  • Actually it doesn't mean anything. I went today and I am 2cm and 60% effaced (thinned) still have my plug intact. With my 4th I sat at 90% effaced and 2 cm for 5 weeks. it varies for every woman. I also didn't lose my plug until I was in active labor with my 4th. It can mean labor is soon or not. Don't want to burst your bubble, but also don't want you to anticipate things coming faster than they might.

  • I had 3 vaginal deliveries and I never noticed when I lost my plug with any of them!

  • This actually tells you very little as far as when you will dilate or when you will go into labor.
