Was it kinda bloody too. Are you sure its your plug and not just discharge.

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 advise 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

YES - not every woman will lose her mucus plug... Sometimes you dilate without dilating enough to lose the plug, and contractions and labor can start before you lose the plug!

Yes its perfectly normal for mucus plug to be tinged Green or Yellow. Mucus plus means exactly that .. Mucus..

Well in some cases but it would be best to talk to your doctor about it.

well, your cervix is closed when you loose your mucus plug. When your mucus plug comes out, that means that your cervix is starting to deface and dialate.

As soon as possible, as losing your mucus plug can be fatal within 24 hours.

I have had two children, and never noticed the plug. So, you may notice when you lose it, or not.

right before the onset of labor

In the later stages of pregnancy, yes it can

Some women do depending on how sensitive their cervix is

Yes. Cause even tho you lose it most woman don't notice.

Yes, it's normal. It could be your cervix softening and your mucus plug going away. If there's a lot of bleeding, go to the hospital.

Not always. The mucus plug would stretch across a finger tip. As dilation continues it will be washed away with normal fluids.

Usually nothing. Speak to your doctor if you are worried.

as soon as you lose your mucus plug you should go to the hospital cause the baby is on its way

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.

Yes! Immediately! Losing your mucous plug means that your water is about to break and you are about to go into labor.

The mucus plug is clear to yellow in color, or occasionally tinged with blood. The mucus plug feels like the consistency of raw egg.

It could be several things. It could be the beginnings of your period, implantation bleeding, infection, unexplained bleeding in pregnancy, or loss of mucus plug if in advanced pregnancy.

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.

It varies with every woman. You can't necessarily estimate how long it takes. Some women can lose their mucus plug at 28 to 36 weeks and still don't go into labor for a few other weeks. Losing your mucus plug is a good sign that your body is preparing for labor, but it is not a sign that labor is imminent.

If it is the last trimester it could be the mucus plug
