Lost my mucus plug but no bleeding. This is #4 so I wasn't expecting to drop but baby is lower. I have this constant feeling like I need to poop but I don't actually have to. I'm also 3cm and about 70% effaced.

I've done this enough that I know there is no exact answer, I'm just at that point of really wanting to meet my LO!!

you're definatly making progress, but there is of course no way to know how soon it will be. How much plug and if there was lots of bleeding as well can be an indicator. It seems to me that moms who go into labor after loosing hteir plug either take 1-2 days (or less) or weeks. hopefully you'll be 1-2 days!
