  • Not necessarily. And he shouldn't be able to tell. Your plug can come out and reform.

  • I don't think that it has to come out. If you are concerned about it, talk to your OBGYN.

  • Throughout your pregnancy, your cervix has been closed and protected by a plug of mucus. When the cervix effaces, the mucus plug is loosened and passes out of the vagina. The mucus may be tinged with blood. This passage of the mucus plug is called "show" or "bloody show." You may or may not notice when the mucus plug passes. For sure your husband wouldn't know the difference if that happens.
