I was curious about what your mucus plug looks like exactly.....Also wanted to know if there is any correlation between how much youre dilated and when yu lose your plug.

    And no, it isn't really relevant to dilating necessarily.

  • I lsot my plug between 3 and 4 centimeters. It looks REALLY gross. Its looked to my like a huge ball of greenish bloody snot. You will know it when you see it. my slid down my leg! YUCK! My friend went pee and wiped and there it was. I believe she told me she lost hers at 2 centimeters.

  • I lost mine 3 weeks before I actually went into labor so I believe theres no coralation with how much your dialated. I was half a centimenter dialated and you will notice. Its really slimy and mine was kind of redish brown but mine didn;t come out all at once.

  • It looks like a big wad of snot, about the size of two large cotton balls. Mine came out in a couple of small pieces, followed by a large one. It can be yellow, brown, blood tinged or not. I felt the large chunk come out (like a big period clot), and when I went to wipe, sure enough, it was there. Pieces are surely normal. Clear and thin and sweet smelling sounds more like discharge, which increases a lot toward the end. So much so, in fact, that I actually had a trip to L&D thinking my water had broken!
