I lost part of my mucus plug(and posted a thread about it lol) and its normal. What you describe doesn't sound like a mucus plug though, believe me its very distinctive. You can't spread it in your hand. Its not hard, but its definitely a solid. Looks kind of like clear or yellowish jello.
Just be brave and google it lol(I did when it happened to me and it wasn't that bad)

lol, yeah, i remember losing it with my daughter, but i was 35 weeks then, so i understood it and was cool with it. she was born 2 weeks later. this was less chunky than that was. this was a little yellowish chunk and a really long yellowish clear stringy type thing. when i lost it with my daughter, it was big chunks and was kind of grayish, if i remember correctly, lol. eww. and it didn't happen again next time i went to the bathroom. but.... we did just do the deed now, so.... i hope that doesn't make it worse.

Quoting i don't make vaginas.:" <blockquote><b>Quoting MommaNoodle:</b>" gaaaahhhh. i totally don't want to freak out ... [snip!] ... a few weeks ago..I remember her posting about it! & yes it regenerates! Just let your Ob/midwife know & see what he/she says."


i have an appt on the 23rd. i guess i'll wait until then. it's less than 2 weeks away. if it gets worse, i might call, or i can e-mail questions in too. i just wanted more validation that it really does happen early and regenerates, lol. because i only heard about it doing that AFTER i had already given birth and didn't need to worry about it.

ok, the consensus is if it's brown/red/bloody then i should worry. if it's yellow and boogery, i'm cool. lol. gross, but good to know. i'm still going to mention it. i've been sick too. i wonder if that has an effect on it?..... i should ask them. i had a bad cold for like weeks, and it's still lingering, even after taking a week of antibiotics. maybe that's kind of part of it.... just a thought.

I've never heard of it having a correlation but come to think of it I might have been sick too.
I was so shocked, I never lost it with my son as far as I know so I was NOT expecting that lol
And then I knew it was fine to lose it before 40 weeks but I wasn't sure how early.

Omg I feel baby all the time now! Is it weird it still doesn't feel real yet?? I am missing the football game and getting to see my sister dance because I am in bed by nine ish and my back can't do bleacher seats :-(



I also think I broke my thumb. And I can find out the sex in a couple weeks for fifty bucks and I think my mom and grandma are paying for the deluxe package :-)
