  • Hmm I've dilated 2cm's...and I'm slowly losing mine I didn't even know til the doctor checked me yesterday and she pulled some bloody/mucus discharge.

  • Yes you can. Some women don't lose it until labor. Some women lose over time and don't realize it because it can seem just like discharge.

  • I didn't lose mine. Well I guess it came out during labour but I didn't lose it before. That was with my 2nd. I was dialated to 3cm before I was actually in labour or at least active labour. With my first I lost it like a month before I delivered.
