If you noticed you lost your mucus plug. How long after losing it did you have your baby?

I just lost mine after over a day of 7-10 minute contractions but not really painful ones and not getting any stronger.

Yesterday I was checked and was not dilated.

  • The longest was 3 weeks, the shortest, 2 days. It varies with every woman and every pregnancy

  • I lost my and it was at least 14 days before I went into labor. I think it could be weeks (I forget how many) after that you could go into labor.

  • I lost mine three days before I had her. The day after I lost mine I had my doctor appointment and I was excited because I thought she would keep me. I wasn't dialated or anything. Than two days later my water broke! I guess it's different for everyone, that's what makes yours so special.
