Bye Bye Mucus Plug

Sun, 03-11-2012 - 3:17pm

I'm pretty sure mine just went. I was having a lot of regular discharge the past couple of days but just a little bit ago when I went to the bathroom and wiped, there was a big 'wad' (sorry) of thicker and not yellow but yellower discharge. No odor or anything else to be concerned about. It was just a lot.

Still 5 weeks to go for me and I never go early so I'm not expecting anything to get going or anything - though if I knew the baby was healthy and developed enough, I'd be ok to get this show on the road! :)

I have never lost mine. Except when I've been in labor.
Well it must mean something.....
2 weeks early would work for me!!!!!

It's nice to know that things have gotten started, even though there are still a few weeks to go. I think I may have lost part(s) of my plug as I had some brownish/pink thick glop last week. All I know is that we are all getting so close to the end that I am looking forward to hearing about people heading in to deliver and reading everyone's birthing stories. So exciting!

yes - we should! I will send an email off to the mods and see what we can get going. It's been way too long since I've been a CL and forget when to do these things. :)

I can't believe May has one already. That makes me sad though - it's too early. I'm so thankful that all of our babies are staying put so far!!

I do too! Can't wait to read some. I agree though, a May baby born at this time is a bit early. Hopefully all is going well with that little one.

Definitely a nice little thing to remind you that you're getting to the end of the road on this pregnancy. I've noticed a big uptick in thick goop the last few weeks too, though I can't say that in any pregnancy I've ever noticeably lost my mucous plug. It would have to be really obvious for me to know that's what it was.

That's why I'm nearly certain this was it - I think I lost it over time before with the others. This was so much in one goop and different than usual. Much more sickly snot like - sorry - but that's the best way I can describe it.

At least you are making some progress! Maybe this baby will come earlier than the others.

I have noticed an increase in mucous lately but no big hunks that look like the plug
