    Mine started while I was in hospital having contractions. My water broke some 24 hours before my mucous plug dislodged.

    More than Once! LOL.

    Ok, I will go with "During labour" because 3 of them were during labour. The other two were the day before - simply because labour is so damn long it went past midnight! LOL.

    lol I need multiple votes too!

    First, didn't lose had c/s.

    Second, must've been when hossy broke waters? I was in labour but bub was in distress.

    Third, this was EXACTLY 2 wks to the day before he was born. My best birthing experience too

    I've only seen 2 other replies from people who didn't see theirs. Is this that unusual?
    I'm assuming mine must have been so far into my labours I never noticed?...

    ETA ok, I just checked the poll results... I guess it's not that unusual

    I didn't see mine. The midwife pointed it out to me, but I really couldn't be bothered changing position to see it. Apparently it came out as a nice complete plug during stage 2.

    DD1 - lost my plug over the arvo before labour started. I think I lost the last bit about 6 hours before my waters broke.
    DD2 - lots of mucous the 2 or 3 days before, but it was different to DD1's.
    DS - nothing. No warning at all! Was told I was having the show in labour, but never saw it.

    I never actually saw a bloody show with any of them. DD1's was grey & blood streaked, but thats it.

    Oosie - thats probably some of your plug hun Still could be a while yet (as you can see, 2 weeks or more), but your body is getting ready. Good luck

    I had my show then labour started about 3 hours later. I gave birth 20 hours after the show. Not really sure what to vote for because it was less than a day before, but not during labour.

    Never lost mine at all - DS was stuck in the birth canal for 5 days and I'm sure that if he wasn't I would have lost it during labour

    With DS it came away over a couple of days so I never really saw a plug, just pretty much every time I went to the toilet there was a lot of mucous there. I went into labour about 2 days after that.

    With DD I never saw it at all. My waters broke just before I started pushing so I assume it came out at some point then.

    I'm actually quite disappointed, I wanted to get a look at it! Hoping I get to see it this time.

    Thumbs up Show

    I lost mine on 27th April. It started in the morning, as a clear/colourless snot/semen and kept coming all day. The next morning it was brown and thick, I called the midwife to confirm it was normal to be really dark and she said you're OK. it kept coming until my baby was born 4 days later at 42 weeks 0 days on 1st May. So It came 4 days before and lasted until I gave birth, and changed colours many times. White- brown - red- white.

    I avoided induction by a matter of hours!! If you're healthy and don't want to be induced...?

    Say your prayers....have faith....WAIT!!!

    Hope to have helped, Love Rachel, Luke, Elizabeth & Leah!!!

    Mucho love from UK!!
