1cm dilated 60% effaced & lost mucus plug


I'm 35 weeks... the Dr's didn't tell me much. This is my first baby. I was having severe ligament pain which was causing contractions. I was kept overnight at the hospital but then finally sent home. They didn't give me much to work with aside from the information in the title... is labour imminent or could I still stay OK for my last 5 weeks?!

I lost my mucus plug last night... 1 day after my hospital stay. I can't help but wonder if it only came out because the Dr checked my cervix.

Anyone else have this experience?
