is it my mucous plug?

Last night I had some contractions, but irregular and not strong..but when I woke up this morning and took a pee, I noticed a small bunch of snotty looking material in the toilet (I always examine contents haha). Is that the so-called "mucous plug"? I don't know. It was a small amount and it wasn't red or pinkish even it actually looked kind of clearish. When might I go into labor??

  • it could be... the beginnings of it, or just your cervix thinning. The bad news is, losing a mucus plug doesn't accurately indicate the onset of labor. It could even be weeks away.
    I'm sorry.

  • it could be part of it. wait til ur water breaks or real strong contractions to start before u go to the hospital. if ur not in a lot of pain,i'd stay home, u'll just regret going early.

  • Id say it was. Mine didnt have and blood in it either, and it was clear. I lost it 3 weeks before i was induced.
