  • mucuous plug! doesnt necessarily mean you will be in labor any minute...sometimes it plugs right back up. BUT it is a good sign your body is preparing :)

  • No, the amount doesn't matter. It might be pieces of the mucous plug, which might possibly be regenerating in there. It is not an indication of labor, but an indication of the body working and preparing for labor. :-)
    It is exciting to know your body works, but no need to expect anything right away. Maybe baby will come soon, maybe not, at least within a month, probably.
    Good luck!

  • A lot more, same stuff? :-) Have you had intercourse or a vaginal exam recently?
    You can call your doctor, of course, but you can also wait for labor to start, too. That might happen soon or not for a while.
    (This happens anywhere from minutes before delivering to months before delivering.)
