  • I'm on baby number 3 and have yet to see one... Not everyone "looses" it in the same way and for people like me, you don't ever know when you do.

  • (TMI) I lost mine a few days after my last exam before i was induced. It was brownish, thick and snotty looking... gross, i know lol. It may be different for everyone though, but that is how mine looked :)

  • With my first I didn't lose my until I was in labor. This time around I have been losing bits of it, it looks like boogers really lol. Once it comes out with blood that's your "bloody show"

  • Honestly, I don't remember losing one, but so often with pregnancy everything varies so much. I was so the mom that watched every pregnancy video and went to labor classes for my first pregnancy...nothing happened like they said it would. I was so anxious for my mucus plug and all that stuff. All I can say, now on my second pregnancy, is that when you're going into labor YOU WILL KNOW whether you loose your plug or not.

  • It looked like the loogie from hell. It was the consistency of... well... mucus! Some of it was brown, some of it was pink and it was pretty big, like I'd say about the size of a half-dollar sized ball.

  • OH! Mine came out about 46 hours before I finally gave birth. It was a Wednesday night and I ended up having my daughter on a Friday evening.
