mucus plug

Hey I was just curious as to how long until baby gets here after you lose your mucus plug, today I lost two big pieces. No bloody show. But I've had a lot of pressure in my lower pelvis and some cramping and.back pain. Nothing that I can time. I'm due in a week. Is this a good Sign that baby is on her way soon?

Sounds like it. I keep trying to walk mine out and nothing so far. She's being a stubborn little diva, lol.

losing your mucus plug is a sign that your cervix has begun  loosening/softening up. theres not exact time frame when you'll go into active labor after that. for this pregnancy, i lost bits and pieces of my mucus plug at 37 weeks and im 39w3d today and still no baby. with my first pregnancy, i went into active labor about a week after lodging the entire mucus plug... sighs... i was expecting the same for this pregnancy. feeling a little disappointed.

I lost my plug around 11am see what happens im 38 weeks and 1 day. Contractions are not constant trying to walk as much as I can to get them going. I was 1 cm yesterday at 3 pm when they checked me. Good luck!
