    i do believe i just lost my mucus plug. i am gonna google it, but it was definately "mucus-y" so i am assuming so...if that is the case, doesn't that mean i have about 24-72 hours before going into labor? or is that a wife's tale?

    How exciting! But... you can go hours, days or even weeks after you lose your mucous plug before you go into labor. In your case, I hope you only have hours to go!
