  • I defintely knew with mine, but I have heard that some women don't know. If you lost it in one shot then I guess you could miss it.

  • Could be both. I noticed both of mine. Everyone is different.

  • I guess not if you lost it in the toilet and didn't look when you wiped. Not everyone loses it before they go into active labor.

  • I was getting ready for a shower when I lost mine, It was stuck to the side of my leg... The worst part was that my husband was in the bathroom with me, I think that scarred him for life, ewwwwwww.... But I probably wouldnt have noticed otherwise

  • It really depends on how you lose it. With me I start losing it in large, long chunks. It was definately different from regular discharge. LOL It literally looks like mucus, like from your nose. Sort of gross I know. I always just lost pieces of mine when I was going the bathroom. I would notice when I wiped.

    My friend lost hers in the shower and definately noticed it. She was washing her vagina and felt something slip past her fingers. She looked down and saw a blood tinged chunk of mucus going across the tub floor and into the drain.
