TMI...... possibly

So a few weeks ago i noticed that i lost a very small part of my mucus plug. I know it doesn't really mean anything and it "grows" back. So i put it out of my mind.... Until today. I went to the bathroom earlier and when i wiped, there was more. Not just a little but a lot. Globs of it. I had to wipe 4 times just to get it all and this time it was tinged with blood. I thought ok cool my body is preparing which is awesome. But every time I've gone to the bathroom since then there is more. Its never ending. I'm not having any contractions and as far as i know my water is still intact. And again i know it could still be a few weeks. With my first i only lost a few pieces over a several week period and my 2nd i didn't lose it til i was already in labor. This is just weird for me lol.

Has anyone else experienced the never ending yuck or going through it now? Please tell me it'll stop and won't be an every bathroom time trip ordeal for the next few weeks....

I never lost my plug with the other two before labor so I'm no help. I think you should be good as long as there are no contraxtions. I'd say if you start contracting though, don't wait to go in since you've lost so much plug. GL!!

Yes! I have been getting yuck for a few days and just now, I lost all of it. Pink tinged and a big fat glob of it. I think I was losing mine slowly and just now lost it all.

I have not dealt with that, I had to be induced with my first so nothing really natural happened. However during this pregnancy I discovered today that I have a huge swollen vagina :( I don't know which one I'd prefer at this point lol pregnancy is beautiful but not always pretty (or whatever the saying is).

The doctor did say to only call if one of the following happened.... Regular contractions 4 to 5 minutes apart, baby not moving at all, heavy bleeding or water breaking. So unless one of those happen I'm just gonna sit tight and hope its soon lol

My body is weird. Once my water breaks everything stops. With my first my water broke first and nothing was happening so they started pitocin. With my second i had contractions first and they broke my water at 7 cm and everything stopped. After about an hour They started pitocin.

Maybe the swollenness is a sign lol

I'll be 37 weeks on Sunday. I'm not hoping that I'll go into labor in the next few days or even week. I would like to make it to 38 weeks at least but less than 40. So some where in that 2 week time frame. Both my 1st two were born after 40 weeks.
