  • Its brownish wih a little blood. It depends on your body. you could lose it and not go into labor for weeks or it could reform. I lost mine on my due date and went into labor 3hrs later is just depends on your body.

  • It looks like a giant booger. No kidding, it's just a big blob of very thick mucus with some streaks of blood in it. It's not that big a deal, it generally means something is happening but it might be a few weeks or it might be 10 minutes until labor starts properly. I lost mine maybe 3 days before my son was born but I was already about a week late by that point.

  • It almost always comes out gradually over time, its not just a one time thing. And it typically starts off as a yellowish color and eventually might get a "ribbon" of blood thru it. The way I describe it as looking like is that stuff that they use to attach flyers inside of magazines (the thick, yellow gooey thing)

    You usually start to lose your plug when your cervix starts to dilate. Nothing new happens after you start to lose it except that you might want to wear a panty liner because it gets kinda nasty
