How soon can labor begin if you have lost your mucous plug?

It can happen very soon, or a month later, you can never really tell by that.

I am 39w3days pregnant with my 3rd. I thought that I had lost my mucous plug last week (never happened before) and called my Dr's office. The nurse informed me that I should expect to be in labor within 72 hrs. Well, I really lost my mucous plug three days ago and still no baby. My friend who just had her 4th said that labor may not happen until 2 weeks after losing your mucous plug. I believe they just told me "72 hrs" to pacify me.

im 31 weeks along, and i lost my mucus plug about 3 weeks ago. ive talked to my doctor and they said i have no reason to be concerned about going into labor yet that everything still seems fine. every woman is different, ask your doctor.

I lost my plug at 36 weeks (and told my OB and he said he didn't think the mucous plug actually exists...which is a big HAHAHA if you've ever lost it cuz it's the size of a Volkswagon!!) and then I went into labour at 38 weeks...so...it definately means that you are effacing...but there's no formula for predicting the onset of actual labour.

I lost my mucous plug at 7 months and carried my baby 10 days past her due date. However, a friend of mine lost hers and her baby was born 24 hrs later. You can never tell.
