  • Some women do not go into labor until weeks after losing their plug...some women it takes days...other women just hours...Alert your OB that you believe you've lost some if it and see what actions they say you should take.

  • after losing your mucas plug it could be 24 hours to 4 weeks before you go it labor

  • it can take up to 4 weeks after you losing it, and at 36 weeks you are full term so even if you did go into labor soon everything would be ok and the baby wouldnt have to stay in the nicu, but i would make sure i had my bags packed and everything in order just in case you did go in to labor. Has the baby dropped yet?and was it bloody at all or just clear
