  • its called your mucus plug is normal. just go about your day. labor should be near.

  • It sounds like you lost your mucus plug. It's not an emergency. I lost mine a week before I went into labor with my second child.

  • It sounds like your bloody show. It could mean labor is soon or it could still be awhile. Good luck!

  • Breathe, Mama! That's just your bloody show. Labor is in the early processes, however, after my bloody show, It took me twelve hours to go into labor. I'm going to tell you to call your doctor anyway, since it's a reasonable hour, it will put her on alert, and she will be able to remind you what to do and when to call. Congrats, and if you can get some sleep, do it!

  • U if you think you should always go rather safe then sorry mucus plug doesn't always mean labor but w you at 40 weeks probably means you could be withing hrs so go in! Good luck

  • I would wait personally, it doesnt sound like anything unusual, but if you feel like you need to go in it wont hurt.

  • When you get a minute, let us know what is happening.

  • My doctor had told me that it could be up to two week before labor actually started. Mine actually started 2 days later. Hang in there, mama!!
