  • I really don't believe one has to do with the other. The Cervix should be preparing for labor and makes it easier for them to feel what is going on up there. I was really aware of losing mine with my first and swear that I didn't with my second. You don't have to to go into labor.

  • why didn't you ask your doc while he was "up there/ With ds I never noticed a mucus plug at all. Just call doc's office and tell them your concrens then you don't have to worry.

  • Not necessarily. When the doc did my first exam at 36 weeks, he could feel the head, but I didn't lose my plug until I was almost 39 weeks.
