Quoting Madison0427:" I lost my plug on Sunday, have had 2 episodes of false labor, and today I am fatigued and have had a ... [snip!] ... Has anyone felt like this before labor? and if so how soon after did your labor start? Thanks. I'm also 2 cm and 70% "
You could lose your plug weeks in advance. I went into PTL 4-5 times from 33 weeks. I was 3CM dilated and 80% effaced for weeks, lost my Mucus plug multiple times. He ended up waiting til 39 weeks and I was induced.
When I was induced (I was 4CM, 80% effaced when I went in), they started the pitocin for 30 minutes and my water broke on its own and basically was in labor all by myself.
