    Default Mucous plug question. Tmi?

    So, i didnt lose it before having Isabelle so i dont really know what to expect. Since i was checked on Tuesday, i have been having lots of discharge and much if it mucous-y, but not a huge blob like I've heard described. I have found large amounts of discharge similiar to EWCM, but beige in color.
    Is it possible that the plug comes out in smaller pieces or is this something else? It's definitely different, i know that.
    Anybody else's experience? Thoughts?

    I've heard it can come out in pieces. Chances are your plug has loosened up since you are dilating/effacing and have had cervical check, so you may be seeing it. Many women don't notice their plug coming out because we are experiencing so much discharge anyway. No personal experience here as I can't remember if I saw anything when I was 4cm dilated & completely effaced at 36 weeks.

    not sure but i lost a huge 1-2 inch chunk, it was clearish and blood streaked. the Wednesday before I had Lilly. She was born on the following Tuesday Am. I have read form other sites that it can be lost in smaller bits.

    Yup, you can loose it in small pieces or in one big glob. Sounds like what you are describing. Basically it looks like you blew your nose in a tissue with a sinus infection (typically yellowish or clear) basically looks like snot, lol. If there are streaks of blood in it- it's most likely your bloody show (same thing as the mucus plug- but usually when there's blood in it- it means labor will start shortly) I've had loss of both with previous pregnancies. Only noticed my "bloody show" with d/d and labor started sometime (I think) within 3 or 4 days of seeing it.

    Thanks. This helps a lot. I keep having lots of mucus like discharge, so much that i am wear ping a panty liner all the time now. I dont know if its just hormonal changes or the mucus plug, probably a combination of both.

    Baby has dropped so much, her bottom is like mid abdomen now. Im just ready for something to start. Its so uncomfortable all the time. And I'm so over people asking me when i think I'll have the baby...... Do they think i have any idea?????? Of course i dont. Wouldnt it be handy if i did? But, no!!!!!!! I have no idea!!!!! And yes, i know im flushed, and puffy, and the baby has dropped..... None of this is new information.
    Rant over i guess.

    I hear ya on the increase in discharge. I actually went into L&D to be checked b/c I thought I was leaking fluid. Turns out it was just discharge. I guess it gets more watery -like towards the end (never remembered that happening in other pregnancies) so I had no idea. This one has been hanging out in the 0 station range as well for the past 4 weeks so I know the pain your feeling. I think I'm actually getting a swollen vein in my lady bits. Oh, the joys of pregnancy. I'm over it for sure. Hang in there momma.
