How long after you lost your mucus plug did you go into labor?

I know it varies, can be rite away or a while...
and also, is it true that you make a new one if you don't go into labor within so long?

  • I don't have a clue when I lost it with my first two... But I'm pretty sure I lost it about 5 weeks ago with this one, and I haven't started to labor yet...

  • mucus plug came out after they induced me with my first, i lost it probably 7 weeks before i had my other 2 and was dilated for atleast 4 weks before they came.

  • with my second child I lost it on a tuesday sometime during the day and ended up going into labor early wednesday morning at around 2:30 so i guess technically 12 hours give or take. I never lost my mucus plug with my first child.
