Your plug can grow back, too. Unless you are experiencing contractions or bloody show or have had your water break then you're probably fine.

My plug fell out a week and a half before my water broke. Mine came out in one big chunk too it wasn't a small amount. It was actually really nasty because it fell out right after a shower and like splatted when it hit the floor. SO gross. Good luck though! It means baby is coming very very soon!

It doesnt always mean early labour. My sister lost hers 2 weeks before she gave birth to her baby. I've heard of people losing it a month before. It's definately a good idea to go to your doctor to get it checked out just incase. The day my sister had a bloody show is when she went into labour but that was 2 weeks after she started losing it

Yes you are in early labour. I would call your doctor and inform them that this has happened. As well as start walking everywhere! Walking is the key to a fast "easy" labour.



Unless you are very early then sit relax and drink lots of fluids!

Not necissarily, You can lose it 2 weeks before labour or right before you go into labour.
