I'm 36 weeks and 6 days and at my doctors appointment on Tuesday afternoon I was 2cm dilated and 75% effaced, and then later that night ended up going to the hospital with strong contractions 4-5 minutes apart. When I got there I was 3cm dilated and 80% effaced so they sent me home with a big antihistamine to help me sleep and quiet my uterus to give my little guy a few more days to "cook". However, I've continued to have mild contractions all day yesterday and today and earlier today after using the restroom I noticed a grape sized chunk of what looked like snot....Just curious from an experienced person's point of view might this be me starting to lose my mucous plug??
