  • once you loose your plug, if you don't start labor within 48 hours it grows back, so yes, its normal!!!
    GOOD LUCK, I hope the stripping works for you, it didn't for me :(

  • It is probably from your doctor stripping your membranes....Cause I lost my mucus plug already and the doctor stripped my membranes yesterday and there was more bloody mucus that came out after sometimes it will stay up there until something make it come loose. Which is probably what the sex did. Sex is what helped me along in loosing my plug. GL though I am only 2 cm dialated and I am 39 weeks and 1day.
