  • Just call them

  • No! Don't go to labor and delivery. You could have a couple of weeks to go! The plug can be lost weeks or minutes early.

    You can have the tightening/light contractions for weeks. I know that isn't very encouraging, but I would have contractions for about 2 weeks before they ended up getting TONS stronger and harder.

    Hang in there. You ARE in the final stretch, but may have a wait still!

  • maybe call your doc and let them know, sounds like it was your plug, if it's around your delivery date (your not super early) then i wouldn't go to the hospital yet, they'll just send you home. Wait until you are feeling really strong contractions (you'll'll hurt like hell) that are closer together, it could be a few days before that happens. GL!

  • relax! does sound like it was your plug but your body can reproduce a new plug so you can actually lose your plug more than will KNOW when to go to l& me! ppl told me that and it used to drive me nuts but it is very true : )
