Re: what is a mucas plug?

A mucus plug is a build up of mucus that literally plugs the cervix shut. This is to prevent any bacteria from getting into your uterus and possibly causing infection in your uterus or baby. It is a very good thing to have and as far as I know it you do have one now. It gets bigger and thicker as the pregnancy progresses which is why when you start to dialate it starts to loosen and fall out and is almost unmistakenable! Hope this helps a little.

Re: what is a mucas plug?

I was kinda wondering the same thing..i heard you know when it comes, but it possible to lose a little bit at a time at 22 weeks?? im 23 weeks now but about a week ago i had this stretchy very light colored stuff come out and i had no idea what it stopped and i havent had it since but would this be normal?? could it be part of the mucus plug or something else?
