Passing Plug Little By Little

Rabbits07 - March 17

All...I will be 36 weeks tomorrow. From about 33 wks I was passing little amounts of mucous several times a day, plus having what I thought were BH cx. (they were sometimes really uncomfortable, but never regular). I went in for my 34 wk Checkup ( was actually 34 1/2 weeks) and dr. checked me and said I was dilated 2 cm and put me on bedrest. Since then I have only had a little bit of mucous charge every 3or 4 days (the BH cx have also decreased in frequency) I had figured I was passing my plug, but now it doesn't seem like it. Did it perhaps stop because I was on bedrest? I knew you could pass your plug a few weeks before labor actually started, so i wasn't worried about it...actually now i'm disappointed that it doesn't seem to be happening. Has anybody else passed some, then quit, then started passing it again? This is my #7, so I feel kind of goofy asking, but it seems with all of mine things have been so is just so hard to tell!

i say yes, because i'm experiencing something close to that. regularly i have the mucous discharge, but then there were 2 days where I didn't really have any, then it started to pick back up again. my dr said that you don't have to actually lose a "cork/plug", that it can deteriorate over time, little by little. hope this helps

what did your doctor say to do then? watch for the bloody show? how are you supposed to know if you actually pa__sed the plug part?

regardless you're going to pa__s your plug. whether it's 3 weeks or 1 hour prior to the onset of labor. the deterioration, and mucousy discharge is the plug, but i don't know how to tell you when it's fully out. the doctor told me to just wait until my a)my water breaks.. or b) wait until my contractions are ~5 min apart. (whichever comes first) and then call/ go into the hospital.
