  • You will know! It's like a big glob of jelly like stuff, or very stringy and mucousy. TMI but I didn't know what it was at first and it was hanging out of me, so I pulled on it and it was so gross! I couldn't even fling it off my finger it was so sticky!!

  • Your mucus plug is bloody yellowish looking. You will be able to tell the difference between regular discharge and your mucus plug.

  • You may not. It may go over a few days, it may go during labor in hospital. In my case I only noticeably lost 2 out of 5. I had a super hard contraction during labor before the hospital and there it was.

  • I never noticed losing mine with any of my first 3 (and my 4th was a c-section). I also didn't notice with this one (my 5th), but I'm starting to dilate which I guess means I lost this one without noticing too?!
