Mucous plug...
When did your mucous plug come out, or start to, and when did you actually have your baby - provided no extra "help" such as stripping of membranes, induction, etc.?

Re: Mucous plug...
Mine started to come out a week before I went into labor. I went into labor naturally and had a great birth. I freaked out and called my doula who told me it can kinda "grow back" and mine kept coming out all the way until the last minute of labor! I kept commenting how gross it was but I was so freaked as all my friends had theirs come out all at once, but not me!

Mine didn't come out until labor had already started. With DS, my water broke, but it was over 12 hrs after that before I was having contractions or even dilated past 2cm, my plug didn't come out until I was around 4cm. With DD, I got a little bit of blood-tinged mucous a few hours before contractions started and my water broke, but didn't actually lose my plug until transition, about 45min before she was born.

Depends on what...I had lots of mucus here & there close to due date. But then blood with it like 2 days before I went in. I did have to have waters broken though as my girls didn't feel need to do so.

With #1 and #2 while I was in labor, 5.5 and 4.5 hours before they were born. With #3 about 12 hours before real labor started, about 36 hours before she was born.

I never lost my plug with the first 3 (at least not that I noticed).
With DS3, I started losing bits of plug Friday evening, continued off and on all through Saturday and Sunday, then labor started at 1:30am Sunday night/Monday morning. So... I'd say 50-someodd hours between starting to lose the plug and labor?

Re: Mucous plug...
The only time I noticed a plug was with ds1 while I was in labor. I've never been induced.

I lost bits of my plug for a couple weeks. Then I lost a LOT at work one day and it was 1-2 days later that DD was born. I was at a 4 for 2 weeks before DD was born.

I started to loose my plug with both my kids in the morning, and went into labor the same night.
