  • could be a matter of days though, not right away you lose it. its a sign getting real close!

    are you sure it was the whole plug and not pieces of it? i was losing pieces and it could take up to weeks to loose the whole thing

  • Could be hours or days. With my first it was 4 days before and I lost it during labor with my second.
