  • If you have lost your mucous plug it can still be weeks before any real labor. Generally your plug coming out means you have started to dilate some - but plenty of women dilate weeks before actual labor.

  • I kinda hate to tell you his cuz I know the "show" is a very exciting time! You kinda feel like something is Finally happening and its like proof your near the end! My mucus plug came out a month befor the baby. Yes a whole month and probably a few days extra too lol. I was all exited and thinking the baby would come early. Turns out as said above I was just begining to dialate and wasnt even a 1 yet haha! It is a good sign though. Feel good that you are moving right along lol. Congrats and good luck on the new baby!

  • I never saw it with either pregnancy, but was told by my doctor that it could be days or weeks before the onset of real labor.

  • My plug came out five days before baby's birth and I had contractions that night until birth midnight monday night. It's when your water breaks that timing of delivery is most important.

  • My plug came out a week or so before I went into labor (no blood). My water broke about 5:30 AM the day I went into labor, about 8PM I started having contractions. I'd say about 6PM the amniotic fluid started turning pink, and got bloody from there.
