Mucus Plug *PICTURE Cortnie. 1 child; Michigan 3116 posts

I don't want to gross anyone out. But this is the second time this has happened. I started losing my mucus plug about a week & a half ago. But didn't get a picture of it. This time I took one. & It has a little blood in it.

I'm not 100% sure if this is part of my mucus plug, so mamas who have lost theirs, let me know!
& should I be worried? Last time I went to the L&D but everything was fine.

That is sort of what mine looked like, but I had alot more blood in mine. Call your doctor! I don't think its safe to be losing your mucus plug this early....

So you guys don't think its my mucus plug?? That was all I wanted to know. I'm not too worried since I'm not cramping or anything.

It's normal to have sorta snotty discharge. I got that a lot. I wouldn't worry too much. Even if it is your plug, it will regnenrate. It's not a sign of impending labor, I know my sister kept losing hers from 20 some weeks on

I do believe that is some of your mucus plug. I would for sure call your dr. That looks like way to much to just be dishcharge. And if you lost some before then it might be all gone with that one. But, your dr might just tell you that it will regrow. But still call.

thats what mine looked like, i started losing it in the beginning of my third trimester ,then i lost a HUGE amount of it around 38 weeks and then the day before i went into labor i lost the rest and had a ton of bloody show. when i first started losing it, it was about the same amount as yours, your mucus plug can always reform and sometimes it is normal to lose some of it early on. when i lost the last bit i'd say it was about 4-5 tablespoons altogether (but that might be including the bloody show, idk.) i wouldn't worry about the small amount but bring it up to your doctor.
