  • That's completely normal!

    With my first I lost it in big old chuncks every time I had a bowl movement. This time I've had 2 really tiny pieces come out and then yesterday when I peed in a cup at my OB appointment I lost a HUGE chunk of it RIGHT IN THE CUP!!

    It was SO embarrasing because it wasn't like I was going to retrieve it from the pee so I had to tell the nurse it was in there!

    Anyway some women loose little pieces over several weeks, some loose it in one big chunk weeks before labor begins and others loose it either way during labor.
