  • I never lost mine and one night my water broke. My sister lost hers and 2 weeks later (way past her due date) had to be induced.

  • I was already in labor when I lost mine. I got ready and left for the hospital at that point. My baby was born about 30 minutes after I was admitted to the hospital, which would have been no more than 2 or 3 hours after I lost it!

  • Well with my first baby I lost it about a week before my water started leaking (6 weeks early)
    With my second I can't remember
    With this one, I am not completely sure but I think I may have lost some of it last night, unless I was seeing things. In either case, my baby has dropped even more and I think that I will give birth before the week is up.

  • I honestly dont know. I never had any bloody show or anything til I was in actual labor. If I did lose it ahead of time it must have been very slowly because I never noticed.

  • I was losing mine for 1 to 2 weeks before I went into labor. I was slowly dilating so that's why I was losing it, but I would say that it was completely gone 2 days before I started labor. That's when I had some bloody show start since my doctor scrapped my membranes (monday) and was in the hospital in labor 2 days later (very early wednesday morning).
