Hiya I'm 37+6 and this evening lost a big chunk of clear Jelly.
This is my 2nd pregnancy with my first I lost my plug/jelly on a Thursday late afternoon, then my waters broke Friday night.
Just wondering how long people have gone between loosing their plug(if that's what this is) and labour starting, be it contractions or waters going?

I lost my plug 9 days before at 36+3 and then another little bit the night she was born

Mine went at 37+4 and dd was born at 39+3. The doctors and midwives were surprised it had taken so long after the plug going though!

The clear stuff was coming for a few days. The bloody show was 25 hours before.

Thanks for sharing. I was hoping this was a sign things were about to get going and I'd have my bubba by the weekend

I'm 38+4 and my plug went just over a week ago. Still no sign of the little one.

8 days. It keeps plugging though so I I lost 3 or 4 in total which was a surprise a few nights later.
