Hello everyone!

I'm interested to hear others experiences. I've been losing my mucus plug bit by bit for over a week now. I'm 38 weeks on Tuesday, it's my 2nd baby. This didn't happen the first time around.... and I'm sooooo ready to have this baby now!

Thank you x

All three births it started coming away and labour started hours later.
Was your first early? All mine were 2-3 weeks early as well.

Mine didn't come away until I was in labour.

about 3 days then my waters broke but had to be induced in the end because my labour wouldnt start

The same evening, about 12 hours later!

The following day but my friend lost hers a fortnight before she went into labour so it can go either way.

I lost a small part the day before and then the rest of it in the afternoon in the early stages of labour.

I was already well into labour before I lost it, I had been admitted to hospital. My waters broke shortly after, but I’d been having contractions for 12 hours by that stage

Days before anything happened. I can't remember but it certainly wasnt imminent.

I had already been having contractions when I lost it early Sunday morning, contractions became a lot more regular and painful hours later. I gave birth Tuesday morning.
