I lost my mucus plug and now I have this constant sensation that I have to pee and whenever my baby moves its more painful than the Braxton hicks that I've had in the past. What does all this mean? Will my water break soon? Or what can I do to speed it along?

How far along are you? At your last appointment were you dilating at all? The mucus plug can be lost early, and regrow. I lost mine, or started losing mine about 1-2 weeks before I delivered, and it just kept coming. Like I lost it in chunks. When I was at the begining stages of labor, I had lots of pressure, and pooped a ton. I didn't have to pee though. The baby is just probably sitting low on your bladder? Maybe you are at the begining stages of labor. But your water does not have to break in order to begin labor. With my son, it broke before I started actual contractions. With my daughter, they had to break it for me while I was pushing her out. They thought it would break on its own from all the pressure, but was actually delaying the delivery. After they broke it, I think it was 2 or 3 pushes and she was out.
