Has anyone heard this before?

Posted: Fri Jun 24, 2005 3:19 pm Post subject: Has anyone heard this before?


Wednesday a huge amount of the mucus plug dislodged and since then I have seen little bits of it every time I go to the bathroom. I called my doctors office after it happened to let them know and the nurse I spoke to said that it doesnt mean a thing that my body will just make new ones and that it does not mean labor is closer than it was before it happened.
Now heres the thing Im not a medical expert, I do not have an OB educatin but I think what that nurse told me was total garbage I have never heard that before and going through three pregnancies I have read and researched everything. I told my mom what the nurse had said, she felt the same as I did she also never heard of that either, but to make sure she asked two nurses that she works with and they BOTH said that what I was told wasnt true. They are geriatric RN's not OB RN's but they are still nurses.
Has anyone else been told that or read it anywhere?

Re: Has anyone heard this before?

I have never heard that before. I know that i didn't loose my whole mucus plug at once. I had pieces of it come out when i went to the bathroom a few times. Then finally one time it was a whole bunch of it. I still didn't go into labor for another like 3 weeks or so. So i think that when that comes out it doesn't mean labor is going to come soon. To me 3 weeks is still a while when your that pregnant.

I heard that before. I don't believe it though. This is why...I lost my plug while in labor and it came out in huge clumps and had blood in it...definately a sign labor was on the way and don't think I grew one back!

Re: Has anyone heard this before?

With my first pregnancy I lost the plug, once.

With my second pregnancy the exact same thing happened to me as what has happened to you. The plug came out and I thought "this was it!", but it grew back. For the following 2 weeks I went through bits of the plug coming out and regrowing - it even grew back after my doctor stripped my membranes! My little bambino just didn't want to come out I guess! I delivered 10 days late.

So yes, although it seems unbelievable (I didn't believe it myself) it does happen!

I only know that when I got the show (the mucus plug) I went into labor immediately. I guess everyone is different there.

Re: Has anyone heard this before?

Thank you all for the replies, I guess I was really just hopeing that I would be going into labor soon but I guess not - oh well.
I honestly never heard of it regenerating and since with both my first two babies I lost it during labor I thought for sure it meant I would have the baby sooner.

Re: Has anyone heard this before?

I lost my mucus plug at 24 weeks, I went to the doctor, and I was dialited to 3. You may want to get checked. It usually is no big deal, but it will put your mind to ease!!
