BTDT moms that have knowingly lost your mucous plug - how long afterwards did you go into labor? Weeks? Days? Hours?


I have been losing mine all day in huuuuge globs. I started having inconsistant contractions almost as soon as I woke up this morning and I feel nauseous. I am hoping all of these things combined are a good sign. With DD, my water broke so I'm assuming I lost my mucous plug sometime during labor or when I didn't realize it in the hospital.

It was usually lost over a period of either a few days to THE day. This one I never noticed loosing it and I was on the WATCH for it! (I did do a YI treatment that ended a day and a half before my water broke and I did notice that my discharge seemed rather heavy for YI treatment and I did have some stringy mucous in it too, but nothing blatently obvious it was my plug.)

With my son I lost it the same day that my water broke. With my daughter I lost it something like 2-3 days before labor started. With both I was 1cm when labor started.
