  • Your mucus plug will look like a big blob of mucus, pretty much. May have streaks of blood in it. You may never see it...took me until my 3rd to see it! With my son they saw the echogenic cardiac focus i.e. calcium deposits, in the left ventricle. He was totally healthy! No one knows why the calcium deposits form but it tends to increase the risk of the baby having Downs. Scared the crap out of me but he is fine:) I prepared myself for my son being born with Down's just in case, but my OB and my heart said he would be fine. Try not to worry....we have so many ultrasounds and just know too much, in my opinion:)

  • youre not necessarily going to lose your mucus plug. alot of women dont until youre in labor or delivery. i never did. even still if you do, it may not come out all at once. but if you notice any abnormal discharge or bleeding call your OB dont wonder what it is. better to be safe.

  • Your mucus plug could fall out in parts, looking like snot with a little blood in it. The chances that they were wrong about down's syndrome is highly unlikely. If they thought you were at risk, you would have tons of tests.

  • You will have blood when you wipe, and it will be thick (like egg whites)
