  • It can happen. Don't focus on how dilated you are, or if the baby's dropped. My son didn't drop until my water broke! That's not uncommon. Some people go into labor when they are only dilated to 1, some can be dilated to 4 for days before going into labor!

  • your prolly not gonna pop tomorow than- some women dont loose there plug I didnt for my first and havent yet- Its rare when a woman actually goes on there due date- as for the baby not dropping Im not sure- this may sound weird but play with your nipples alot- playing with your nipples can induce labor- Also take a bath and masturbate, the orgasm will cause you to contract- sex is over rated more often than not when your 10 mos pregnant the last thing you can do is get off to sex- so try masturbating.

  • My son turned from being breech to head down, dropped and I lost my mucous plug within 2 huurs all 12 hours before my water started leaking and I went into labor. I had him about 18 hours after the mucous plug came out.

  • With my first I didn't lose any mucos until I went into labor at 38 weeks. My water started leaking and some mucos plug came out.

    With my second I didn't lose any mucos at ALL and I finally went into labor at 40 weeks 4 days. Even in labor I didn't lose anything and my water didn't leak. The doctor broke my water and 10 minutes later she was here!
