**is losing your mucus plus obvious?**


Morning ladies

as the title says, is it obvious when you are losing or have lost your mucus plus? I mean, is it big enough that you can see?

What does this mean? Does labour follow soob after?

Thanks ladies

Nicola xx

People can loose there plug upto a week before birth, and it looks like thick discharge with either blood in it or a pink tinge. Hope this helps x

As Archie's Mommy said, it's just like that, and usually quite a bit..It would be hard to miss

Sounds like it could be your plug!

It doesnt always mean labour is imminent though as the plug can rebuild itself. Lost mine at 37 weeks with my daughter but still ended up going 4 days over

I've not lost mine yet, but I've been told some people don't see theirs, because they lose it whilst in labour xx

Mine was a big blob, like egg white with a brown streak in it.

It depends if you lose your plug in one go or not. Ive been loosing mine gradually for past 2 weeks and it looks like someone has sneezed in your knickers but its clear instead of green (tmi!). I have not felt any contractions etc and have not lost my waters so no, labour does not always follow. I BELIEVE that if you lose all you MP i one go, labour can usually take around a week to start and your MP is usually steaked with pink/red blood.
Bear in mind though that not ALL women lose their MP before labour as i never lost mine with DD untill well into it. x

i was losing my plug in bits for about 10 days before i went into labour - it's like really thick gloop and was easy to tell the difference between that and normal discharge. If you are close to your due date i think it is a good sign that your cervix is changing and starting to soften / dilate which dislodges the plug. Your show is the bit that comes just before labour - for me i lost what looked like more plug but it was tinged with blood and i went into labour a couple of hours later xxx
