    So yesterday I was sitting on the couch, watching TV when all of the sudden I got these EXTREME period like pains that would go away after about a minute of being there but like 5 minutes, come back. I don't really know how to explain them, but they hurt so so so bad. Then later that night, I was out to dinner with family and when I went to the bathroom, I discovered I had lost my plug. It wasn't blood tinged or anything, but it was definitely my plug. Then throughout the night, I kept getting sharp pains in my cervix area whenever I would move, or whenever LO would move. I also kept waking up because even though I'm on medication to keep contractions away, the contractions seemed to be getting stronger and reaching around to my back more.

    Does this seem like actual labor is starting?
    Because I've already had the shots for LO's lungs, they won't try to stop labor anymore, so I want to know if you all think I should be getting ready to go in, seeing as I don't have my hospital bag packed yet :blush:

    What do you think?

    I had this after I had contractions at 32 weeks. I ended up going to the hospital and being told I had an incompetent cervix. I think it's always best to get cheked out if it hurts that bad, or at least ring up and ask.

    If it was your plug, try not to worry I lost mine at 36 weeks, and didn't have her for almost another 5 weeks, loosing a plug doesn't indicate imminent labour. Maybe try drinking some water and see if the pain subsides? But I would still ring. x
