LOL mucus plug question!

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and yesterday when I went to the doctor they told me I was 2cm dialated and half way effaced. They also told me the babys head is very low and the contractions I am experiencing are no longer Braxton Hicks but the real deal. Is it possible that I have lost my mucus plug and not known it or will I know if I haven't?

  • Some people lose it and don't know it esp. if you are a flush and go type girl.

  • It's always been hard for me to miss! It's like a giant wad of snot. You might not be losing any yet...

  • Some people may not notice it, but sometimes it doesn't come out until your ready to pop that baby out! haha, I wouldn't be worried about it. :)

  • you might not lose your mucus plug. hang in there! at 36 weeks everyday counts toward making baby more ready to face the world :) but also hang in there if you are still pregnant in a month because sometimes babies play tricks like this
