    Hi all

    Got a question, when is it normal for your mucas plug to go, is it before or after your waters break?!? not happened yet and still got a while to go, just wondered what to except really !!

    Hiya Natalie

    I think it just depends on the individual.....I suspect this is different from woman to woman and indeed from pregnancy to pregnancy.

    In my experience I lost my plug at 2:20am, my waters broke at 5am and I had my baby boy at 9:29am. Some women may lose this plug up to two weeks before actually going into labour.

    Love

    Hi Newbump.

    It can occur from 2wks before to not at all. With my children I only lost it 1 out of the 4 times. Unless I had lost it once in labor and at the hospital which by then I wasn't noticing much of anything!!!!! :wink:

    The mucus plug, also known as the "show" is a bunch of goo that you.... can...er...find in your pants (!)
    It blocks the uterus' opening until you're ready have the baby, and can come out as a sign of labour. I don't know how else to describe it without google LOL.

    I never saw mine when I had my son though.

    EDIT: here's a good link ( I had to google in the end!)
