  • I always had my babies within 48 hours of losing the mucus plug.

  • Some women lose their mucus plug slowly and some all at once. After you lose mucus plug you could have your baby tomorrow or even another two weeks. If small amount you may be just starting to lose it and sometimes you will see globs in the toilet bowl. With my first I lost mine in like two days, and had her in about a week after I lost it, actually about 5days. It is one of those things that yes you are getting close, but not sure how close. Annoying I know.

  • I just lost mine and it was more like a period. My brother says my belly is rock hard and I should be going in shortly. I always thought it was a clot like thing, but I guess theres different variations of a plug for all women.

  • It varies, but you should go into labor fairly soon. I lost mine, and had my first contraction an hour later, my son was born 23 1/2 hrs later.
