    Default Mucus plug

    I'll be 37 weeks pregnant tomorrow, and have just lost what I assume to be my mucus plug, it was thick and 'snot like' (sorry but it's the best way I can describe it!) how long after you lost your plug did you go into labour? I only saw my OB yesterday, I was 1cm dilated and my cervix was softening. Thanks!

    I lost mine at 39 weeks and expected labour to start with a few hours. About 4 hours later I started to get tiny contractions. Turns out it was false labour & I didn't go into proper labour until a week later.

    What I assume was my plug (a lot of mucus and some blood) was the start of my very very very long (in-and-out) labour. It was then I realised I was contracting ever so slightly but regularly. DD was born about 60 hours later.

    I'm 39 weeks and the OB thinks I would have lost part of mine by now (1-2cm dilated, and I have had quite a lot of discharge so haven't noticed).
    I started to lose more after an internal on Tuesday morning and I'm still not in labour, and may not go into labour before induction on the 30th according to OB. I think you can go weeks after losing it and not go into labour!

    I think I'm just hoping this means I go sooner rather than layer! But it seems it not mean much at all given that she's inducing me on the 4th anyway. I had another bloody show last might though, so ill just assume that my body is getting prepared to do what it needs to do in its own time.
