hey everyone my names christina and im pregnate (still) with my fourth boy. about two days ago i lost my mucus plug (the first time this has happened by the way) but anyways i just always thought that looseing your mucus plug was a sure way to tell that you'll be haveing the baby soon. well as im sure u can tell i havent had any activity maybe afew contractions but nothing really i was just wondering why or if looseing the plug isnt really as sure as i thought

i lost my plug saturday morning and still nothing. i called my doc and she said that it is perfectly fine. as long as your not bleeding or spotting heavily. they did a cervix exam and i was only a cm dilated. but she said that loosing my plug i could dilate a little faster but it doesnt mean labor will come any sooner. we're just a step ahead of the game is what she told me

All that means is your cervix is starting to dialate. It could still be a few weeks. BUT with my first I lost mine Sat morn and Sunday night I went into labor. Here's to hoping for you! :-)

It can be a sign, but not always. If it didn't fall out naturally (i.e. intercourse) then it may still be a while.
