  • Call your doctor and ask them what to do- he may want you in his office, or at the hospital- call the doctor follow his advice, not advice from strangers on the internet with your precious baby.

  • depends on how far along you are. My friend lost hers at 7 months and was 2 weeks over due before the baby came.

  • You can lose the plug many times and it can replenish itself. Losing your plug does not indicate at all when you will go into labor. It just indicates that you have some cervical changes. Dilation and effacement mean nothing as some women walk around at 4 cm for weeks, others go from 0-10 in an hour. So don't let them stick their fingers in your vagina!

  • iT SAYS ON YOUR PROFILE YOU R DOC TOLD YOU THAT YOU COULD GO INTO LABOR AT ANY TIME, SO IF THERE IS DISCHARGE - MAYBE YOU NEED TO CALL HIM- HE MIGHT NEED TO CHECK YOU. GOOD LUCK.

  • Its not an indication of labor and neither is being dilated or not. You can lose the plug weeks before labor and have it grow back but you can also go into labor without ever losing it. Try to relax and let your body do what it needs to do.
