Ok I am 41 weeks and I have lost my mucus plug My OB told me to have sex to induce labor Has anyone ever heard of it? I thought that the mucus plug protected my little one from infection etc...

It's fine as long as your bag of waters is still intact.

Your bag of waters protects baby, not the mucus plug.
Sex is good bc the semen helps thin your cervix and sex can cause dilation.

You can lose your mucus plug multiple times throughout your pregnancy. It really doesn't mean anything.

ok well I was starting to worry b/c I posted on webmd and women really told me off for sugesting sex after the mucus plug saying that my baby was not safe etc... But I figured that if my OB sugested it then it would be safe. Thank you very much for your input.

Very true...I suppose if I wanted it to break anywhere the OB office is a great place. She was telling me I was having contractions and I was like, "I am" haha. I drove myself to the hospital and walked to L&D and got myself all checked in then maybe an hour later I was like, "Oh yeah! I feel the contractions now!!!" They were 30 seconds long and 3 minutes apart. It felt like I was waiting days to get my epidural. When they told me I could finally get it a nurse came in and was like, "You can get your epidural, but there are 5 people ahead of you and it takes at least 10 minutes with each patient" I was ready to scream at her lol but I kept my cool.

Mine broke when I opened door for hubby to come in and grab some more coke to take to our neighbors house since they were getting drunk. As soon as I opened the door I was like crap my water broke lol. It was funny b/c he was so looking forward to drinking that night.
