How long after u pass the plug did u go into labor? adult content

I have been passing my plug since thursday, more frequently today though. I'm also due today. Everytime I've gone to the bathroom today though I've passed a bit more of the plug...so am I going into labor in the middle of the night?

  • Mine came out all at once. Which was a tuesday night I believe. I wound up getting induced on friday morning bc they said they fluids around the baby were too low. Not much help I guess, huh? Lol. GL! Hope the birth goes smoothly :)

  • There is no set time. Every labor and delivery is different as is the onset of every labor and delivery. It's not going to be very long though, that much is for sure.

  • I heard usually its within a 7-8 day time frame after you pass your plug that you go into labor. Not sure how true that is, but thats what my MIL told me, lol.

  • With my first I lost it a couple times because I had my membranes stripped. I didn't go into labor on my own, I was induced.

    With my son I lost bits and pieces of it for about 4 days and then went into labor.

    HOWEVER, losing the mucus plug can happen weeks out from the birth. You're very close, mamma, just keep your mind off labor as much as possible and keep up your daily routines :) good luck!

  • I lost mine several weeks before I went into labor with my first born.. I was induced for the second and the third, I don't remember. I went into labor 2 weeks early with him..
