I did with my first. Labour started the next day. With my second I didn't. They broke my waters once I was in labour.

Lost my mucus plug in bits this time round for about 2 weeks before.. Never seen bloody show so must of come away when I was in established labour. Never seen it with my other two either

Both times, I lost mine a week or maybe slightly longer, before labour started.

DC1: I had what looked like (sorry TMI!) blobs of snotty egg white about 48hrs before she was born.
DC2 & DC3: Had a bloody show when I was well into established labour

Yes with dd

I was already starting to dilate, and I when I went to the toilet, there it was.

No with ds

I had one with my first but not with my second.

Nope. I’m on my third pregnancy and have never seen my bloody show - I assume it came away later in labour both times!

I had it one week before labour kicked in. I panicked as it was my first . But didn’t have any the 2nd time

Not until labour had actually started. Hope it happens soon for you OP

So do you always have a bloody plug before labour?
I had one with my first but no sign of one this time around and I am desperate to deliver this baby as I'm in such discomfort. I keep checking my knickers but nothing. Just searching for some hope that I might go in to labour any minute without a sign.

Throw me a bone?
