Did you go in to get checked? They might swab for infection incase it's your mucus plug. I lost my plug during my induction first time round and don't really remember but the same thing happened to me this time about 16 weeks, I panicked and phoned in. They said if I didn't get any more not to worry, I didn't so just left it. I think bits can come away and rebuild itself. Although I was earlier than the viability week. I know CM increases in the 3rd trimester but you'd know that being your 3rd. If your worried id ask to go in for a swab and a CTG

Thanks very much

It could be. For some women mucus plug dress for month - and it builds itself up again to protect baby.x

Thank you


I lost my mucus plug 3 times whilst pregnant, first time was at 22 weeks. If it is just a bit, it's classes as a partial plug loss and is nothing to worry about, plug take around 2 weeks to reform, just take it a bit easier, avoid heavy lifting or any thing that involves any pressure on your pelvis floor.

The only time you need to worry is if it is a significant amount, there are fresh (red) blood streaks in it, or it smells really bad.

Ok thank u
