk through them. Then you'll know for sure!! Good luck!

  • It could but you never know. Make sure yo are drinking lots of fluids so you stay hydrated. Dehydration can cause BH contractions. O and I thought I was the only one who had green discharge when I was pregnant!lol It freaked me out and I talked to the doc and he said it was fine.

  • I did go to the hospital and they sent me home and told me to bare with the pain. The contractions stopped a couple hours after I got home.

  • The hospital didnt tell me really anything.. But I didnt think BH contractions hurt that bad. They were breathe taken sometimes. This is my second pregnancy and none of this happen with my first one.

  • It could be. Are you dialated at all? With my second son he dropped at 32 weeks, I was 3 cm dialated for the last 5 weeks, lost my plug at 36 weeks and he was STILL 5 days late! Maybe you'll be lucky, but this is really early. Hopefully baby can hold out a few more weeks. As for the pain, try a hot bath, it's usually a temporary fix.
