    Default How long after losing your mucous plug did you go into labour?

    Pretty sure I just lost mine, although there wasn't as much as I thought there would be (it was about a 10c piece). Now I'm wondering if I'm likely to go into labour soon or if it could still be a while. I know it's different for everyone but I would love to hear other's experiences

    DS1-I lost it once contractions had started, had him 4 hours later.

    DS2-I lost it the day after a s&s, I was then induced 4 days later-no signs of labour besides being 4cm.

    DS1 9am mon, had him 5pm the following day. I didn't lose it all at once, it came in drips & drabs.

    DS2 11am tue, had him 2:20am wed. Same again, just little pieces at a time.

    Started feeling contractions a couple hours after... Didn't go into active labour til 24 hours after DS1 & about 10 hours with DS2.

    I lost mine during pre-labour. It was also not a "I'm pretty sure" moment it was a "omg there it is" moment.

    Though I've heard you can lose bits here and there and it might mean nothing. For me it was still about 24 hours till she was born.

    I went into labour within a couple of days of starting to lose my mucus plug. I knew it was definitely my mucus plug and it was blood stained. Very exciting!

    Good luck!
