and how did you know you lost it ?
35 weeks both pg's.
However didn't deliver DD until induction at 41 weeks last time.
This quesiton might get more response on 0-6 months.
I havent lost mine yet. Might not lose it till right before?
I lost mine at 34 weeks exactly. At my 36 week appointment I was 2 cm dilated and 80% effaced. You lose it as your cervix dilates and effaces--which we all know can happen pretty much anytime and doesn't mean a whole lot as far as impending labor is concerned. The one exception seems to be if you have blood tinged mucous which signifies that the cervix may have dilated at a faster rate (and broke some blood vessels in the process), which is more correlated with the initiation of labor.
My plug was a 2 in. x 1/2 in. blob of yellow gelatinous mucous . My midwife said my body would continue to create more mucous because it continues to try to protect the uterus, but if you're dilated enough, the mucous produced just falls through and comes out. I've been having a pretty consistent flow of more stringy discharge since then.
