I'm a FTM and I'm due in 6 days, & today my boyfriend checked my cervix like he does every few days (we got the O.K and he was taught how to by my doctor) today when he did that a thick mucus like substance came out, which I'm assuming is my plug.. and was stuck to his finger, he went and washed and sanitize like he does every time and checked again and more came out. I'm 1 & a half cm dilated last time I went to my doctor, and have been having horrible back pain the past 3 days which is very new in my pregnancy,

How long before labor?
I wanna hear other peoples stories and hear there experiences :)

Losing your mucus plug isn't necessarily an indication of labor, it can regenerate itself.

I lost my mucus plug at 36 weeks with dd2. I had what I thought were gas pains for 4.5 days. Then I was SURE they weren't gas pains as they got horribly worse and frequent. I went to the hospital and literally 15 minutes later, had her! Good luck!

Their experiences, not there*


The mucus plug regenerates. It can be weeks after it's initially lost before labor starts. Especially as a ftm, chances labor is still a ways off. Or, it could happen tonight. There really is no way to know.

Do you know the signs of early labor?

With my first, I lost my mucus plug and went into labor the next day. With my second, I lost bits and pieces for weeks.

Yes the plug can regenerate but with all three of my kids I lost my mucus plug and had bloody show the day/night before going into labor all three times (@ 39 & 40 weeks).

It can regenerate. I never saw it even during labor with my first two. My third for 5 weeks I had big, small pieces and some with blood.
