how do i know if ive lost my mucous plug? i know its a dicharge type thing sometimes bloody. but i have no idea if this is that or not. a couple days ago i had a boil that was draining and now its fully gone but im still having blood,dischargy looking stains in my underwear, is there any definate way to tell if this is from the plug, or if its something else? theres no way it can be from the boil bc thats completely gone.

How far along are you?

anywhere from 28w5d- 29w5d, but thats a long story about the range. but im very strongly believe i will deliver early, so thats why im worried.

My sister was 38 weeks when she lost her plug, so I wouldn't think yours would come out already. Have you called the doctor yet?? I would call, just to be safe - and in case something is wrong. Good luck!!

nah i havent called the doctor shes always said everything was fine. i go again next friday. if it keeps up by the end of this week then ill call, i guess theres always the chance that its still the boil but im pretty sure that its gone. so if it keeps up then ill know its not the boil and i should call. i just wish i knew exactly what it looks like and stuff.

Your mucus plug will look like a big chunck of snot, sometimes tinged with brown or pink, sometimes off white. You can loose it all at once, or in bits and peices. I am 24 weeks and have lost some of mine already, and my doc said nothing to worry about, because it regenerates.
