Mucus Plug ?? TMI Little Richard's mommie! Due July 12 (boy); 1 child; Seneca, South Carolina 4430 posts

So I "think" I have lost my plug. I am not sure, it was after SO and I had sex. I went to pee, and when I wiped (I've been looking everytime I go to see if I would lose it) and I noticed on the paper there was a string of snot looking stuff....My first thought was my plug. But then I started thinking it wasn't any color but like green snot. Does this sound like I lost my plug? What should I expect now? And also what is the use of your plug (my mom said it's what keeps your cervix shut, and now I should begin to progress some). Should I expect labor in the next few weeks?

if there isn't any blood then don't worry about it. the plug can renew itself.

Nope no blood, I am not worried just curious if this sounds like my plug?

I feel like it may have been. I know my mom won't know everything, but that is how she said she began losing her's. That it would be nothing but what snot looks like, it was a big glob of snot and I never have discharge like that.

it was probably a PIECE of your plug, but since there was no bloody show then it wasn't your entire plug.

My mom did say that with everyone of us (5 kids) she lost her plug within 2 weeks of the time she had them. So she told me she thinks I have maybe right at 2 weeks until i will go into labor. I am not really nervous about it because he will come when he is ready, and I am almost 37 weeks so I am just about to the safe point of having him. But I won't rush it because i know he will appear when he wants too :D
