75% effaced, less than 1cm dilated.
Doc said, "The baby could come tonight....or in 4 weeks." LOL
Hurray! Getting closer.
I lost a huge piece of my mucus plug about 3 weeks ago when baby dropped for a day.... he came back up and nothing since then. I was scared at the time, but nothing came from it. Hope some of us start having these babies soon! (I am 37+1 today and I know there are others that are at least 38+ in this group!!!)
I'm 36 weeks. I had a couple of contractions yesterday, but not much today. DD was born at 35wks and I've been on progesterone injections to prevent preterm birth, so it's not totally unexpected. I'm just glad to be past 36 weeks because now I can deliver at the small hospital I want to be at - as opposed to the high-intervention hospital that takes the preterm birth. I'm attempting a VBAC, so the hospital I give birth at feels pretty important.
It wasn't bloody - just a big, huge piece of mucous. With DD I lost the plug and my water broke at the same time. But, this pregnancy has been SOOO different than the last - who knows?
I've been having those too, but I just consider that discharge rather than mucus plug. IME, your mucus plug pieces will be pretty big and likely brownish/bloody. But, everyone is different.
That being said, if that is your only symptom I probably wouldn't worry about preterm labor, just because it is likely discharge and even if it were mucus plug, that doesn't mean baby is coming right out. :)
