Hi so I think iv lost my plug I'm 38+4 and I was just wondering how soon did labour follow for you, hours? Days?

Wow so soon after then, because I googled it and it says it can even take weeks so just wanted to get some mums experiences

I should've said I was 39+2 and it was DC1. I'd already had a couple of contractions when I lost the plug and labour started ramping up from then.

Good luck whenever it happens!

Sorry I was a week after too x

1.5 weeks for me. Sorry!!

I think it was about three or four weeks for me. It must have then reformed as I lost it a second time and DS was born four days later. He was premature though.

Mine was 5 days before labour

I lost mine with DC3 at 31 weeks, he wasn't born until 37 weeks.

Didn't lose it at all with the others until labour started/waters broke.
