    Do you have to lose your plug before your waters go? I'm thinking the plug would stop the waters leaking out or is that nonsense? :shrug:

    I'mnot sure, but I never realised I was losing my plug last time. I just had a bit of slightly pinky discharge, but not the jelly like stuff that I have seen other people talk about. My waters also didn't break until I was well into established labour.

    Not sure; with my son my waters were leaking for a couple of days-heavy at the end- and I never had signs of losing my plug.

    No you dont dont i am pretty sure you can loose it all at once (water and plug), and i know your plug doesnt keep your waters in the plug is just to keep infection out. The membranes hold your waters in. :)

    no you dont, i didnt loose my plug or have any indication my waters were going to brake with my first i got off the toilet and it gushed everywhere! the 2nd time i lost loads and loads of plug but my waters didnt brake untill 30mins before he was born and that was because the midwife broke them! also, if you do loose your plug, it can grow back :) x
