Lost mucus plug

(11 Posts)

Hey everyone.

I think I just lost my mucus plug. I'm 38+5 and I was cleaning the shower after I got out of it when I smelt something really weird (sorry tmi) it smelt a bit salty or fishy (like an after sex smell iykwim). I sat on the loo and a big clump of brown/old blood coloured mucus fell out.

That's the plug right? What's likely to happen now? I had a sweep Monday as I will be induced at term due to medical issues.

I'm scared!!

Or was it a show? What's the difference?!

I don't think there's a difference. Now you just wait but FX it may be a sign labour is about to start soon

A "show" is a "show" of your mucus plug.

I lost mine last night after yesterday's sweep, race you?!

Sadly when you usually loose it it can take 2 weeks for anything to happen. I've got my induction booked for Saturday though so I know it'll happen.

Good luck!

I lost the mucus plug and went in and stayed at 1cm!! finally had to be induced as waters round his head started leaking. I never forget thinking im gonna leave the hospital again with my son! hes 8 now time has passed so quickly!

Aaah I guessed it would probably take ages for anything to happen! At least its a start I suppose.

Good luck Shropshire! FX you go before Saturday.

I had a sweep on Monday too and have been losing the plug in stages since then. I keep thinking it might be happening but nothing so far. Good luck to those of you waiting for things to start.

Thanks pink.

I have another sweep booked for tomorrow even though I'm being induced. As much as I'd like it to happen of its own accord I could do without another probe/lesbian encounter.

Hi I lost my plug at 40w in my last pregnancy and was convinced things were starting but I didn't go into labour until I was 42 weeks. Those 2 weeks of waiting were agonising! I hope things happen more quickly for you.
