Two weeks ago I lost my mucus plug!

I am due Feb 2nd. Two weeks ago i lost my mucus plug! and i have been having show since then. This is really frustrating. i feel like things should be happening but they are not. I also has very severe pain in my hips at night which makes sleeping near impossible. And when i go to the loo i have a pain that feels like something is going to fall out of me but that "bang" hits bone and stops hurting. I am starting to worry that something is wrong. Although the baby still wriggles but nowhere near as much as i think i should expect.

Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. It sounds as if your body is getting itself organised to go into labour very soon. Try not to get too tired, get plenty of rest, get some exercise such as swimming or walking and eat small meals regularly. At term the baby can slow down but you still should feel at least 10 movements per day. Best wishes, Alex
