Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

When did you release your mucus plug?

7 answers
3 years ago
I'm 34 weeks along and was just curious around what time do most women loose their mucus plug. I haven't "released" mine just yet, I've read that the is one sign that you may be going into labor in the coming days or even weeks so I'm feeling a bit nervous. I guess the closer I get to my due date, the more excited I am but the more nervous and scared I feel for labor.

I lost mine 3 days before I went into labour.  I had my son at 39 weeks and 3 days.

Some women don't notice when they lose theirs.  I didn't with my first.  With baby #2 I was about 38 weeks.  :)

I noticed I starting losing mine at 36 weeks. When I went to the doctor Wednesday she checked me and then scrapped the membranes and the nurse said that I would lose more of it. Which yesterday morning and this morning I noticed it. I didn't realize how much there was but my doctor said that with some women you can lose it and it will rebuild. I'm 38 weeks and 1 day now.

I never noticed it with my first and had to be induced with my last 2. So I have never noticed losing mine. I know that its normally right before you go into labor.
