    How long after loosing your mucus plug did you go into labour?
    For everyone who's already given birth :)

    Also, can it come away bit by bit? Or does it all come at once?
    Just been to the loo and discovered jellyish/snotty clear but white (if that makes sense) stuff down there. Googled it, and it looks like a few other 'plugs' on there. Is this everything? Or will there be more? Do I need to ring hosp? Or am I fine? Lol

    Sorry first pregnancy xxx

    I noticed my first bit of plug at 40w 6d, about 5pm in the evening and had a few mild period pains. I was on proper knicker watch being 6 days overdue as you can imagine.

    I kept losing a little bit and by 10pm that night I was getting definite pains that I started to time.

    I had 36h at home and then another 14h in the hospital before James arrived :shock: it all started 10pm on the 11th and I had him 1am on 14th.

    I am sure I am not the norm though so don't worry!!

    I started losing mine about a week and a half before, clearish white as you describe. Then my waters went on my due date before any pains/tightenings and I lost the rest of my plug at the same time. The my daughter arrived 6 hours later :)

    I had a couple of contractions (45 mins/ 30 mins apart) and then lost my plug, had the bloody show shortly after.

    There is no norm...

    You can lose it weeks before and it can replenish.
