  • With my first it can take awhile to completely lose it. A week or two before labor i had clear mucus coming out! When i lost my plug completely it was a little bloody have no clue what the bloody show looks like!

  • You can begin to lose your mucus plug at any time during pregnancy. Your mucus plug can actually regrow if the baby is not ready to come. There is no certain way to tell how much longer you have left.. Good luck!

  • The mucus plug looks like thick, gooey gel. If you see it, don't be alarmed because it does't mean that you will go into immediate labor. However, if you're less than 36 weeks, you should probably contact your ob provider if you start feeling pain because it could indicate premature contractions. If you are over 36 weeks, it might take anywhere from 72-hours to a week before you develop contractions. Hope this helps.

  • you can have the clear gooey gel then the plug itself is an actual glob (at least it was for me) the bloody show it really depend on your body, theres no set time frame for it. Some people never experience either before they go into labor.
