Can you lose your mucus plug in early pregnancy?
Depends what you mean by "early pregnancy" since it doesn't start to shape until after the first trimester. Yes you can lose it in early pregnancy, or parts of it, and see your doctor if that is what you think. It regenerates though if you lose it early. If it was the mucus plug it should have been some brown or maybe even red in it. Sometimes the normal discharge (the milky white stuff) can hang up in the vaginal area and when it comes out it can be thick and clumpy.

Cervical mucus could be early pregnancy discharge. But it could also be: Normal vaginal discharge. Yeast infection discharge. Ovulation discharge. … Here is more input from WikiAnswers Contributors: I remember seeing that thick stuff that looked like snot on my tissue and thinking, "What is this?" I certainly experienced that stuff during my two pregnancies. I had a doomed pregnancy a few months ago with a miscarriage at only about 6 weeks, and I did have the same excess of "snotty" discharge. I am now confirmed pregnant at about 5 weeks and am experiencing the same thing! So I think it can be a symptom, but not a guarantee that you are pregnant. I had an increase in cervical mucus and remember thinking how odd that was because I am not normally like that. I was, in fact, pregnant. I am no expert, but this would be my third pregnancy and I am showing those same signs. I would say like ovulating but milky. Yes usually I am dry a few days out of the month but not this month. I noticed a lot of cervical mucus when I became pregnant, which was unusual before my period. (I miscarried at 8 weeks.) My husband and I have been trying only for a month or so now. I was also curious about this question. Sometimes ejaculate can look a lot like cervical mucus, and it is difficult not to confuse the two. How about if you are still discharging after your missed period, its been 2 weeks and a day since i had unprotected sex, and My periods are very regular and yet I don't have it. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, I suppose I am too early on taking it. I have headaches/bloating/fatigue/frequent urination/missed period/nausea but not vomiting/cramping/and discharge. Do you suppose I could be pregnant?
The great mystery.. sometimes weeks before, and then the plugrebuilds itself.. sometimes days before.. sometimes not until youare ready to deliver. .it's not really a trustwor…thy sign ofimpending labor. I've been loosing my plug for about 3 weeks now, with no labor. Forsome it is a sign of labor will start in 1 to 7 days, not for me! Ilike to think I'm in painless labor now as I'm 2 cm and 80% effacedat 39+ weeks. Enjoying the painfree progression! I LOST MINE WHILEI WAS IN LABOR I began losing a non- bloody mucous plug at around29 weeks during all of my pregnancies. Research has enlightened meon the fact that this is common and often goes un-noticed by manywomen. Every woman and every loss of your mucus plug is going to bedifferent. With my first, I lost it the night before I had her. Istarted to get contractions straight away. With this one, I am now39weeks and 3days and I lost my first one 4 Fridays ago, then lastTuesday and then one yesterday. They say not to pack your bags andrush up to the hospital as soon as it happens. It's thecontractions or bleeding that you worry about. If you do getworried or anything, ring the labour ward and talk to them. They dothis every single day. They will put your mind at ease. I didn'tlose mine until about 9 hours after my first contraction and 3hours before my daughter was born.
Answer Why would you want to? It helps keep bacteria from entering your uterus. It does not determine when you will go into labor. Some women loose theirs ear…ly and even grows back.
no you will get stronger.
When you are pregnant you have a mucus plug that is there to stop bacteria entering your uterus and harming the baby. As you approach your due date and your cervix thins… and dilates, the mucus plug can come out. It is just like a big bit of goo. Some women report seeing it fall into the toilet. Some women never notice it go. And sometimes it is still there when you go into labour. You can lose your plug up to two weeks before you go into labour, but it is one of the "signs" that your time is near.
A sign of impending labor and delivery. have your self be evaluated.
right before the onset of labor
After checking with an OB, it is safe to swim in a swimming pool after your mucus plug has come away. Once your waters break, under no circumstances should you sit/swim in an…y stagnant water, even a personal swimming pool. The baby is no longer protected by the amniotic fluid.
if your looking to lose your mucus plug to start labour, this may not happen as you can lose your mucus plug as little as 26 weeks and not go into labour. i would highly not a…dvise you to purposely lose your mucus plug as it is what prevents bacteria getting to the baby!!!!!!!! let it happen naturaly its much safer for your baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
You can, but i constantly lost mine & it grew back a little throughout the whole pregnancy.
Was it kinda bloody too. Are you sure its your plug and not just discharge.
Usually the airline have a limit for pregnant women for flying, around 7 months, so if you are about to start labor anytime it is def not allowed.
Yes, you can shed the mucous plug slowly leading up to labor. I started shedding in week 33 and in week 34, there hasn't been anymore just yet.
Yes. Cause even tho you lose it most woman don't notice.
Some women do depending on how sensitive their cervix is
Yes, I would think you could. Pregnancy lasts 38 weeks usually and usually you lose your mucus plug a few days before labor. It could be a sign of premature labor. I would cal…l your DOCTOR if this is happening to you. Your DOCTOR may want to see you as premature births can be hazardous to the baby.
