  • well just remember, losing your mucus plug does not mean you are in labor. but if you start doing some housework or go walking, it may trigger it. If you don't go into labor within the next few hours, the mucus plug will grow back. Then you will lose it again. I lost 4 of them with my daughter. Good Luck...

  • I didn't know the mucus plug grows back in a few hours. When I lost my plug with my son, I had him 3 days later and never lost another one.

    But like she said, go walking or do some housecleaning. When I lost mine with my son, I walked the mall for a few hours and then the next day my water broke.

  • Have LOTS and LOTS of sex allowing the sperm to set on your cervix for as long as possible each time to ripen your cervix before your induction.

    I may have to be induced to because of high blood pressure and from everything I've read if your cervix isn't ripened the chances of a failed indution and a c-section are HUGE.

    Also try other natural methods. My doctor gave us the go ahead to try nipple stimulation, pineapple, walking, "labor inducing egg plant parmesean" (you can get the recipe at ABCnews.com), and sex and other natural methods because she knows how bad I don't want a medical induction.

    GOOD LUCK!
