:confused:I have the outpatient observation chart for a 37 week gestation.....mom came in because she lost her mucus plug and was put on the floor for monitoring for a few hours. No ctx's, no loss of fluid, no srom.

what would I use as the dx code on this?? I am really not good at the OB's.....any help would be greatly appreciated

try 648.xx other antepartum condition. Sorry I can't remember the last two! We use that a lot when the patient goes to the ER with possible rupture of membranes, possible contractions, etc.
