    well Only think I can tell ya is Ive been losing bits of mine for three days, but havent gone into labor yet. But have been having period type cramps the last few days too...they are kinda pinchy and are steady instead of coming and going. The plug looks like a big ol snot luggy ...its really nasty lol I know you can google pictures of it too

    You can lose bits of your plug and not go into labor for weeks. Your plug can also grow back. So no, losing your plug doesnt mean you'll go into labor soon :D But If you start getting contractions...then you may want to call your doc

    Im sure it was just a pit of it...if it was the amount in the picture...there is ALOT up there LOL And sure does sound like it could be :) if you have more of it with more blood then you may want to give a call just to make sure. This "passage" means the blood vessels in the cervix are rupturing as the cervix begins to open up. So as long as its mostly yellow or clear, I think your just fine :D

    No, see now if she isnt moving as much you should call. Mine little girl las slowed down but Im also alot farther along. So she doesnt have nearly the room. Whenever there is lack of movement you should give a call and see what they want you to do ;) And also being only 33 weeks you want her to stay in longer, TRUST me :D my little boy was born at 36 weeks and that was too early for him. having a premie is never a fun thing :flower:

    And that would be why I tell you to call :D if your concerned you need to talk to your doctor or midwife...not us mommies. We can only help you so much.
