    I lost my plug today 37+6. I really don't want to go into labour yet as I have a c-section booked for Tuesday and would have to have mergency section if happened before. I really want to hold out til then. It was a lot of plug - baout a tablespoon in one big clump (TMI - sorry) and was cleary/yellow no blood. Do you think baby will hang on until tuesday morning. I know it can still be days after plug lost but just got the niggling feeling. xxxxx

    I started with Charlie at the night after losing my plug in the morning but the midwife told me it can take up to two weeks for labour to start x

    The plug can rebuild itself so losing it once isn't a sign that your labour is imminent - all the best with the c-section!

    It could be ages yet. If you start feeling niggly, then I'd call your midwife to advise.

    is this yr first?
    With my first I lost my plug and had her nearly 2 weeks later, she was maybe stubborn, due to pre emclampsia I was enduced everyday for ten days before she started to come,
    with my second i lost the plug the night before and went into labout the following afternoon with my son i dont remember losing the plug but he was 5 weeks early xx

    I didnt notice losing mine with first. With second I lost it with the first couple of contractions when labour started but it was quite bloody so i knew something was happening.

    I wouldnt worry, call the MW if you feel anything starting but it can be weeks before anything happens after losing your plug.

    Good luck with the section on Tue xx

    I lost my plug 8 days ago, it had no blood in it. Nothing came of it. I now tonight have started to get small bits of blood in my discharge, I'm hoping its from my plug. x
