    Default Do you call the hospital/doctor?

    If you lose your mucus plug?

    I didn't. I lost a big blob this morning. It had a tiny bit of blood streaked through it. I wasn't worried at all. Haven't had any contractions or pains, only lots of Braxton hicks.

    Talking to a friend tonight she started fretting saying I'm exposing the baby to infection and that I NEED to contact the doctor or midwife ASAP.

    So, do/did you call or not?

    The baby is safe in the amniotic sack and the plug can grow back so technically you are fine

    Don't fret and good luck

    That's what I thought. But I admit, she's freaked me out a little. Lol.

    It's all good! But if you are worried at all just give your maternity ward a call and they could probably put your mind at ease better

    Argh gotta love good intentions of those who scare the crap out of you :-)
    You're fine, let your doctor know maybe tomorrow morning. They may want to do a quick exam every dr is different.
    But otherwise you can lose your plug weeks before baby comes.
    Baby should be safe as always :-)

    Provided your waters didn't break as well everything is fine and normal - as pp said you can lose it weeks before and it can even grow back

    No, you'll be fine. I lost my plug at 34 weeks and I was so unfazed I didn't even tell my DH. DS arrived just after 38 weeks.
