  • With my first child, I lost my plug exactly 11 days before my water broke. And yes, I lost it off an on throughout those 11 days. I gave birth 6 days before my due date. With my 2nd child, I lost my plug around 2wks before I delivered. Again, I delivered 6 days early and lost the plug off and on throughout those 2wks.

  • I can honestly say I dont "remember" loosing it with either of my kids. For me it came out a little at a time. So I cant really answer your question based on my experience. I do have a friend that lost hers like 8 week before she had her baby.

  • Its really gunna be different with everyone.
    I started loosing plug and began early labor but it took 3 more days to have him. But my last pregnancy I started looking plug at 38 weeks and my baby was a week late! Im now 19 weeks pregnant and Ive wiped some mucus already.
