how far along were you when..

you lost your mucous plug?

does it have to be pinkish? I think I lost mine a while ago, it was clear but it was very stretchy, like snot (sorry tmi) and It was kind of elastic-like. would that be my plug? I lost a ton a few weeks ago and now I'm losing more...could it be that it grew back and I'm losing it again? I'm 34 weeks btw

  • sounds like it is doesnt have to be pink and it does grow back if you lose it early so you are probably just losing it again

  • It may also be that you're just losing more of it It doesnt always come out all at once. Sometimes takes a few times. It did with me. came out just a lil bit at a time. its pinkish when you're real close to labor.

  • I lost mine at 36 or 37 weeks with my first pregnancy, 39 weeks 5 days with my second. There was no pink either time, just a TON of snotty-looking grossness, lol. And the plug does regenerate if you don't go into labor within a couple of days of losing it, so it's very possible that you're losing the new one. Or it might just have been excessive discharge, either or both times; I thought in my second pregnancy I'd lost my plug a week earlier than I did, but then when it really did come out, I knew I'd been mistaken. Either way, it's not a big deal.
