  • Loss of the mucus plug does not necessarily mean that you are going into labor. There are women that lose their plugs, and then grow a new one back just to lose it again later.

  • if your in labor the contractions will take your breath away..and youll have to stop talking when they come on...they WILL hurt (atleast thats what b/f sister tells me..I have none of my own experience)

  • hug4akiss described transition labor, but you may well be in early labor right now. The mucous plug often signals that labor is soon, but not always. I lost mine 7 days before my first was born and never lost it with the second until I was in the hospital.
