1 Bump

Mucous Plug? adult content

I think that I am losing pieces of my plug. It is not bloody though. It is just goobery... I am 33 weeks pregnant.

When did you lose your plug, and how long after did you have the baby?

With my first, I lost my plug at the hospital and with my second, I lost my plug a week before the baby came, at a doctor appointment, when I got checked. So, it is unusual for ME to lose my plug this early.

  • It grows back, so isn't really an indication of labor. Some never loose it till right at the end. Others can loose it weeks or months before labor.

  • I lost mine at 33 weeks too. I am 38 weeks today. My doctor told me that my body would just make a new one, which I have been losing for the past 3 days

  • Ok, thanks ladies. I figured all was good. I have been having this goobery stuff for about a month now, so I wasn't extremely worried.

  • I have no experience with this one ...thank goodness haha! With my son they induced me a week early and I was in labor for 36 hours before he actually came out and they had to break my water for me to try to accelerate the whole process...!
