Very sharp cervix pains and mucus plug?

When I move around or when my baby moves I'm getting sharp pains in my cervix, very sharp that make me stop in my tracks! Iv now just lost some mucus plug. It didn't have any blood in. Should I be worrying? Could labour be extremely close?

It might be worth calling the midwife/ hospital just to get their opinion, but it could be a good sign. I had very sharp pains towards the end of my second pregnancy which they later suggested was because baby had his hand in front of his head when he engaged (was born Superman style!).

I have rang they have told me could be hours days or weeks, I'm having an induction in 2wks tho and ideally I'd like to him arrive after Christmas as he needs heart surgery and I don't want to be away from my other children over Christmas but of course I have no control really it's just my preference lol

My back began to hurt after this and it was coming and going. I prepared my bag and went to bed for it all to wear off Hmm

My little one arrived a week after my plug came out. From what I've read it doesn't mean anything as labour could still be hours or weeks away!

This happened to me and waters broke next morning! I was 39 weeks, first baby. Good luck!

I lost my mucus plug and gave birth the same day - however I was only 21 weeks so the circumstances are totally different. Good luck OP.

Went on for weeks like this for me, but my body does this and then i lose bloody show for 2 weeks. Its different for everyone. I hope he hangs on until after Christmas for you.
