  • if you really want o be sure, you need to make an appt and ask him to check you.... it could be in a few hours or days, but usually when the dr says within 24 / 48 hours hes right.... just reserch losing mucous plug.

  • Yes, you can lose your mucous plug and not dilate. I did that with my first child. Call him back if your concerned and ask him to check you.
