  • You are close. However, losing the mucus plug is not a definite sign of labor. If you do not go into labor soon, your mucus plug will regrow causing you to lose a few mucus plugs. It is completely normal. Go walking. that helps with bringing on labor. Oh and SEX!! LOL

    good luck

  • I lost my mucus plug the day I went into labor at 39 1/2weeks. Some people on here just want to be mean and say well that doesn't mean nothing, blah blah. Well, ur already 38weeks so it might!!!!!!!!! like right now I'm 32 1/2 weeks and have been having this stringy discharge for 1 -1/2weeks and it could be my mucus plug but they say u can lose it a few times before birth but ur already closer.
