First, I had a contraction, the real kind, then I had a funny feeling and ran to the potty to discover the mucus plug everyone was talking about! Well, DS came 38 hours later at home, naturally.<br><br>
Congrats and Blessings to you and your family!<br><br>
Blessings,<br>

My mucus plug went when my water broke in a dazzling spectacle on the family room loveseat <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I went into labour immediately and ds#2 was born 27hrs later, at 38.5wks.<br><br>
I was induced with #1 (awful experience), so I don't really know when the plug went *sigh*<br><br>
Good luck, mama!!

Wow! So many variations!<br>
I THINK I lost mine in the birth tub, about 2 hours after my water broke, just before I started pushing. I was in super hard labor and didn't see it or notice anything, but I remember my ex saying that they thought I'd pooped but when the doula fished it out it was just a big dark mucous chunky... could have been my plug I assume <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent">

I lost mine in dribs and drabs over the course of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and DD was born on Wednesday. So 3 to 5 days, I guess, was how long it took me.

I lost mine a couple times with my last pregnancy, the mucous plug can regenerate. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
