Just curious how soon before labor you lost your mucous plug, if you noticed it happening? Also, was it after a cervical check or anything, or did it come out totally unexpectedly?
I lost mine this weekend, right at 37 weeks. I also had my first cervical check the end of last week, and found out I’m 80% effaced and 1-2 cm. dilated. I don’t want to read too much into any of that, because I know none of those are reliable indicators for how soon you will go into labor, but I was curious what others’ experiences were.

My best friend lost hers at 36 weeks. It grew back and she lost it again at 39 weeks. She had her baby at 40w5d.

@Sunshine09: Yep, it’s actually not that uncommon for them to regenerate. That’s why they’re not super reliable for determining when you’ll go into labor…..

I had some mucousy dishcharge around 35ish weeks if I remember correctly. I did have bloody mucous the day before I went into labor, but that was 41 weeks. It’s possible to lose it and it come back, and it’s also possible to lose part of it but not all of it.

I lost mine the night before i gave birth. That night, i had some “tinges” of something going on. By the wee hours of the morning, my contractions were 5 mins apart. After a long 21 hr labor, my beautiful boy was born 🙂

I lost part of mine at 36 weeks and than the doc mentioned it at the next check up that she had some on her glove. I am now 40 weeks 6 days and have not seen any since!
With DD I did not see it at all and gave birth at 39 weeks, 6 days. Sometimes it comes out, sometimes it doesn’t!

I can’t remember with my dd and 2nd ds but with my 2st son, I lost it that day and went into labor that night. I have been looking for it this time and so far, nothing. I had some strong contractions last week and thought that was it but it wasn’t.
