You should notice, at least I did.  Thick mucus that came out when I went to the bathroom.  It had a few strands of blood in it and actually plopped into the toilet.  I was so excited... Good luck!

Well, I have to disagree a bit...it's not always overly obvious.  Mine came in tiny bits an pieces over time.  The only real indicator was what looked like a bit of spotting.  When I saw my OB, she said it was just my mucus plug beginning to come away.  All the best to you!

I dont remember seeing anything with my first two.  But the other day I wiped and had a glob of white stuff and a little blood.  The doctor told me it was part of my mucus plug.

you probablu havent lost it all, but its a really good sign, it means your cervix is starting to soften and ripen so you may find yourself loosing abit more in a few days :)

Hi,

the mucous plug is kinda like yellowish egg white.

It can come out all at once and have some blood in it, or it can be clear with no blood and come out slowly over a period of time.

it is not unusual to have lots of mucous in the last few weeks.... I get big globs of the stuff from time to time (sorry TMI) and I am 35 weeks and expecting to go full term.
