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 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!
im so jealous! i had sweep on monday, had bit of pinky brown mucous (nice, but not as nice as the full on jellyfish thing!) felt like stuff might be happening, then it all died off. boo. maybe another sweep tomoro might help. so gutted x
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.
