Thought of this because of another question

how many times can you lose your mucus plug? Ive lost mine about 4-5 times already and im 32 weeks.
why do some people lose it more than once?

  • as far as I know it is just one plug, are you sure you are not just loosing pieces of it?

  • you do generally loose your plug once maybe twice at the most, you can also loose bits if it at at a time depending on how many weeks the plugs are comming way. loosing you plug is a sign of labour however if your body prepares for it to go into labour your plug will come away. if labour doesn't progress your plug will build back up!!

    extra info

    waters braking also works in the same way these can actully go more than once
    let me explain for example if you waters go with a pop or huge burst then your are more than .likely to into labour within 48 hours if this doesn't happen depending on you gestaion they wll give you a hormone to start labour

    but howver if it starts trickling for example when you stand up cough or sneeze and lbour does not progress it can build back up so thearetically it can go more than once as a trickle indicates small hole and they hole repairs itself it its huge pop then it won't
    sorry for the lengh
