  • The mucus plug regenerates if you don't go into labor within 12 hours of losing it the first time.

    You're probably just losing more mucus plug.

  • At the end of pregnancy your cervix makes a lot more mucous that is why people loose their plug it just comes back but doesn't have time to harden anymore because it is so much .

  • its your mucous plugg Hello...... pieces are clearly still coming out. It is possible you have lost most of this. This happened to me and I went into labor a week later.
