Thanks for writing to us

33 weeks pregnancy with discharge of mucous plug and back pain indicates preterm labour pains

It is better get an ultrasound done to see the funneling of the cervix or get pelvic examination done by a gynecologist to see the cervical opening.

Till then take strict bed rest
Isoxsuprine hydrochlorode and antispasmodics should be taken under doctor's guidance and prescription

Regular BP check up is required

Amount of liquor and approximate fetal weight can be calculated by ultrasound

Best wishes
Take care
