  • I lost my mucus plug at 23 weeks. It was hard I started to have contractions and by the time i got in the hospital I was already dialated 6 cm. If you don't get the contractions then you should be fine. Good luck

  • At thirty seven weeks it is normal for your body to prepare for labor. It's the beginning, but doesn't indicate pending labor. Your next couple of weeks could be very uncomfortable, so just do the best you can and stay very hydrated.

  • It's normal for you to lose part or even all of your mucous plug sometime within the last few weeks. Losing your mucous plug isn't a sign of impending labor, just that your cervix is doing some dilating. Since the mucous plug can regenerate itself this is nothing you need to worry about. Watch for signs of labor and contact your MW/OB if something doesn't feel right. You said there was brown in it so that's more than likely old blood, nothing new. As for the lower back pain- welcome to late pregnancy, lol. ;)

  • My Dr prepared me for what mine would look like .. she said it would be the color of an apple core if you let it set out for a bit. And sure enough it was. Sounds like yours was too. I have 3 kiddos and lost mine at about the same time as you and it never meant much to me. But this is the beginning of the end! Congrats!
