Hi im going to be 38 weeks on Monday and im thinking I lost my mucus plug last night i was 50% effaced on Monday and then I had lots and lots of mucus in my underwear then it just went away today so i would guess it is gone. I have had to wear a panty liner through out my whole pregnancy so its just weird that now im dry. Anyways my Doc said im 1cm. dilated also so im just wondering when im going to go into labor? This is my second pregnancy and the doc said that the baby is super super low in his own words. People say as well as the doc that your second always is faster so I just want to know what the odds are that I will have to wait til my due date which is December 15th.

Unfortunately losing your mucas plug is not much of a sign...you can lose weeks before you deliver...50% effaced is a good sign, but that can happen early as well...1 cm dialated, well that can happen months before...chances are if the baby is low and all of this is going on now you will go soon...but two weeks is soon...just be glad its looking like you will be on or before your due date...some woman go after thiers...good luck to you and let us know how it all goes...
