Did you lose your mucus plug? How long after did you go into labor? adult content

It's only marked as TMI in case a mucus plug is TMI to someone lol. I was at my doctors on Thursday and I'm 1cm dilated and 70% effaced and I'm pretty sure I lost or am losing my mucus plug since I've had some bloody mucus discharge for the past 24 hours or so. I know that the only thing it really means is that I'm progressing, I'm just curious to see how soon after losing your mucus plug you went into labor. :-)

  • You mucus plug can regenerate itself. So no way of telling from that. I never noticed mine lost at all with my girls and so far nothing with this one either.

  • I honestly never knew when I lost it, or if I did. I have two boys and have yet to see one... With this one I've still got 10 or 12 weeks left and I've been loosing mucus slowly for the last month, so I think that just tends to be how I work...

    That said, I've also never gone in to labor... When my water breaks, we induce.

  • I started losing it around 28 or so regenerates so it's not really an indication of labor :-/ I was induced with my baby at 37 weeks due to medical problems
