  • it might be, but no reason to go to the hospital unless you are having contractions close together or your water broke. Your plug can come out all at once, it chunks, or stringy, and it can reform also if you dont go into labor for awhile. If it doesnt have any blood in it too I wouldnt get to excited, but rest up because regardless labor is going to be hard work when it comes.

  • Nope. Stay home and rest. Hospital staff isn't all that interested in your plug because it's such an insignificant 'milestone'. Losing your plug means nothing because labor can be days or weeks away. I lost mine twice with my last pregnancy and I ended up being induced for a post date pregnancy.

  • it MIGHT just be discharge because from time to time i get HUGE globs like that and i freak out, but basically as long as your not bleeding, or leaking fluids or having contractions then you should be fine. How many weeks are you?
