  • I lost mine 2 times. It's really gewy and gross honestly I don't know how you can miss it. I don't think you have to be dialated. I think I was about 1cm when I lost mine. Not everyone looses it. Also when you loose it you can go into labor that day or even up to 1 month later (that's what the nurse told me). I'm sure if you google it there is A LOT more information. GOOD LUCK!!

  • You don't have to be dilated but you do have to be effaced some.

    MANY MANY women don't notice it at all because they lose it in the toliet or shower, etc.

    It can be anywhere from a couple of hours to 4 weeks after losing it that you go into labor.

  • I lost my mucus plug slowly over the cours of a week and when it stopped coming I went into labor. I was 3cm dilated 2 weeks before I went into labor
