Hello, this is kind of embarrassing to ask but I was wondering how you know the difference between a mucus plug or just the average discharge. This is my second pregnancy and I just don't remember from my first when I lost my mucus plug. I was 4 weeks early with my son and didn't know I was in labor , so I am very paranoid this time around. I am 34 weeks and have been have alot of discharge in the past couple days. I know I am going to go early this time as well, so I am concerned that maybe it already passed out of me and labor is right around the corner. Can anyone explain the difference?
