  • Yep. It doesn't fall out all at once.

  • For some women, it can be in one piece, for some it's many pieces. For me, it was a few small pieces, then a large one. All of these are normal. It can be clear, white, yellow, orange, brown, red or even green.

  • With my daughter I lost it in pieces over about 2 weeks time frame. Some women lose it in one piece and some dont lose it until labor starts. But just because you lose it doesnt mean labor will start right away, it could still be a few weeks off.
