clear mucus discharge....plug?

OK, TMI, but I have been experiencing an increase in discharge for a few days. Today there seems to be more. It's clear mucus similar to the fertile days during a cycle, egg-whitish. This is my third child, but I've never lost my plug before that I can recall. I guess I probably lost it during labor? Anyway, I have no clue what that experience would be like. So,
my questions are:

What was your experience if you lost your plug?
Have you noticed an increase in mucus before labor?

Thanks ladies!

I have an increase in clear mucus as well

As for the plug I lost it with #1 and the best way I could discribe it was it looked like a jelly fish that was washed up on the sand

My mucus plug was thick, yellow and dry/sticky. The best to describe it was the size of a golf ball and you could pull and stretch it like rubber! Lol

I had that discharge for about 48 hours before losing my plug and water breaking. My actual plug was bright red mucousy chunks followed by bright red light bleeding.

I don't remember any discharge beforehand...

but if your plug comes out it's pretty gross and noticeable... (imo)

thick and sort of bloody and it took me aback.

Re: clear mucus discharge....plug?

I have been having that for the last week or so. Tuesday and Wednesday it was blood tinged and today it has been a lot thicker. It looks different than regular discharge, so I am hoping it is my mucous plug!

I have had an increase in mucus, but fairly sure it's not plug-related.
