  • You will see a gelatin like substance come out. It will be clear or possibly a lil bloody.

  • I knew when I heard a plop while I peed. Pee ought never to plop. And sure enough, when I looked, there was a big glob of goo that couldn't be mistaken for anything else.

  • It might come out a little at a time. But ya it is like snot that can be a rusty color. Losing your plug doen't always mean go right into labor. I lost mine with all 3 kids right around the 32-34 wk period. I went full term with all of them.
