Hello - I am due in a week from Tuesday. I had an exam yesterday, was 70% effaced and 1 cm dilated. Had some small amounts of old blood and today I lost my mucus plug. First time mom here - no baths, no s_x right?? Labor must be close - I sure hope so! I think I will go to the store and clean tonight!

I believe you are fine to have s_x and take baths if you lost your plug...it's when your water breaks that you are not supposed to have s_x or a bath due to infection.

Yes, actually s_x would be good right now...help that cervix soften even more. Baths too. Some women labor and have babies in baths. They are very relaxing. I am due Wednesday, am 50% effaced, 2 1/2 cm dialated and having TONS of contractions. We are both close...the question is HOW close?!!
