  • No. I dialated to 2 cm with my DS around 37 or so weeks and never lost my mucous plug. And just because you are semi-dialated, doesn't mean you are in labor. LOL. I thought since I was dialated to 2cm that I would be in labor soon and my DS waited until his due date to show up!

  • No. You can be dilated and still have your mucus plug.
