After being checked down there, the dr. said "hopefully that will help you go into labor" I am guessing by checking down there he sweeps his finger around to help loosen things up?? Well I can tell you it hurt when he checked me, unlike at my 38 week checkup.
Anyways, today I went to wipe after peeing, and I noticed what I think might be the mucous plug. It was yellowish stringy, and there was some brown coloring in it It was about a couple of inches long, stingy and groose. A little while after that, I had to go pee again, and there was a little more of that brown goowy stuff again... but only alittle bit this time.
Do you think after that exam, I may have gotten more dialted and that caused me to loose my mucous plug?? Does loosing your mucous plug mean labor may be soon??
This is my second pregnancy, and I am due May 5th. Please help!! Thank you!!
