  • what exactly would you like to know about it?

    are you asking what it is? when you lose it? what it looks like?

  • http://www.i-am-pregnant.com/encyclopedia/Pregnancy/Mucus-Plug

    That site should give you the basics.

    I lost mine the week and a half leading up to me going into labor, but it is different for everyone.

    Best of luck!

  • It's just like it sounds. A glob of mucus that covers the cervix and seals it. When you start to dilate it comes loose and many women will start to see it in globs as they wipe. It looks just like mucus from your sinuses many times, it may also have some small traces of blood in it. Mine always came out gradually. Fun stuff :)

  • it is like pink stuff, maybe a little slimy when u wipe but not much. I lost mine the day I went into labor. It comes out sometimes a month before u deliver or 2 weeks before, or for some like me the same day I went into labor.
