  • With my second, I went to my OB appointment at 39 weeks 3 days and was not dilated or effaced at all and the baby had not dropped. I lost my plug two days later, went into labor the next night, and the baby must have dropped at some point during labor because she didn't beforehand but she came out, lol. So it was true for me.

  • Oh, sure!
    There is every possibility, every combination for circumstances.

  • I hope thats true because my baby hasn't dropped yet and I'm 38 weeks. I lost little bits of my mucus plug but by a little I mean a tiny bit. I am going crazy! lol
