I am 36 weeks pregnant and getting thick yellow discharge. Am i going into labor soon ?

I m 36 weeks pregnant & have lost 3 clear/white pieces of mucus over the past month, 2 of those within the past week. Having horrible lower back pain , labor stopped at 33 weeks, still getting uncomfortable contractions, 1cm dilated, starting to thin out, & now having LOTS of thick off white/yellow discharge. What does all of this mean? Will I be going into labor soon? I am 28 years old, this is my 4th pregnancy , but my 3rd child. My first son was born about 1 month early 11 1/2 years ago. This baby is my 1st girl, and at 33 weeks pregnant, dr s said she was measuring at 35 weeks.

Hi
You could go into labour soon.Esp since you have ahistory of preterm labout.You need to have a pv examination.Ig your cervix is thinning out,then you will mostly go into early labour.Go to the hospital.

I m 38 weeks with my first. On the 13th late at night i had a little spotting. Everyday after that i find slight light brown discharge only when i wipe. It comes and it goes. Last ine was also light browndischarge this time it was tinged with a little blood . Mucousy like stringed discharge that is. A week ago the doctor told me i was 1cm dilated. Could it be that I m losing my mucus plug and dilating. My appointment was rescheduled for friday due to the fact that he won t be in today or tomorrow. Still feel my babys movements so I m not worried. I m just wanting to know how many cm i am now but cant find out til friday. Worried i might go into labor soon. How long after the mucus plug dislodges when can i go into labor could it be days or hours. I feel some pressure near my vaginal area not too bad. Only when i m laying down and when i move certain way it hurts. I m extremly sore other that i feel fine

I am getting a uterine biopsy soon and have a very low tolerance for pain. I have never had children and my cervix is tight. I am 59 years old. I was give Cytotec to take the night before. I understand this can cause severe cramping. When I did get my period before menopause the cramps were severe - I had to take heavy doses of Advil 5 days BEFORE it started and then Darvon on the first 2 days. I thought for the biopsy I would take Mobic 5 days before and then Percocet a hour before the biopsy ( I have discussed this with my dr.) Any other suggestions? I am a wreck! Thank you!
