I am 34 weeks and I think I'm losing my mucus plug. It hasn't come out all at once though, just little by little since earlier today. Also I've started getting cramps down low. Should I be concerned?

No, that's a good thing. After your plug comes out you're water will break. And the cramps are prolly mini contractions that are getting your cervix to open up. If you're really worried about it, call your doctor. I'm not an expert, but I just spent two days in the hospital trying to get all that to happen, feel blessed that you don't need drugs to get all this working like I seem to. lol. But your mucus plug is supposed to come out in pieces. Everything sounds completely normal here, but once again, if you're really worried, call your doctor. :)

I went to my dr appointment yesterday and mentioned that i had lost my mucus plug and my doctor checked me to see if i have dilated and i did not. She told me that I could still lose some of my plug because it doesn't come out all at once. I haven't been feeling any change but, more movement. Good luck!!

Ya I ended up calling my doc, and he sent me to the hospital to get checked out. I was contracting so they gave me a shot to stop the contractions so I wouldn't go into early labor, and I'm 1cm and 50% effaced and put on bed rest now. Who knows whats gonna happen.
