Did I lose my mucous plug?

Hello ya'll. I am 34 weeks exactly today.This is quite embarassing but I was sitting on the couch and I felt a small trickle come out from down there and went to go check it out. I'm not sure if the trickle was fluid or what but when I wiped there was a fairly large glob of clear/white mucous, then a lil more came out. There was no blood whatsoever, no color really just clear whith a lil white. I'm not showing an signs of labor or anything that I know of, but have been having alot of braxton hicks. I see my doctor this coming Wednesday and I will ask about it then however does this sound like I lost the plug? if not what else could it have been. I would appreciate any input. thanks

Hi -

Odd discharges can happen in pregnancy, but go ahead and call your doctor anyway and let the doctor decide if you need to be seen sooner than Wednesday. No sense guessing, waiting, or hoping all is well - better to ask than wish you had!

Is it possible to not notice if you lose your plug because you wear pads?
I use them because of my bladder during pregnancy.

RainyNight, let us know what the doctor says. I'm new to this as well!

Re: Did I lose my mucous plug?

I've only had one baby and show seems to be one of those things you NEVER discuss with your friends so I don't have a lot to go on here but when I had ds I was induced. When I lost my plug I'd been in the hospital off and on for 36 hours and had had 3-4 internals. It was a huge amount of sticky 'stuff' mostly off white but some black blood (old blood). I think that it is usually a pretty large amount.
