If you don't loses your plug all at once can you tell? I mean if it comes out in bits and pieces do you notice them? Or if you have a slow leak when your water breaks do you notice that?

I lost my mucus plug over a week and I could tell. My water didnt break all at once it started leaking/breaking at 845 and leaked till about 11. But I could tell it was my water it would stop for a minute or so then leak again.

My water was leaking with my first and aparently it was the tiniest leak because I never noticed it... I meanI had to wear a panty liner but I never realized it was my water until my doctor checked it and I guess I was leaking!

I lost my plug a week bf my water broke. I noticed while i was wipping after going potty. 2 times i saw bits of it.
When my water broke a week later. I was on the way to my bathroom to pee.
And felt a trickel down my leg. I knew i didnt pee!
So i went on to the bathroom and i think it finished breaking and lol i think i went pee too. Beings thats why i was on the way to the rr in the first place! lol

I had my show a few hours after my OB app. and had the "bloody show" in the middle of the night.
Do you know if you had your show yet? its mucousy white, with dark red in it (for most womeni believe) and the bloody show is darkish red/brown discharge.
Some women lose thier plug all at once, some in pieces. If you arent completely sure, call your OB and ask.

i lost my plug with my daughter around 36 weeks and had her at 38. the dr broke my water at the hospital, omg it felt nasty, lol.

with my son, i lost my plug over 3 weeks...from week 34-37. as they were going to break the water with him, it broke on its own right before the nurse asked me to lift my gown so she could pop it.

with this one, i'm scared it will break here at home. i've been losing my plug since 32 wks. i think it regrew...pretty sure it did
