For those that had their twins already - mucus plug?

I lost at least part of my plug today..... I know this means nothing but Im just curious as to what some of you have experienced. Did you lose yours before labor? Did you lose yours and have nothing else happen??

 Were you dilated?

Re: For those that had their twins already - mucus plug?

  • After discovering I was at 4cm dilated and waking around like that, I lost part of it. 4 days later my water broke and the rest came out. It certainly doesn't mean labor but it wasn't too far behind it.

  • Lost part of it at 24wks. I believe it regenerated itself and then truly lost it about 30min after my water broke at 35w6d.

  • For my first (singleton) pregnancy, I lost a little bit about a week before I went into labor.  I would lose a little bit every few days until the day I actually went into labor, I lost a big chunk.  I don't remember being more than 1 or 2 cm dilated before I went into labor.

  • I lost a little bit of it at 36w1d. I went to the restroom a couple of hours later and my water broke as I was standing up (the rest of the plug was there too). I was effaced, but not dilated at my OB appointment that same day.

    I lost it at 35w2d.  I didn't realize that it was the plug b/c there was not a spec of blood.  It just looked like the EWCM when you ovulate.  I had a dr. appt. the day before with ultrasound, non-stress test, etc. and was not contracting a bit (even after running across the huge parking lot to get to the appt on time!).  I had the babies at 35w5d.

  • With my singleton I never lost it. Had her at 39 weeks after being induced 5 days earlier. 

    With the twins I lost a big piece at 31w. I wasn't even sure since I had heard it called the bloody show and




    it was more like a foot long booger. I was so close to texting my sister a pick to say WTH? More came out through the rest of the day.

    I went into labor the next day and had them at 31w1d

  • With DD1 I lost it at 36w,was already dilating and effacing and had her at 38 wks.

    With the twins,I never lost it to my knowledge and was several cms dilated at our 36w c/s.
  • I don't think I lost it, at least I never saw it.  My water broke and then I went into labor.  I had been dilated to 1cm for at least 6 weeks.

    They say that it doesn't mean labor, but it did for me. I was having regular, non-painful ctx's all day. I had a lot of ctx's for weeks, but usually they went away with rest and water. I lost my mucus plug that day and didn't think much of it. My OB called me that night to tell me that my LDH was elevated. We ended up meeting her at the office and I was 3-4cm/80%. By the time I was admitted to L&D and she broke my water, I was 5cm!

    I was 36wks when I lost my mucus plug and delivered after midnight, so 36wks 1 day.

  • I lost mine in pieces over the 2 days before my water broke. I was only 1cm at that point.
  • I started losing mine about a couple of weeks before i went into labor at 37 weeks and 4 days! If i remember correctly i was dilated 1 cm but it didnt progress until i went into labor!

  • I guess you can lose it and not even be dilated as well as not lose it and Still be dilated!

    My water broke first.  I was in the hospital in labor when I lost my mucus plug.  This was at 33w 3d and i had my girls a few hours later, after midnight at 33w 4d
