Bye, bye plug

Lost some(?) of my plug this morning. I woke up, squatted down to get clothes out of my bottom drawer to go shower and it felt like I had slim coming out, gross eh? I knew what it was before I looked just based on how it felt. It's completely white in color, not bloody or brown.

I know it's not a sign labor is imminent-with B I lost my plug at 36 weeks but he was still cozy at our induction almost two weeks later. It does show me "stuff" is happening though, which excites me and makes me nervous at the same time!

I called Daddy, got him excited and then disappointed him.

I have a pad on now to monitor any other discharge I have. I'll let you all know if and when anything else happens.

Re: Bye, bye plug

So a mucus plug can be white, not just clear?

It can be white, brown, pink, clear, yellow or a mixture. Mine was white and clear. I've even heard green (but always thought that signaled infection). For me there was no second guessing, it was obviously mucus plug.

ETA: It can also be combined with red blood, at which case you could assume it's blood show....unless you've recently had an exam or had sex.

Okay, this may be gross - but it is kind of sticky/stretchy?

Yep. If you think about mucus that comes out of your nose some people say it can be related to that.

Re: Bye, bye plug

In that case, I have been seeing little bits of that randomly since Saturday night. Like 3 different times so far. Very small amounts so I know it wasn't the whole thing. But cool. Thanks for the info! I thought it could only be clear.

Good luck mama!

I still don't know what it's like to lose your mucus plug, never remember it happening with DD (must have been gradual) and hasn't happened with this one either, have a ton of discharge but thats nothing new.
