(TMI) After you lost your mucous plug.....

How long was it until you went into labor? I'm 37 weeks and I was 1cm dilated last week. I'm about 95% sure I lost my mucous plug. It looked like a big chunk of vaseline or snot. (sorry about the grossness!!). There wasn't any blood in it, though. I had my first son at 35 weeks and woke up in labor, lost my mucous plug and my water broke all in about 45 minutes. Everything happened so fast, I didn't really pay attention to everything!!

it can be anywhere from hours to weeks after losing your mucus plug.  some women lose it months before they go into labor.  but i don't remember losing mine last time...

I was in labor within 24 hours of losing the plug, both times.

it was a week for me with my second. with my first i never even lost it. it really doesnt have much to do with actual labor, but it is a sign that your body is getting ready!

i lost most of it a week before i delivered, then i lost the rest (at least what i assume was the rest) the night before i delivered.

I never did lose mine... my son was 10 days late and finally contractions started while I was preparing to go in to be induced.  My water never broke or anything, that kid really just didn't want to come out!

I have heard from friends that it can take anywhere from hours to days or even weeks... as someone else said... but I really am not sure.
