  • It means you should have had your butt on the phone with your doctor the minute you noticed it. It may or may not have been the need to be seen to know for sure.

  • It means nothing. Mucus Plugs regenerate.

  • I bet that wasn't your mucus plug. You produce a lot of discharge while pregnant.

  • Have you had sex with your SO recently?
    TMI but after my hubby and I have sex, the next day I get what looks like big snot like discharge, and a lot. But only after sex.
    Also, when pregnant you do have a lot more discharge then normal. If you are really concerned call your Dr.

  • Don't worry. Unless you are having other problems - major cramping, contractions, bleeding, etc. Like someone else said, the mucus plug regenerates. You might have lost it, but most likely it was extra discharge or just part. Believe me, you will no so much about discharge after your pregnancy. :D
