With my first I lost it at once. Prior to seeing it I had thought that they really could have come up with a better name. There is no other name for it. It is the biggest wad of snot you'll see. Mine was tanish in color, but I never saw any show until my kids were on the way out. My dr was po'd at me for not calling him when I lost it(plus I'd been having contractions for the 3rd day). Gosh, in that medical emergency
: of losing my plug I made it to my dr's appt 3 hours later and didn't have her for another 2 days.
With my next I never saw it, don't know where it went.lol
With my 3rd I lost it in lots and lots of tiny bits and pieces for 10 weeks. Then when my water broke before I went into labour it was non-stop mucous(way more than I had water) every couple of minutes until I was augmented 17hours later and I probably still had it but I was in a bed.
