Some lose it in a chunk or 2, and some get it slowly.  It's normal for it to get loose and come out over time like yours though!

Its very normal my Gyn said it can also happen over days little by little up to 3 weeks before actual labor. This happened to me at 36 and a half weeks and she said it was perfectly normal at that time, that my baby was not ready for labor yet...my son was born the next day!!!

Nope, your not considered early at all. YOur right in the perfect time frame. YOu can loose you mucus plug in pieces or all at once. Loosing your mucus plug however doesn't mean your going into labor. I lost mine 4 days before I went into labor and other woman walked around weeks after loosing their plug. However since you are 39 weeks I would like to think you shouldn't be to far off from welcoming your new baby.

 with dd#1 i lost mine for a week, or more before i went into labor.  it was a thick, bloody, snot-like discharge and i actually had to wear a pad to help deal with it  (soooo gross!).  with dd#2 i lost it in one chunk.  so far this time around i haven't had to deal with that, but it won't be long now!

I think it depends. I lost mine 2 weeks before my due date and I still ended up being induced after my date.

Hang in there -- soon you'll have a baby!

Mine took all day to come out in pieces along with bloody show. That was a couple days ago.
