The great mystery.. sometimes weeks before, and then the plug rebuilds itself.. sometimes days before.. sometimes not until you are ready to deliver. .it's not really a trustworthy sign of impending labor.

I've been loosing my plug for about 3 weeks now, with no labor. For some it is a sign of labor will start in 1 to 7 days, not for me! I like to think I'm in painless labor now as I'm 2 cm and 80% effaced at 39+ weeks. Enjoying the painfree progression! I LOST MINE WHILE I WAS IN LABOR I began losing a non- bloody mucous plug at around 29 weeks during all of my pregnancies. Research has enlightened me on the fact that this is common and often goes un-noticed by many women. Every woman and every loss of your mucus plug is going to be different. With my first, I lost it the night before I had her. I started to get contractions straight away. With this one, I am now 39weeks and 3days and I lost my first one 4 Fridays ago, then last Tuesday and then one yesterday. They say not to pack your bags and rush up to the hospital as soon as it happens. It's the contractions or bleeding that you worry about. If you do get worried or anything, ring the labour ward and talk to them. They do this every single day. They will put your mind at ease. I didn't lose mine until about 9 hours after my first contraction and 3 hours before my daughter was born.
