Firt cervix check!

So I'm 36 weeks and 2 days and had my first cervix check today. I lost my mucus plug 4 nights ago. I am now 2cm dilated and 25% effaced. I know every pregnancy is different, but just wondering what others experiences have been?! How long did it take you to go into labor after being 2cm or losing your mucus plug.. etc. I'm so ready for my baby boy, but I don't want him to come too early and be unhealthy! No rude comments please, I'm a first time mom and just a bit confused on how it all works. 😊
