  • most likely but it could still be a while yet... just pay attention to those contractions and if they are getting into a pattern. I never lost my mucus plug until right before labor, but in my cafe mom group some lost it up to two weeks before... but either way it is a good sign! good luck!

  • Sounds like your losing your mucus plug. I also saw that you are cramping, you may be in the beginning stages of labor. Is your tummy hardening with the cramps? If so, start timing them. Call your ob and let them know what's going on. Good luck to you!

  • Agree that you probably lost your mucos plug, which means anytime little man arrived a few days later. good luck
