Yes, more than likely. Be on the lookout for contractions, they'll probably be able to stop labor as long as you go in early enough.
Usually when you get the bloody show, labor is coming very soon. But 35 weeks is kind of early, you'd want to wait at least 3 more weeks at earliest.

Don't stress too much because I kept losing a part of my mucous plug from week 32 on. At first, I thought I just had the biggest plug on earth, but then my Dr. told me that it regenerates. As long as major contractions aren't happening, I think you're good.

LOL! But yeah, when I went into labor with DD2, the night before I had the SMALLEST little bit of pink when I wiped, I mean, it was barely there, but I was 38 weeks and was on high alert for any signs. I was doubtful it meant anything since it was such a little bitty spot of pink, but sure enough 6 hours later I woke up at 4 in the morning with contractions 3-5 minutes apart. So, just be aware and if you start getting regular cramps, time them, and if they are consistent, go ahead and go in. Better safe than sorry, babies lungs are probably not ready to function on the outside just yet.
