Mucus Plug — The Bump
3rd Trimester

Mucus Plug

I am 39 weeks pregnant and lost my mucus plug tonight and now experiencing very strong painful back pain. But seems impossible to "track" the pain. Could this be early labor? 2 days ago I was 80% effaced 3cm dilated

Re: Mucus Plug

  • Sounds like the start of labor. But it could also be prodromal. Try to rest during this early time and save your energy for the main event.

  • Sometimes labor presents as constant back pain, depending on baby’s position. Losing your mucous plug means nothing in relation to labor though. I realize this is a day late, but your back pain is worth a call to your birthing center.
