  • It will be pretty thick, like boogers. Mine was brownish red, and I freaked out once I saw it. Haha.

  • This is kind of gross, but when I lost mine I was already a day over due.. but several months before, I was freaking out because when I would take a bath, I would find tiny, tiny pieces of something that looked like clear mucous, and it was, but not the thing you are looking for.. To me, it almost felt like starting my period.. All of a sudden, I felt a huge gush and a sudden urge to pee... it was very bloody and so thick it wouldn't come apart... after that, my contractions started... but I know someone who lost theirs a couple months before their due date.. but there will be no doubt in your mind when you see it.. I promise!!!

  • You'll definitely know...LOL. It will be huge, globby, and can come out many times. It's much bigger than you could ever imagine...hehe. It's usually yellowish, but can be tinted with blood, and other colors.

  • u look at it and say, oh, so THATS a mucus plug! lol. it sounds like something that is confusing, but once it happens its like a duh moment. it really looks exactly like what it sounds like.

  • I'll ask on here instead of making another question post. Does it hurt when the mucus plug comes out?
