I am 39 weeks and 5 days and I just lost my MUCUS PLUG!!!  OMG!!  Sorry this is my first child and that was a little weird, but exciting to me.  Does this mean I may go into labor soon or what?

I'd call the doc right away and see what they say.

It still may take even up to a few weeks to go into labor. I lost mine 2 weeks before with both boys. Good luck!!!!

You may...or you may not.  :)  Sorry that it isn't more definitive.  Most likely it will be within the week and could even be tomorrow.

Its a good sign but doesnt mean you're going into labor...

Strange fact about mucus plugs- they can come back.....

If what I read is correct, the next two to three days you could go into labor... Congrats!!!

I you sure it was your plug?  If so it could mean you are going into labor soon.  But it doesn't have to.  It's possible for the mucus plug to be replaced if the time isn't right.

My niece lost her mucus plug over a period of a week and had her baby shortly after. I lost mine and had mine about 1 week later. Are you dilated any? Has doc said anything about your cervix thinning? These are all signs it is coming soon. Sounds like your body is def. ready.

I lost mine like 2-3 weeks before I went into labor. I didn't even know I lost it until I went into the doc for an appt and she was like "Oh, so you lost your mucus plug huh?" All I could say was "I did?" Good luck and let us know what happens.

Also, I was like 3cm dialated for about a month and a half before I went in to be induced. He didn't want to come out. lol
