Im 32 weeks and think im loosing my mucous plug...should i be worried? how many of you have lost it early and not gone into labor?

If you are losing only little portions, your body could be replacing it, and as such you are probably a long way off from labour. I have been losing little...portions of my mucous plug for over a month, and still no sign of baby. Also, as a side note: my mother was 3 cms dialated for the last 3.5 months of her pregnancy and still gave birth around her due date. So in general, it is difficult to predict...

i called the ob on call and she said after I said couldn't I wait to come in until tomorrow on a regular day where I don't have to go through the ER "You are not making me feel all warm and fuzzy." I still don't know if I should go in or not, as I haven't lost any more, am not cramping, etc. I think i will just wait and see for a couple hours. My insurance sucks and they seem to have ways around paying anything. p__ses me off. And I would rather seem my normal OB. I never lost my mucous plug until labor with my daughter and I don't recall what it looked like. It wasn't yellowish like snot. It was more whitish with blood in it. so I don't know. I don't want to drive an hour for no reason.

ashley, with my first , i had the yellowish snot-like mucous you described for about 3 weeks before i was due and still had to be induced 8 days after due date... i think you're fine as long as you're not having regular contractions... i wouldn't go to the er unless you truly feel concern in your gut, bu tthat is just me! :)
