You should be fine hunny. i lost my mucus plug at 35 weeks and im still going.. losing your mucus plug doesnt nessecarily mean labour is on its way but if your really really worried then sure, ring your midwife

I started losing mine this week. I don't think it's anything to worry about. Some people lose it in bits over weeks and weeks and others have it all come out at once.

Unless your starting to lose a lot of it i would not worry. But if there is blood in it then it cannot harm to ring the midwife can it.

I wouldn't worry too much - the mucous plug can replenish itself right up until the last minute I think it's only if it's blood-tinged that it means labour is around the corner.

Apparently even if it is bloody it doesn't mean you'll go into labour soon,I thought it did and told my midwife I'd had my bloody show(a week ago) and she said it could still be weeks saw my consultant today who said it was a good sign that things were going as they should,but not to expect labour soon because of it...doh!it got my so excited too!
