36 weeks pregnant mucus plug fell out

I lost my mucus plug at 35 weeks 4 days.. today I am 36 weeks pregnant, baby pushes down on cervix and has dropped. My vagina feels as if it’s bulging out.. should I have concerns? How soon do you think she’ll be here?

    She could be here today, she could be here in a couple of weeks. The end of the last trimester is uncomfortable. If you have concerns, call your nurses line. I walked around with what felt like a bowling ball between my legs for two weeks before going into labor.  It's not fun.

  • Your mucus plug can regenerate. Just because you lost some of it doesn’t mean you will be going into labor soon. And at 35/36 weeks baby really needs to stay in a little longer. I’d mention it at your next doctor’s appointment and call immediately if you start having contractions.

    You should be having weekly appointments with your OB soon (if not already), so I'm sure they can give you a better idea than we can. Having said that, even OBs can't always accurately predict when you'll go into labor. 

    LSS:
    1. Ask your OB if you have concerns, or wait until your next appointment.
    2. Simmer down. The end of pregnancy seems like it lasts forever.
