I lost mine with baby #4...i remember it.....my other pregnancies i'm not sure about. I've talked to friends who have lost there's before labor and others never saw one. Do you remember seeing yours?
I really feel like i'm in early labor, but i am in doubt because i havent lost my mucus plug and i've told myself that I have to lose it to be in true labor....but i'm starting to think that's not all the way true. Tell about your mucus plug and when you lost it or didnt lose it!
I didn't notice with DS. But I've been looking a lot this time. I know it's easy to not even notice it and certainly have things start up having not seen the mucous plus.
i never noticeably lost it before. I did notice an increased mucus-y discharge the weeks leading up to delivery which was probably a gradual loss of it but I never had it come out at once. Never really had much bloody show either. slight spotting after stripping membranes with dd2 and thats it!! my labor signs were: with dd1 water breaking then contractions and dd#2 contractions!
Mama to DS1 (12/07), DS2 (4/11), and DD (6/22/14)
Finally diagnosed with APS after 3 s (11/09, 3/10, 7/13)
I never remembering seeing mine with DS, though I did notice a lot of mucousy discharge before he was born. With DD I lost it in active labor, it was my first actual transition in labor, threw up and out came the mucous plug. This one I've had some discharge and a bit of plug there too, but haven't lost the whole thing yet, I figure I will either see it or not, but I'm not counting on it coming out before active labor.
I don't remember with my first, but I know with the second I lost it at some point before labor started, or maybe during very early labor? Not sure of timing. But when I lost it, I noticed it while wiping, and it was like I sneezed from my vagina into the toilet paper LOL tons of thick gooey mucous, tinged with some blood.
I've only had spontaneous labor with one of mine and with him I did lose my mucus plug the morning of when labor started.
yes i lost mine about 3 days before i went into labor with ds, it was very definite, a big blob of bloody mucous, tmi i know, but that was on a wednesday and i went into early labor saturday early morning...
I don't remember it with any of my children except for number two and I lost it a whole week before he was born!

I didn't notice it with my daughter, maybe a little bit more discharge in the days leading up to labor, but nothing significant that you could actually call "the plug." I also didn't see any bloody show....I started with contractions and my water broke just before I was ready to push.
