  • you can tell your OB at your next appointment, but that's really it. i lost mine almost 3 weeks before my ds was due. it happens, but doesn't mean you're close to labor or anything.

  • you'll be fine. i actually ended up being induced with my ds 3 weeks after i lost my plug. with my dd i didn't even know i lost it.

    In some pregnancies labor starts a few days afterwards and in other cases it doesn’t start for a few weeks. There really is no way we can suggest any pattern or consistency in the timing of when you lose your mucous plug to when labor starts.

    if you wanted to read the article. GL!

  • I would do nothing it can replenish itself since the cervix is always making more mucous
