Hello, I was wondering. Is it possible to have REAL labor contractions without losing your plug, membrains, having a bloody show or water breaking?

Thank for the help!

  • Yep, I didn't have any of that prior to going into labor and giving birth to my second son at 34 weeks.

  • You sure can.. I did loose my plug with first child about a month before going into labor, my water NEVER broke on its own with any of my 3 pregnancies and I did not loose my plug with baby 2 or 3 before going into labor.

  • Yes, I didn't have any of that. My water didn't break until after I'd been in the hospital for 2 hours.
