Hey,
I was wondering when everyone lost their mucus plug if you even did before your baby was born. I don't remember losing mine with my DS but my husband swears I showed him... But I am just trying to figure out if you can lose it early in pregnancy well at 27wks thank you in advance..

You can lose it early and it will grow back. I lost mine when I was in active labor.

Losing your mucus plug is not an indication of labor.

I'm currently 38 wks pregnant and I still have yet to lose my mucas plug, and am assuming that I won't lose it until labor has already started. Honestly I don't think I have ever lost any of my mucas plugs with any of my three prior pregnancies and if I did prior to labor I didn't notice lol. I do know that you can lose them quite early though and they can regenerate so to speak.
