Post subject: Mucus Plug?
Hi Ladies

Ok so I googled some images of the mucus plug gross I know, but I wanted to see what it looked like so that I was prepared.

However, a lot of the images looked like some of the CM that I have been having for weeks now but in smaller amounts. So I guess my question is does the plug always come away in one big mass or does it sometimes come away bit by bit?

I think the answer is both, you can lose it all and you can lose it in bits. It can also regenerate to an extent too.

They are different consistencies. Your mucus plug will be thicker, jelly like (like a fried egg). Soz this might be too much information but it will sit on top of a panty liner rather then CM which will sink into it. xx

Maybe what I've been having isn't CM then - it definitely sits on top of the toilet paper or my underwear and is very 'jelly like' !

depends normally on weather you have had 1 baby already or weather this baby is ur first

from what i understand with the first u can start losing some of the plug in little bits for weeks before bubs is born

with my second i lost the whole thing the morning i went into full labour

but the thing is it can differ from one woman to another

I lost mine over about 3 or 4 days, was very thick like really heavy discharge, had a couple of huge lumps that was unmistakable and I knew for sure then.... And then I went into labour. Xx

I read your post and also googled - yuck!!! some really gross pictures there lol!!! I have had some stuff too that looks more like the green jelly type cm or mucus plug. Its only been in tiny bits so not concerned at all but will mention it to OBGYN next week.
Are you worried that the baby might come early or just wondering if its a normal thing?

I had this for many weeks and really green for the last 10 weeks. I got swabbed numerous times and all fine. They never did tell me what it was!

Hi Alowicious! - I know! - Some pretty gross photos!!!

I'm not worried really - just curious. If anything, I would prefer bubba to come a little early as I will be induced on my due date if not!

I've never been so interested in what's going on 'down there' before! lol! Laughing
