  • It sounds like your bloody show. It very well may be labor. If you are having contractions I would say its definitely labor. But no your water hasn't broke. It will be continous fluid when it does. Like pee. Like a stream coming out when you pee. But your water doesn't have to break to be in labor. I've had 2 kids and water never did break until the drs did it for me halfway through labor.

  • It took me a week to loss mine at 35 weeks and they said its no big deal the plug won't determine when labor comes the fact that you're farthest along it probably will been things are starting for you if your worried your water is leaking go in they'll check if not wait until the contractions come I lost mine w my son at 38 wks and he didn't come until 41 if you bleedany amnt other than just in the mucous go in its always bbetter safe than sorry if they send you home relax and wait for a more sure sign:)

  • Yes, you lost your plug. No, your water didn't break. And unless you are having contractions bad, you aren't in labor. You may still have a week or two to go.

  • To some of you: Losing your plug does NOT mean you are in labor. It can be lost and reform many times. Mine was lost 2 weeks before I went into labor.
