    How can you tell the difference? I have noticed a change in my discharge in the past few days (TMI :oops: ) from clear to yellowy/stickier and watery round the edges. I know some people lose their plug slowley and some in one go so I'm wondering how you make the distinction between normal discharge and your plug?

    Yeah, I asked that same question yesterday and as long as it isn't foul smelling etc, it's fine.
