  • I lost mine like two weeks before I had my dd. But honestly, if you were due last week, it's not that far off lol...

  • i agree with PP. labor could not start for days after losing your mucus plug but if you are 41 weeks, it should be within a week, possibly 2, unless your due date is off, which is definitely possible.

    i had my son about 4 days after i first started seeing bits of mucus plug. i had him at 41 weeks.

    oh and being 1 cm is good! i was less than 1 cm the last time i was checked, just days before i had my son.

  • Could be tomorrow, could be a few weeks. All that the loss of your plug means is that your cervix is dilated 1-2 cm. That's it.
