Early Labor signs--it's gettting close!! - Page 5

post #81 of 90

I have a super-TMI mucous plug question!! I think I lost some of mine last night. It seemed like everyone else's descriptions - kind of a blood-tinged blob of goo - but it also had what looked like a chunk of pink tissue or something in it! With my other 2 kids, my mucous plug was just gooey and bloody and I don't remember anything else in it. I'll admit it freaked me out a little. Everything else seems normal and  fine...I just wanted to ask you ladies if this sounded totally weird to you/ if it is something to be concerned about?! Aside from the yuck-factor, I am happy to have another sign of labor approaching!

OMG OMG OMG so exciting!

And, as with all these mucous plus posts, so gross as well winky.gif

I'd bet that "pink tissue" wasn't really tissue, but bloody mucous plug.

yes, super exciting!...there was a little blood streaked in the goo...but also what appeared to be a pink chunk (gross, I know, sorry!). I guess it  could have just been slightly bloody mucous? I probably shouldn't worry myself over it. It just caught me by surprise and I was like ah! whats that thing in there?! haha

Love the mucus plug chat! I might be weird, but I thought mine was pretty amazing. And when I flushed it I said a little thanks (like, thanks for protecting my baby for so many months!). :)

 

I just wish the loss of the plug would have helped get this show on the road!

I'm kind of digging the mucus plug chat too.  NO ONE EVER talks about it!  Why is that!?  I guess because it's gross.  lol  Anyway, I never lost it with DD, I don't think.  I don't remember it if I did.  So I guess that's part of why I'm fascinated by it.

 

Meredith, if you're brave you can Google mucus plug and find some helpful pictures.  It really does come in all different sorts!

The loss of the  plug doesn't really mean labor will start... I know, bummer!  And you can actually make a new one... so... it might not be the end of it. LOL

Haha aww that's a bummer that it might not mean anything! Especially since I lost a little more of it this afternoon after being on the birth ball for a while. I havent had a single contraction this evening though so unfortunately forest you might be right....this doesn't seem like its the end. Oh, the anticipation!!

LOL you guys know the mucus plug is the only thing I want to gag about in ALL of birth chat. It is gross to me! Yet I cant peel myself away. lol
I keep watching for mine just in case it comes early.

I remembered my second babe the mucus plug did come out like a bunch of snotty boogers. It was my first one that it looked like a tampon of snot on.
