3rd Trimester

Lost my mucus plug at 34 weeks

I lost my mucus plug yesterday. I was surprised since I'm 34 weeks. I called my doctor's office and they told me that It could still be two or three weeks before anything happened, call them if my water breaks, blah, blah, blah. I called my mom and she went and jinxed me by saying "well, just don't have him next week since I'm going out of town for a couple of days, haha". I've been in full blown nesting mode for a couple of days, but haven't been able to do much about it because we are still waiting on the bassinet and some other nursery items from my MIL. Plus, I'm not on firm bedrest, but was pulled out of work and told to stay down as much as possible. I've got pregnancy induced tachycardia and palpitations and if I get too active, that gets aggravated. With my first pregnancy (13 years ago) I lost my mucus plug about a week before I went into labor, the day before my due date. With my 2 y/o DD, I was induced at 38 weeks due to blood pressure and hadn't passed it yet. I kinda feel like 2-3 weeks is a bit of a stretch given that this is a 3rd pregnancy. I would rather keep this kid in as long as possible, but it just doesn't feel like it's going to happen. Any other 2tm (or more) go for that long after passing their mucus plug?  (Sorry this is so long!)

  • Don't know if this is a truth or not, but I have heard...on this board....that the MP can grow back????  Not sure if that is accurate or not, but maybe it is and will be the case in your situation.

  • I'm almost 34 weeks and I started losing bits of my MP weeks ago... I wouldn't be concerned about going into labor any time soon unless you are exhibiting labor symptoms.

  • I lost mine at 34 weeks and am still waiting for labor to start. My doctor said it isn't always an indication of labor starting soon. Try not to worry!

  • I lost mine at 22.5 weeks...and no signs of labor so far. My high risk doc said he doesn't think they necessarily grow back, but it just doesn't always mean labor is coming.
