I went to the labor and delivery yesterday.. cause of cramping and contractions.. they said I was having them just light and I was only 1 cm dilated.. when I went home only 1 and 1/2. I am 27 weeks.. but now have like this clear discharge that is thick like glue.. about a quarter size when I wipe.. anyone know what this is?

  • I lost my mucus plug like 4 weeks before actually going into labor. I was worried but the doctor just said that my body was getting ready. Wishing the best of luck :)

  • It is my understanding that the mucus plug can grow back and that you can lose it (or pieces or it) several times before you actually deliver. Hopefully you won't have any further issues!
