I hate to say it but from my third pregnancy on I often lost some of my plug on many occassions weeks before my babies arrived, I'd say if it didn't have at least a few small flecks of blood in it it might not mean anything , as often when you're actually effacing you get at least a tiny bit of bleeding or spotting from where the cervix meets the membranes as it will get pulled away , with 2nd and third pregnancies you can get gradual slow dilation of around 2cms without effacing well before labour and that can make it much more likely for you to lose chunks of your plug from time to time
How did you get on with the scan ? Are you all set for a natural delivery xx

I've been losing bits of mine for about 3wks..not loads but defiantly mucus plug like .
With my first I lost it on the morning I went into labour. But apparently it's not uncommon to start loosing it early on and it can replenish itself

with my 1st baby i lost my plug at 37 wks but still went 8 days over lol with my 2nd i didn't lose it until the day b4 i gave virth as i was induced but this time i seem to be losing bits every now and again, i have heard that it can regain tho and not to take any notice until it's streaked. i'm being induced again this time so i wonder if it will be the same.
*Our beautiful twins are safe in heaven*

Aww thats great news not long to go now then, where your other babies not on the smaller side
I think maybe they expect everyone to have 8-9lb'ers these days for some reason
Might be good timing though if they do talk about induction with the kids being off Or actually maybe that could be bad timing depending on how you look at it
Getting a bit nervous about next week now trying to keep busy so I don't think about it only really 4 days to wait i'm sure i won't sleep much monday night , but either way by tuesday night I should know where I stand so thats a good thing
Hope you're not waiting too much longer for your little girl to arrive might be worth telling the cons as she might want a poke about to see if anythings happening and that might encourage things to get going if you're close xx

Thats the reason i wanted to tell the cons so she would have a poke yep well remembered lol, all early all 6lb an under so shes not gonna be massive. Plus as the cons said little ones are easy to get out ha!!
Im sure you wont sleep, i know i wouldnt. Whats the name change name mean btw? Ill keep an eye out for updates in ttc an keep my fingers tightly crossed you get your bfp really soon xx
