  • It could be a small portion of your mucus plug, but it's a bit bigger than that. Even then, it could be days or weeks before you're set to deliver.

  • Sounds like at least some of your plug. But even if it is some of or all of it's true that you can still not go into labor for weeks. I lost mine at 36 weeks and didn't have my son for three more weeks...and then I was induced due to my diabetes, I wasn't even close to going into labor on my own

  • Probably some of your plug. Some women (like me) loose it very gradually over a matter of weeks. There is not necessarily a big event. =)

  • like the others said, it really doesn't matter if it was a bit of the plug or just regular discharge because it can't help you know when you will go into labor =) gl!

  • mrsjosey...

    Unless you've never been pregnant you did indeed have a mucus plug!

    OP as other have said it can come out little by little, in big chunks, or in all at once.
