I didn't go into labor for three more weeks, though. :
No labor yet for me, though.

Like the other posters said... seeing the plug doesn't mean immediate labor. Although, it's nice to think that something exciting is happening!
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.

The second time I lost it it was at least the size of a baseball, and clear. HUGE HUGE amounts. I went to the bathroom (there was none in my underwear) and when I wiped I actually yelled out, "Holy !#*$" because it really startled me! All of a sudden my entire hand was covered in it. It was quite dramatic.

I remember thinking 'Coooool!!! I'm really having a baby!'
Like the contractions 3 min apart weren't enough confirmation. :LOL
This is my second pregnancy and I am 34 weeks pregnant, 35 weeks on the 15th. I found this discharge in my underware this morning and THINK it could be my mucous plug. It was white and kind of rubbery and looked like it was part of a broken balloon. It was flat and on the wideish side. Is this my plug? This dishcarge was white, [U]no[/U] pink or brownish tinge at all.
I lost my plug during my first pregnancy but this time it looked different. Also in the first pregnnacy the day I lost my plug, my water broke, don't know if history will repeat itself.
To the OP -- I only noticed my plug with my third and fourth pregnancies. The third time I was it came out just minutes before the baby did, it was round like a jellyfish and had a red spot in the center. The fourth time I lost bits of it for weeks -- sometimes it was stringy, sometimes more like stirred-up gelatin (kind of curdled looking, but clear.) Sometimes tinged brown, sometimes pink.
I don't remember ever seeing it with ds2.

We are weird, and I include myself in this too. I get all excited along with the rest of ya'll. That is why I have to post.
I get curious about my plug, so I will actually feel the texture, and it is thicker than snot and kinda stringy. Looks more stringy too. That is how I can tell the difference, usually. I guess that makes me a little more weirder than the usual person. But then, that is how my analytical brain works.
