  • Mine came out all at once and was sitiing in my underware. Eww, I know. It will be thick and slimy brown with some red blood in it. My water broke 2 minutes after I found the plug.

  • I've been losing mine for 4 days now. It looks like snot. Yuck! It can be blood tinged, or not. I don't know if you can see it if it's in the toilet, but it seems like you could....

  • Funny thing, I've been pregnant before and have NO clue when I lost it. It had to have been sometime during labor because I never saw it. I think it came out when pushing.

  • I didn't feel mine come out but I was asleep so maybe you can feel it. I have no idea if it floats but you will be able to tell when you are losing it because it is slimy and gross.

  • Most of the time it has a pink or brown tinge to it, and it's thick and slimy like snot. I lost mine over the course of 4 days with my DS. I would see it in my underwear or when I would wipe after using the bathroom.
