Has anyone?

Ladies out there who lost your mucous plug, can you explain the difference btwn the plug and just regular cervical mucous, some women experience. I'm trying to figure it out, but since this is my first pregnancy, I obviously have never seen it before.
Also, TMI, but can semen come back out 24hrs after sex, resembling mucous? Gross, I know, but I'm asking advice. lol.

  • Yes on the semen. Your mucous plug will have tints of pink and brown blood. It might be in chunks. Tends to look like a slightly bloody booger. Mucous is an annoying but normal part of pregnancy.

  • The mucous plug is kinda pinkish looking. This was my first too I had her 9-25 lol I lost the damn thing in my kitchen. Semen can come out looking kinda like discharge but it has a different smell I know that's gross.

  • Yeah, I was a little shocked at first and grossed out, but I had an appointment the next day and she talked about it without me asking. :)
