I never lost my mucus plug but I think it's just brownish, dischargy, kind of gross probably. You can lose it all at once, in other words you would probably go the bathroom and notice something in the toilet bowl matching the description, or you can lose it over time meaning you would see some of the discharge in your panties or when you wipe for a few days. The good news is, I don't think it really means a whole lot, other than the fact that you are nearing delivery. It's not when your water breaks which means it's time to call the doctor and delivery is imminent. It just means your body is getting ready, but you can lose your mucus plug and not go into labor for several more days at least. When things start happening you'll be surprised at yourself for having a sense of what's going on- it's just mother's intuition that something is up. And you can come here to ask all your weird questions. Hugs to you, good luck!
