Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

First of all, don't worry. It sounds like it probably is your mucous plug. But, that doesn't mean much of anything. With my first baby I lost my plug but nothing more happened and I still had to be induced. With my second I don't think I lost it prior to going into labor. Losing your mucous plug is just one of those things, like Braxtion-Hicks contractions, and cervical thinning and dilation that are good signs, but don't really mean anything.
