    I am 32 weeks gone today and just went for a wee and when I wiped a MASSIVE (and I mean BIG) clump of green snot stuff come out my girly bits and was on the tissue! I have rang my midwife who said its normal, not to worry and that you can loose your plug a good 5 weeks or so before you go into labour - does this mean that my baby is comming before her due date? Can I still have sex? Why has this happend - is it cos I have been using thrush cream? (I thought you lost your plug like 2 weeks before going into labour which would make her premeture??) I am really scared and midwife seemed in a rush to get me off the phone:cry:

    Your mucus plug can actually regenerate itself and NO it doesn't necessarily mean your baby will be premature. In fact there in no correlation between when you loose it and when you have baby......some people don't loose theirs till they are in labor and like 5-6 cms! If your MW wasn't concerned and said it was normal then I would try to relax.

    I lost mine at 30+5 and was told it would regenerate. It hasn't. I can tell that it has been trying and it just sort of falls back out. My doctor said that that is okay too.

    I lost my plug in labour, or so I thought cos there was loads, then there was loads more every once in a while over the next few hours. So you may still have some plug in there!

    UPDATE:

    Just got back from hospital. Well I had an internal examnation (my first one) and GOD IT HURT SO MUCH I cried :-( my hubby held my hand though. They confirmed it was part of the plug but my cervix is still closed and baby seems fine, although I am having contractions/ tightenings that were being picked up on the monitor that I can't feel at all that were reaching 50 on the scale thing!! I can't feel them and they don't hurt though. They sent me home on promise if I begin to have pain with the contractions/ tightenings or I loose any fluid/ blood I am to come straight back in. Also told I am not allowed sex now until after baby is born..............which I thought was strange? I think it's cos they are worried more of the plug will come away and then I'll end up going into early labour? They said if I had been 36 weeks plus, they wouldn't be to worried. x

    Hi Tiggerpony - glad to hear cervix is still closed. Hopefully baby will stay in safe and sound. I just wanted to comment on the tightenings - I was hooked up to a monitor on Saturday night as was worried baby was moving too much. They asked if I'd had any tightenings or contractions and I said no as I hadn't felt anything - then they discovered on the monitor that I was having them and they were going up to 90 but did I notice. Nope! I am glad it's not just me!
