I know your mucus plug can regenerate and what not but I'm curious as to how many mothers lost there plug (whether you lost it over a couple weeks or all at once) with no bloody show and weny into labor shortly after... Yesterday I was feeling crampy for half the day and I've been losing my plug for like 2weeks now and this morning I had a big chunk of it come out tmi sorry . Haven't had my bloody show yet but now I am having either mild contractions or BH'S I just started timing them so we will see .....so how many mothers have been through the losing the plug but not the bloody show and still be in labor

I have been losing little bits of my mucus plug for weeks and had what I believe was my bloody show last weekend. I was due yesterday and I am still pregnant.

I lost little bits during my whole 3rd trimester, didn't go into labor until I saw bloody show.

I didn't lose my plug with any of my three until I was in labor.

I lost my plug over half a week with my daughter. Never did have a bloody show. My water broke 5 days after losing plug.

I lost my plug the day before I turned 34 weeks and went into PTL right at 34 weeks. They stopped it now ive been slowly losing it again but haven't really had any contractions this time.

Didn't lose it at all with my first. With my second I started losing it at 28 weeks and it got worse as I got farther along. I had my daughter at 38 weeks but it could of been earlier since I was on meds to stop contractions.

Well I have had three contraction pain that were about 10 mins away from each other and 50 secs long so I guess it's the waiting game .... Or wait 30 mins If they stay regular go in ? I'm only 36 weeks but I was told they wouldn't stop labor at 36 weeks so I'm fairly confused

So if it is labor there no point going in early at 36 weeks ( never had labor start by itself I was induced with my first)

no, you go in. but generally you get sent home unless your contractions are atleast 5 min apart. or your water breaks.
