Anyone Not Lose Your Mucus Plug

I keep reading posts about losing the mucus plug, and that being an indication that labor isn't too far off. I wondered if anyone DIDN'T lose the plug before going into labor? I am 39 weeks this week and desperate to have this baby, but have seen no sign of the plug.

kh this is my second pregnancy and I don't even recall losing my mucus plug. Haven't even noticed for this pregnancy either. I think if you talk to your doc and ask him they will check for you.

I am 39 weeks on Wednesday and I have not lost my mucous plug either and as of my doc appt last week my doctor thought my baby would be born before my due date.

I am 40 weeks, 3 days....no plug. My sis-in-law didn;t lose her plug until she was admitted into the hospital, probably 4 or 5+ cm dilated!! I wouldn't count on that plug to mean much :-)

Great--this makes me feel better. :) Emmie or ssmith, have either of you started dilating? I was 2 cm as of Thursday. I know this doesn't really mean anything, but I'm looking for any sign at this point!

I didnt lose my mucous plug with my first child until I was in the hospital 4cm dialated. I had no idea what it was either. I had to go to the bathroom and when I wiped there it was.

I am 2 1/2 cm dialated and 80% effaced as of last tuesday I will find out tomorrow if I am anymore.

You may lose it all at once, you may lose it over time & not even notice.

I lost mine at week 38 I'm now into week 41. My OB said most women don't notice losing their mucus plug.

I went to my 36 wks appt today...and I haven't lost my mucus plug yet. Ive asked the nurse if my Dr. would do an internal exam on me today and she stopped for a moment and asked why do you think you'll need an internal exam today? I just said I thought that perhaps I can request and see how Im progressing and she said they dont usually start doin that til Im 38 wks forward...oh wellz I'll get my chance. hehehe
