I found this info for you....Some women describe the mucous plug as looking more like the mucous in your nose. It may look like a thick glob of stringy mucous, thicker than what you would see with normal vaginal secretions. If you are close to going into labor you may see pink, brown, or red blood around the edges of the mucous plug. This is called the “bloody show”.When do you lose your mucous plug? Some women will lose their mucous plug or part of their mucous plug weeks before they go into labor.Losing your mucous plug does not always mean labor will begin shortly. Keep in mind that even if a woman has begun to dilate, it may be weeks before she actually goes into labor. As your body prepares for labor your cervix will begin to dilate and thin. As your cervix opens up, your mucous plug may fall out. Losing your mucous plug is a good sign that labor is on its way. Though, it could be days or even weeks after you lose your mucous plug before labor actually starts. Many women do not lose their mucous plug at one time; instead, they lose it more gradually. They may notice an increase in vaginal secretions weeks before they go into labor.The website said if you are before 36 weeks and you think you've lost your mucous plug to call your doctor immediately as this plug helps keep out the bacteria. Once you do loose your mucous plug, no matter how many weeks you are, you can no longer take a bath because you can allow bacteria to get in with the baby.
