What was it like when you lost your mucus plug? I get the general idea, but how much of it is there? i went to pee & there was a thicker-than-snot like glob on the toilet paper, kind of white or clearish I guess, but too thick to be discharge. So how was it
I haven't lost my whole plug, but I've been steadily losing pieces of it for a few weeks now. It's coming out in clumps for me. Like about the size of a gum ball each time. They've been clear sometimes, and sometimes they've been a milky white with the tiniest specks of blood, like little pinpricks on it. My ob says you can tell the difference between discharge and pieces of the plug by (this is gross, sorry!) Squeezing it. If it retains it's shape when you let go, it's the plug, if it doesn't keep it's shape it's just discharge.
