Kinda a grossish question...but we love em!

Did anyone else NOT ever know when they lost their mucus plug? I had no idea I even had one until 2 months AFTER I had my first DD. Another girl said she lost her mucus plug and I was like huh? Then I never saw it with Chloe either. My mom had given birth to 6 kids and only saw it with her last one. Just wondering if I am spazzing the whole thing or if others are familiar with when they lost theirs?

Re: Kinda a grossish question...but we love em!

Oh... speaking of grosss.....

I'm a triplet.. and my mom LOVES to gross me out about her mucus plug (She gave birth 2 other times.. but never saw those plugs). And get this: she swears it looked like the jelly-crud that comes packed in the container in SPAM or canned ham. BARF. I haven't been able to prepare a canned ham since (SPAM has been off my list since I was old enough to have sense.). I've heard it either looks like that jelly-crud OR one big snot ball.

MY MIL on the other hand gave birth twice and never saw her mucus plug in either birth.

I sure am hoping to be in the "not familiar when I lost my snot-ball, jelly-crud" team. Bleh.

Re: Kinda a grossish question...but we love em!

i didn't really notice it with my first ds, but my second one i wiped and had just a yucky, well mucousy mess on the toilet paper. it was more like just a really nasty bad clearish discharge. so not too bad. but i had a friend that said she lost hers in the shower and it was just a huge red gelatinous mess, just like a cork! ewww! i've heard it can vary like that though, from what i had to a really gross bloody cork looking mass. i'm on my third pregnancy now and hope to repeat what happened in either as far as that goes, considering neither was too bad!

Re: Kinda a grossish question...but we love em!

mine was just like really heavy mucous - with a slight yellow/greenish cast to it. let's put it this way - i've seen worse when i had a sinus infection....it definitely didn't have a "shape" to it or anything.

i think you can lose it quite gradually (and it does regenerate itself sometimes too) and maybe not really notice anything in particular.

I'm pretty sure I've been losing mine gradually over the past week. With my daughter I never saw one, and didn't have any signs of impending labour, either. But as far as I can tell, what I've been losing is mucus plug. I'm dilated to one, so I figure it must be?

Re: Kinda a grossish question...but we love em!

I didn't see it with #1, but I was induced. With #2, I'm pretty sure I lost it the morning that i went into *really* active labor...a couple of days before I was not dilated or effaced...I woke up at 4 something in the morning and went to the bathroom..wiped and there was A LOT of blood like I'd just started AF...when I got to the hospital (45-60 min later), I was 4cm and 80%. I'm assuming my plug was in that mess in the toilet, but I never actually saw it.
