What would you like to do?
Can your water break without losing your mucus plug first?
Yes, I did with my first baby. I was waiting and waiting for that mucas plug to fall out until one night my water broke. Came as a big surprise but I preferred it that way. No thinking oh it is almost time, IT WAS TIME!!

Answer Not unless you are a midwife or doctor. The water is there to protect the mother and baby form infection and breaking it prematurely is …extremely dangerous.
Answer Why would you want to? It helps keep bacteria from entering your uterus. It does not determine when you will go into labor. Some women loose theirs ear…ly and even grows back.
Answer I have had two children, and never noticed the plug. So, you may notice when you lose it, or not.
no you will get stronger.
When you are pregnant you have a mucus plug that is there to stop bacteria entering your uterus and harming the baby. As you approach your due date and your cervix thins… and dilates, the mucus plug can come out. It is just like a big bit of goo. Some women report seeing it fall into the toilet. Some women never notice it go. And sometimes it is still there when you go into labour. You can lose your plug up to two weeks before you go into labour, but it is one of the "signs" that your time is near.
A sign of impending labor and delivery. have your self be evaluated.
right before the onset of labor
After checking with an OB, it is safe to swim in a swimming pool after your mucus plug has come away. Once your waters break, under no circumstances should you sit/swim in an…y stagnant water, even a personal swimming pool. The baby is no longer protected by the amniotic fluid.
if your looking to lose your mucus plug to start labour, this may not happen as you can lose your mucus plug as little as 26 weeks and not go into labour. i would highly not a…dvise you to purposely lose your mucus plug as it is what prevents bacteria getting to the baby!!!!!!!! let it happen naturaly its much safer for your baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
You can, but i constantly lost mine & it grew back a little throughout the whole pregnancy.
Depends what you mean by "early pregnancy" since it doesn't start to shape until after the first trimester. Yes you can lose it in early pregnancy, or parts of it, and see you…r doctor if that is what you think. It regenerates though if you lose it early. If it was the mucus plug it should have been some brown or maybe even red in it. Sometimes the normal discharge (the milky white stuff) can hang up in the vaginal area and when it comes out it can be thick and clumpy.
Yes. You should notify your Dr immediately so that you can be checked for early labor.
Usually the airline have a limit for pregnant women for flying, around 7 months, so if you are about to start labor anytime it is def not allowed.
Yes, you can shed the mucous plug slowly leading up to labor. I started shedding in week 33 and in week 34, there hasn't been anymore just yet.
Yes. Cause even tho you lose it most woman don't notice.
Some women do depending on how sensitive their cervix is
Yes, I would think you could. Pregnancy lasts 38 weeks usually and usually you lose your mucus plug a few days before labor. It could be a sign of premature labor. I would cal…l your DOCTOR if this is happening to you. Your DOCTOR may want to see you as premature births can be hazardous to the baby.
