  • You could go into labor anytime from now until 40+ weeks. I would do a lot of walking!! That is what I did! Good luck and congrats!

  • If your water breaks....then yes go to the ER. Go walking .....clean your floors ......have sex......chances are you can go into labor anytime from now until a week after your due date.

  • you are very close mama! brown on the muscous plug is a sure sign that you'll go into labor very soon! GL

  • Maybe. You can also lose your plug and not go into labor for a couple of weeks. Every woman is different.

  • Start walking chick. Walking helps a great deal if you want your labor to start.

    The mucous plug doesn't mean you're going into labor right now....just that it will happen soon.

  • I lost my plug in the morning with both pregnancies and went into labor that night with both. It does not happen this way for everyone, but it's very possible! Good luck!
