Lost mucus plug now what

If you lost your mucus plug it means that your body is preparing for labor. Losing your mucus plug is often a sign that labor it near or you are in early labor. True labor could still be days or even weeks away.

Take it easy and watch for other signs of labor. If you have contractions you should start timing them. True labor contraction will be regular in frequency, increasing in length and strength, and not go away with activity or rest.

You will probably experience increase vaginal discharge and maybe even blood tinged discharge. If you experience any increased bleeding or if you think your water has broken you should call your healthcare provider.
