    Default Did you lose your mucus plug?

    Just curious if everyone loses their mucus plug before a spontaneous birth?
    I didn't with my first. He was induced at 42 weeks.
    I did with my second, spontaneous birth at 40+5.

    Ds1 yes it was a spontaneous labour.

    Ds2 waters broke but labour didn't start so was induced, never saw my plug but obviously it came out at some point.

    Dd I had a csection.

    Ds1, I honestly don't remember. My labour was spontaneous and my waters had to be broken.

    Ds2, yes. I remember it happened a bit before I went in to labour (edit: I lost my mucas plug then had a S&S, went into labour a few hours after that).
