  • Get ready its coming. Usually within 24 to 48 hours. So rest up. I lost mine on the 12th and had my daughter the 14th. My SIL lost hers on the 15th and had her son the 16th.

  • I was already in labor when I lost mine. My son was born about 3 1/2 hours later.

  • I only lost it with my first (at least as a whole) it was that evening, within hours. But I did research it durring my other pregnancies out of curiosity and found out that it can "grow" back. so even if you lose it, it's not a sure sign of labor because it can come back!!!!!
