  • You're probably losing your mucus plug. Have no fears, it's normal.
    It doesn't mean you're going into labor but your body is definitely getting ready!

  • Early labor pains can feel a lot like period cramps. Keep an eye on things. If they are regular, and getting more frequent and more intense, it's labor! Mucusy discharge is totally normal at this point in pregnancy. It is a part of your mucus plug.

  • mucus plug... lost mine at 38 weeks. next day had bloody show (like the mucus plug but pinkish bloody streaks in it)... two days after that my water broke and few hours later had my beautiful baby girl... congrats you'regoing into labor... make sure your bag is packed and get plenty of rest until it's time to go to the hospital
