Even with this being my third, I have never noticed losing my mucous plug. TMI! After I peed tonight when I wiped, there was a large amount of what looked like EWCM on the toliet paper. It was clear. Any thoughts on if this could be my plug? I was reading on the Internet tonight and it sounds like it could be. I am not too worried about it, just curious.
I lost some of my mine my last month with DS and it was (sorry TMI) really thick and chunky even if it was only tiny bits of it. It never caused me labor or anything though. It had a bit of blood in it too if I remember correctly. I think mentioning it to your doc like you said is probably a good idea just to be safe.
ITA with everyone, super cute pic!!
I always get a TON of mucus during pregnancy, and more as the pregnancy goes on. Yeah, I guess it could just mean dilation??? I am always super dilated by the time labor starts (I was a 7 with #3 before labor started). When I actually lose my plug, it has always had blood in it, and I'm in labor within a week.
Anyway Heather, it is possible to dilate beforehand without knowing it. I have been at least 3-4 before labor started with all of mine, except my first (I was only a 2 with her).
