In brief: Soon...maybe
Usually within 2 days is what we're taught.
.. After doing this for over 20 years, i've learned that the wait can be much longer. If it's truly a mucous plug from cervical change & with increasing contractions; you may deliver within the week. But, remember, your baby hasn't read the same books & will come when it's ready! ;).
