I don't know. I'll ask today when I go in to my appointment. I think you've started to dilate once its comes out. With my second I was dilated to 4 cm when it came out, I went into labor that same day it came out. It was brown and bloody. But this time I just had a big glump of clear discharge come out. Don't know if its a mucus plug or not.?
Went to my appointment today dr said it was my mucus plug if it was sticky and thick, they're not always bloody. So it was my mucus plug. :) I'm 2 cm dilated, he's said he thinks I have another week to go. :) I'm so excited! :)
