Sunday night at 11:45pm I started having severe contractions which lead all the way up to around 8am monday morning… my doctor said I was dilated to a 3 so the kept me to stop me from dilating more and gave me magnesium sulfate, I just got out the hospital Wednesday and Friday morning I passed a small piece of my mucus plug and at 4:45am I passed a very big one… followed by some pressure and a little cramping… what does this mean?
