I don't remember losing my plug with C, but have just been to the loo and had a bit of bloody discharge, really thick. Im not getting my hopes up as I'm only 34+2, and have had lots of bleeding during this pregnancy so it's not completely unusual for me.
When did you lose yours and how long after did you go in to labour?

During labour, I was already contracting. The first sign of labour for me was my waters breaking.

That's the same as my labour with C xx

Lost first but at 38+5, bit more over next couple of days until I went into labour at 39+0 and he was eventually born at 39+1. I asked similar when I lost mine and the answers varied from weeks before to only once in labour.
Are/have they given you the steroids?

No I've not had anything BG, there is talk of giving me a sweep if I have any further problems after 36 weeks but no mention of steroids xx

I must have been thinking of someone else (Morph maybe?). Anyway, I'd have thought they would if they're talking about pre-term sweeps, it may be they give them IF there are problems/they do give you a sweep. Don't want to worry you, just thinking aloud.

With C - 26+6, had him the next day.
With J - 39+6, had him the next day.

Mine started to go 10 days ago, at 37+2 but I'm still here, waiting! MW said it's quite common for it to go even a few weeks before, but personally, I would give triage / labour suite a call for advice if you previously laboured pre term. Hope all's ok x

With #1 whilst in labour. Never saw one with #2.

have you phoned the unit? especially with a transvere lie, id just let them know iyswim
i had a show on the wednesday and thursday and had him the following wednesday after another big show.

I had a scan last week and he is/was now head down....yippee!!!!!!!
I feel a bit funny calling them.... Last time I bled hey said don't call for spotting as that's normal for me, but if I had a significant bleed to go in. Maybe I should monitor tonight and call tomorrow if it continues??
I didn't even consider when I saw the gloop that I'd need to call. I'm a bit complaicent with this prem business I think as C was a great weight, 7lb 1oz and didn't need any extra care. I wonder if last time they got my dates wrong and he was perfectly on time???

With G i lost my plug on the Weds morning and had her on the Sat.
With P lost my plug after overnight contractions on the Weds and had her on the Thurs.

Last time I have no idea as I was bleeding so much.
This time I lost a couple of massive loads the day after my sweep and then another load today. Still not in labour.
You are still quite early so I would definitely keep a close eye. Have you had steroids yet?

Not here has been no mention of steroids at all xxx
