  • I went into labor at 39wks. I started losing my plug at 20wks(little by little). The day after Thanksgiving my contractions was 20min apart and hurting like hell. It stayed that way until Saturday night. Sunday morning they went to 10min apart until Tuesday morning. Tuesday morning they went to 8 min apart, luckily I had a doctor appointment that day, she sent me straight to the L&D. Had dd 4hrs later. My water was broken for me.

  • With my son, I lost the plug and he was born right on his due date. With my daughter, she was two weeks late and I was induced because of no amniotic fluid left. My water did not break with either.
