  • It took a couple weeks for mine to completely come out. And I think it was two or so weeks after it came out that I went into labor. I think I was 30 weeks or so maybe 32 weeks. And he was born at 36. Everyone is different tho. Ask your doctor to be sure.

  • weeks
    what you "lost" today could had also just been a increase in discharge .
    you can also lose your plug many times .

  • if there was blood in it (a bloddy show-just tinges with blood) it can start within 24-48 hours but just a reg old plug can take weeks to come out fully

  • dont you hate it when ppl say oh it could be discharge?? lol, theres a big difference between them, but you can lose it for weeks, or days just if it is pinkish/reddish you need to call your ob, or if your having other problems like preterm issues then u need to call. im 30 weeks and lost pretty sure all of mine yesterday all day long and i have preterm issues

  • ok look it is nothing to hate when people say discharge do you knwo how many times i thought i lost my plug but yes it was in fact just a serious increase in discharge
    so YES miss know it all it can infact be discharge
    i was having pre labor issues from 28 weeks had it stopped 4 times and put on bed rest for the whole pregnancy . guess what it was still an increase in discharge . dont you just hate it when others try to cut down someone elses advice isnt it annoying and freaking childish ???

  • My Dr told me last week after I lost mine that if you dont go into labor within 24-48 hours then the plug can and most likely will regenerate.
