when ur mucas plug falls out that means ur water has broke or will break! with my first born i was making dinner and bent over to get a pan and my water broke, i thought i peed myself! so i went to the bathroom and took a shower, when i stepped out it happened again! all i could do is laugh! this happened about 2 weeks before my due date. i beleave that this can happen at anytime during ur last trimester more twards the end! im not a dr or a registered nurse so i would double checkwith ur healthcare provider! i hope this helps!

Some people do not lose there mucus plug, i never did with my first two children and my water did not break with either.  It varys with person to person.  I had to be induced with both my kids and lets hope number 3 comes easier.

At 37 weeks there will be another development with your childs lungs. Its the last thing to form completely to help your child breathe. So before 37 weeks I wouldnt try to go into labor. But after that....sure. Your baby is pretty much finished and just waiting for the right moment to come.

My mucus plug fell out on June 8th. I am now 31 weeks 5 days and am just fine. Your mucus plug is not set to come out at a certain time and can regrow back after you lose it.
