Okay so my friend is 34 weeks pregnant with her 2nd baby and she lost her mucus plug this morning and has had on and off contractions since 7 pm (eastern time)..and she was wondering if it was normal to have the urge to have a BM every hour or so?...she said she does actually go but she is worried it isnt normal..could this be a sign of preterm labor or is it not related...

 

Thanks!!

I would say that it is a sign of pre-term labor and she should call her doctor.

Honestly 34 weeks sounds a little early to be losing her plug I would be calling the dr/midwife and maybe go get checked out.

thats what I thought too but she said she called the doctor on call and they just said that she should wait and see...

The mucus plug isn't to much to worry about. You can lose your plug 6 weeks before delivery. If depends on how often she is getting contractions... The Bowl movements could just be the pressure from the baby.
