  • I just lost mine these past few days. I'm 38 wks. and it doesn't seem like labor is imminent, but you never know. I've heard the mucus plug can actually grow back!

  • With my second son- within 24 hours (I was 28 weeks pregnant with him). With my third son- within 6 hours (I was 29 weeks pregnant and on strict bedrest at the hospital).

  • With my first i didn't lose it before labor..i can only assume it came out sometime during labor. this time around i have been losing pieces of it for weeks now.
    It is not an indication of labor starting soon.
