  • i lost my plug like at 32 wks. it regenerates so i lost it like 3 times before i deliver. unless your having more then a6 contactions in an hour or your water breaks then dont worry.

  • thank you, i am having about 4 in an hour lol so yea but they hurt so much when i went to the E.R nurse told me that they braxton hicks so that is the only thing stopping me... that and i do not have a ride to the er and no one to watch my son, at least not until wednesday

  • it might be the mucus plug but i agree with PP that it's ok to lose it, it doesn't really indicate that labor is on its way. :)
