how long after losing your mucus plug did you go into labor???

yesterday I went to the hospital because I was having contractions. They were small so they sent me home and told me to just relax and they would be fine. So I did. This morning I went to the restroom and noticed that my mucus plug came out. So now I am wondering how long now??? I know everyones different but just curious. :)

  • EVERYONE IS different. I have known people who went weeks after it came out. It also depends on how far along you are. Hopefully it is soon!! Good luck.

  • With my first two never saw it.Even during delivery. This time I have lost some two weeks ago and a big chunk on Tuesday and more each day. It can regenerate itself. Still pregnant.

  • My co-worker lost her mucous plug and two weeks later had her baby on her due date.
    Me personally, I never paid attention which is bad I suppose. The first time I was overdue, so I had to get induced. The second time, I just had the "bloody show" but no mucous plug.

  • You are right it does vary. But with my DS It was about 3 days and with DD it wasn't even 24 hours before she was born.
