  • With my son I lost it at 35-36 weeks. It happened first thing in the am. I right away called into work, thought I would be popping a kid out soon. Not the case I went all the way to 38 weeks.

  • I lost my mucus plug when I was 40w3d along and I finally had her the following day. Pretty much my mucus plug started my contractions and dilation.

  • I was at the grocery store, I had to use the restroom and I noticed the mucus, it was approximately 1 week before the labor.

  • Mine was more of just a discharge so I never really noticed it... doc said it was normal though.

  • I didn't think I had lost mine, because I kept looking for some BIG ordeal.. but apparantly mine came out little by little. I was induced at 39 weeks and 2 days and she said I had no plug.

  • I started losing mine about 4-5 days before the birth. It can regenerate itself though, so it might not mean anything is happening.
