  • It is possible for you to lose the whole thing at once or bit by bit gradually. There's really no way to tell without going to the doc for an exam. Also, mucous plugs can regenerate after pieces of it have come off. When mine came out it was gradual, like every 3 times I'd go to the bathroom, I'd find a piece, and it was whitish/yellowish. Its definitely some pretty nasty looking stuff! Hope I helped ya and congrats on the new edition!

  • Sounds like your plug :) Its a snotty jelly like substance and it can take iyt a little bit to come out or it can all come out at once like mine did. It can be clear or tinged with blood. It can keep regenerating itself and you can keep losing it so dont be alarmed if it keeps happening :)
