39 weeks pregnant and still haven't lost mucous plug?

I'm 39 weeks pregnant and still haven't lost my mucous plug, but my breasts have been leaking constantly. They leaked early in the pregnancy as well but they didn't leak as consistently as they are now. I've also had about one bowel movement a day this week when earlier I was lucky to have one bowel movement a week. I had my ob check yesterday and the doctor said my cervix was softening but was not dilated yet. Should I be worried that I haven't lost my mucous plug yet? This is my first pregnancy please help :)

I didn't lose my mucous plug until the evenin of my due date, and went into labor next mornin, she was born at 8:45 that night. Everyone loses theirs different, some ladies I think start losing theirs at 35 wks, but It's perfectly normal not to until right before labor
