Mucus Plug formation question..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I have some confusion about the mucus plug. I read somewhere that it closes up(?) or forms(?) at week 6. If that is so how do things like old brown blood come out? Does that mean its not sealed yet? Because I'd imagine once its sealed you don't loose it until much later on in pregnancy when its closer to time of delivery yes? No other cervical fluid should pass after its formed right?

 

I had that random brown spotting yesterday afternoon followed by serious constipation this am (spent 20 minutes in there doing toilet yoga to try to work it out!) and the worlds tiniest brown thread of material then creamy blob then thats it. Nada. Wondering if plug isn't formed yet and that was implantation old blood working itself out before closure?

 

Sorry for being such a newb! Google was confusing me. I trust all you mamas!

No idea but good question! I have heard the plug regenerates. I lost pieces of plug several times toward the end of both of my pregnancies. I guess it just grew back. It went on for weeks that way.
