    Default Mucous plug or just plain old mucous? *TMI*

    Ok so im 37wks6days... And i just went to the loo and wiped a long string of thick mucous... No blood streaks or anything though... Just wondering what your mucous plugs have looked like as they have started comong out? I never lost my plug with DD (im assuming it came out sometime during labour??) or had any pre-labour symptoms at all with DD... Waters broke and then she was out 2.5hrs later... This pregnancy ive had lots of painful braxton hicks and now mucous (although no BH today)... The suspense is killing me! Its like my body is teasing me this time round! Haha

    Sounds like a bit of plug, but not the whole thing. With DS, I lost mine in one hit, and it was a BIG handful of goo. A bit like clag glue but more see-through and slippery. Eww

    Lol thanks... Yes it was hella slippery! Ive dealth with lots of mucous in my farm/vet life (think calving cows haha) and know it was definitely a string of mucous... I just wasnt sure if any mucous discharge is always a bit of plug, or if we make just plain mucous plus the plug.. If that makes sense?

    I lost my plug gradually between 36 and 41 weeks, then birthed at 41+3
    Fingers crossed for you!

    Sorry to hijack but I'd also be interested to find out how long after you had your bloody show did you go into labour?

    I lost my plug at @ 40 weeks after having contractions for about 5 hours. It looked like a big clear glob of egg whites but was blood streaked.
