1 Bump

people with 2+ kids. i got a question.

so my doctor confirmed what i thought today. which is i lost my mucus plug. he said that 99% of the time women that are pregnant with at least their 2nd kid will go in labor shortly after losing their plug. i know that it can be the same with your first too, but my question is how long after you lost your plug did you go in labor with your second baby?

  • I lost my plug around 5 days before my doctor induced me. I had many false labor contractions but no real contractions until he finally asked me if I wanted to induce.

  • I lost mine 3 weeks before I went into labor. My doctors were surprised I lasted so long. MY son was determined to stay put

  • I don't remember losing it with my first, but with my second I lost it at 5am and woke up at 7am in labor. 11 hours later I had my daughter :)

  • I honestly never knew when I lost it with the first two. But this is number 3 and I lost it nearly a month ago...

  • I never lost mine until I was already in active labor. That goes for all 6 deliveries
