2 Bumps

How far along were you when you lost your "plug"

Just curious, I'm at 35 weeks now and I haven't lost it yet. Dr said I'm considered full term at 37 weeks and boy am I ready to have this kid already!!!

  • Never did that I noticed. 37w1d with my first, 34w3d with my 2nd.

    Hang in there, you're almost done.

  • I never noticed with either of mine. MY dd was born at 37 and a half weeks, my ds was born a day shy of 36 weeks.

  • I never saw it. Either I didn't pay enough attention or it just never happened to me. Four kids and didn't see it once.

  • I only noticed 2 out of 5. My first was on his due date. The mucus plug, bloody show, and then my water broke all within a few hours and contractions didn't even really start. I went to the hospital and they put me on pitocen. With my fifth, I lost the mucus plug slowly at around 37 wks, I'm not sure. Then I was induced at 39 wks. I'm 37 wks tomorrow with my 6th and nothing's happened and my other pregnancies I never noticed if I lost the plug early.

  • I lost mine about 2 weeks before I was induced, and I was induced 11 days before my due date.

  • I never noticed when I lost my plug. I'm guessing it must have been intact when the labor nurses broke my water at the hospital, and it just washed out with the great tide, but I don't know for sure.
