  • You have your baby! There is no way to know for sure if your discharge is your plug but you have to have lost your plug in order to deliver your baby! Does that make sense?

    You will lose your plug over the course of anything from hours (during labor) to months, so just because you may be losing it now doesnt mean that labor is right around the corner

  • It is a big snot looking thing. It can be clear, yellowish, greenish and tinged with blood. You would know it comes out when you wipe.
    I only lost it with my second baby, the other two times I never noticed it coming out.
