  • Mine came out about 7 hours in to a 10 hour labor, when my water broke - like a champagne cork. I had no discharge, no bloody show, no nothin' until the day I went into labor.

  • There is absolutely no way that your delivery date can be determined based on a phone call! Even with a cervical check there is no way of knowing how long it will be so dont hold your breath! I lost mine at 31 weeks (I was 2 cm dilated at that point) and I was induced 7 1/2 weeks later when I was 5 cm. Based on my dilation, not based on the fact that I lost my plug, they said at 31 weeks that I would not make it to 36 weeks and I did!

  • Hello
    I'm glad you lost your mucus plug!! that's great, but for me I lost it about 2 weeks before he actually came! Nicholas was just born 5 days ago, I had a great experience, I hope you do too!! When is your BF coming out to be with you??
    take care
