Soft cervix after severe braxton hicks. Now loosing mucus plug.


Anyone else been told their cervix are softening?? And now a few days later I'm pretty sure my mucus plug is coming out. Lots of big globs throughout the day today have fallen out. Unfortunately I'm almost 27 weeks so too soon for this I think...anyone else have been through this? This happened with my first but at 30 weeks and at 34 weeks I was almost 3cm dilated, had him at 38 weeks exactly. We were able to keep him in there!

I haven't been in your position, but I am keeping you and your baby in my thoughts. You must be terrified. I'm hoping that your baby stays put until ready!

THAnks. Went to the DR today and they want me to see a preterm specialist as my first I had preterm labor starting at 32 weeks luckily we kept him in until 37 weeks and 6 days, but it wasn't easy! I'm doing weekly visits and an ultra sound to check my cervix length as my cervix feel soft and thin

I've had this since 32 ish weeks, 3cm dilated at 34 weeks and now 37 weeks and no further progress, in fact my braxton hicks have completely stopped I just get bad period type cramps now. Pretty sure I've got zero plug left though! Hope you manage to keep baby put for a (lot) longer!

I think the mucus plug generally falls out in pieces throughout pregnancy and regenerates. My cervix typically starts dilating at 36 weeks and is already effaced about 60% by then so it is possible yours could be starting to soften slowly. It isn't always a sign of immediate labor though. When I go in for a dilation check, I'm always opened about 2-3 cm at the first check at 36 weeks, although my babies weren't born until 37-39 weeks.
