  • You never can tell, DS was born a week after I lost mine, I've known people that went 3 weeks after losing theirs and people that went into labor days after losing theirs.

  • Mucus plus regenerate themselves. So, it could be tonight (if you start contracting, call your doc/OB/L&D immediately, they may want to stop you since you're only 35 weeks), it coule be 7 weeks.

  • No telling, it could be tomorrow and like the last mom said it could be 7 weeks.

  • Its different for everyone. They told me within 3 days. I lost mine June 10th with my first. I remember it was the day of my baby shower. I had her June 27th. So its always different.

  • Well...I lost at least part of mine at about 32 or 33 weeks and I am now almost 41 weeks. LOL. I wouldn't count on that being a sure sign that delivery is soon.

    My OB told me that it will try to "grow back" and you can expect to "leak mucus" until delivery. Gross, I know, but I guess it is what it is.
