I am 39 weeks pregnant And I have lost my

Patient: I am 39 weeks pregnant. And I have lost my mucus plug. Should I go to the emergency room?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.39 weeks of pregnancy is term pregnancy where labor can set in anytime. Losing the mucu s plug is a sign that you are entering labor any moment. You may wait for contractions and pain to increase in intensity and frequency and then see the doctor, provided you do not have any water leak, or risk factors and baby movements are good enough.Hope this helped.Regards
