How long after losing your mucous plug did you go into labor?

I have been losing my plug over the course of the past couple of days. Just curious as to how long it took you to go into labor? I know there is no exact answer to when I will go into labor....Just hoping...

*crosses fingers*

  • i never lost my plug but, i know alot of women who did it varies, some women it was over a month and yes your mucous plug can regenerate, some women lost it right before labor... loosing your plug is not a sign that it will happen soon... :)

  • I lost mine while I was in labor. I guess that's not much help.
