  • No - I have had 3 children and each one was late. With my last child, I didn't dilate until I was 41 weeks and a day. And I lost the mucus plug about a day before the contractions were close enough to allow me to go to the hospital

  • After being in labor for 8 hours, I lost the plug. Baby came out minutes after...
    So I would say I was very dilated, yes.

    I don't do cervix checks during pregnancy so I don't know what I was and how early, for how long...
    I encourage moms to avoid unnecessary interventions, this is an important one!

  • I was dilated to 2 for the last month of my pregnancy but didn't lose my plug until the day before I went into labor.
