Interested in a straw poll.. with DS1 mucous plus, bloody show and waters all went within about an hour of each other!
I am 38 weeks pregnant and pretty sure mucous plug gone today. Did have a pinkish bleed couple of weeks ago as well. Have been having on and off tightenings and pains for last 48 hours (and on and off for last 2 weeks - again nothing awful just noticable!) and sharp pains in pelvis today. In my mind still convinced baby will hold on for few more weeks but interested in others experiences!

How long after mucous plug did you go into labour?

Oh no whispers quite the opposite - it is what I want to hear! Only left work yesterday and still loads I want to sort before baby arrives! I am hoping he holds out a few more weeks but as DH said he'd rather we got the bag packed just in case!
DS1 was a due date baby, so thought it would be possible this one would be couple of days early but would rather not 2 weeks!

2 days, at 38 weeks! For some reason I had been absolutely convinced I'd go late, so ended up delivering on day 1 of my maternity leave, with masses left to do at home shock
