  • I lost my mucus plug about a week before I was induced, but even before I was induced I still had no signs of going into labor on my own, so opinions can vary, it could be anytime now, or a week or more away!

  • I've been losing my mucus plug since 35 wks, I'm now 38 wks..
    I just haven't had any BH/Contractions or the brown spotting..
    I hope it gets closer though. ~ Idk, you could start today, or in a week.. :/
    Congratz and gl! :)

  • spotting is most likely from your exam today. Loosing your plug has nothing to do with when baby will arrive. It can regenerate at any time. The only way you'll know when baby is coming is when you are in active labor, even BH contractions can be timable and can cause false hope. Just be patient, you are almost there!
