  • I never noticed with both my girls when my mucus plug came out. Contractions are different for everyone, how you deal with them and the stress level.

  • My mucus plug came out with my first. That's how I knew I was in labor. Every labor is different though, no matter how many kids you have. Just listen to your body. It will definatly tell you.

  • I have 3 kids and I never saw my mucus plugs. As for my contractions......with my first I had back labor and it felt like I was being stabbed and ripped apart......with my second I had normal contractions and they were strong but I handled it a lot better, up until the last hour of labor.......with my last they were the easiest although my labor lasted for 21 hours compared to 4 & 6 with my first 2. Don't get me wrong they hurt but with my first 2 my water was broken first and my last child my water didn't break until 2 hours before I had her.....that's when my labor got really intense. If you still have your water bag intact your contractions are normally not as strong feeling since you have a "cushion" around the baby. But every woman is different and what they feel is always different.

  • i noticed one mucus plug, with 4 pregnancies. the tightening of the belly is all i felt for contractions too. nothing really painful, i never considered drugs.

  • I noticed my mucous plug with all 3 of my babies. Contractions are different for everyone! I have had 3 babies and never had an eipdural and my contractions barely hurt. I guess I just got lucky to have 3 very easy labors!! With my 2nd two my water broke at home but with my first I wasn't even sure I was in labor, I could feel my stomach gettin tight and it didn't let up so I went in. They got a lil more painful at the end but it really wasn't bad at all.

  • Well First of all I got robbed and I'm signing up for TilmannsGirl ' sbirth plan next time!!!
    Second of all, I did notice the mucus plug, and didnt feel any contractions until they were terribly painful. I was hooked up to a monitor and the nurses kept asked if I could feel them and I totally couldnt. (Pre epidural)
