  • I lost mine over 3 weeks ago and still no baby. My OB tells me that if you don't deliver within a short amount of time it grows back. I got so excited when I lost it and now I'm just wishing for labor LOL.

  • With me everything happened within 24 hours of giving birth, but my friend lost hers like 2 weeks before anything.

  • I lost mine about 8am, and by 6pm, my water broke. No contractions, so I had to be induced. Baby came at 8:07 the next AM!
