Did I lose my mucus plug?

Posted by ladybug

I will be 28 weeks pregnant on 11/10 and I think I may have lost my mucus plug. I had gone to the bathroom and when I wiped there was a yellowish (yet clear) snot like substance on the toilet paper. Could that be my mucus plug and if so should I be worried about losing it at only 28 weeks?

i am 28 weeks pregnant and i thought i lost my mucus plug 4 days was just a white chunk like in the toilet??? im just not sure though!!!  i have been spotting every time i go pee and wipe but it's not a lot and its pink. i dont know if it was my mucus plug though....what do you all think???
I am currently 25 weeks pregnant and just had the same thing happen to me. I called the doctor and he said that is just sounds like regular discharge. If you start having any cramping or discomfort I would call the doctor right away.
Its a possibility that it may be your mucus plug. I say this because I myself have had a stringy mucus coming out everytime i wipe. You should go get checked with your doctor. I didnt bother to ask my doctor cuz i thought it was just discharge but at my 30 week appt i was hospitalized for having contractions and being 3 cm dilated. come to find out it wasnt discharge i was having. I am currently on bed rest and the mucus has stoped till today lol.. Oh ! and by the way the mucus plug does not have to be pink or red or bloody, mine was clear and it continues to be clear. So just go get checked or ask your OB to be on the safe side.
iv just had the same but u can strech it is that my mucus plug

Chances are, it wasn't your mucus plug.  From your description, it sounds like regular discharge caused by your elevated hormones.  If I'm wrong, and it is your mucus plug, I wouldn't worry as they can grow back. Some women never lose it, others lose a mucus plug multiple times.  It is in no way a reliable sign of impending labor.


If you start having contractions after passing this discharge or you notice that it is tinged pink, red or brown, tell your doctor immediately.
