Can mucus plug regenerate during pregnancy? Is this true that women lose mucus plug bit by bit and then new mucus plug is formed?

In brief: Mucous

Certain membranes in your body form mucous.
Your cervix is one of them. Some lose it all at once. Some bit by bit. Either way is normal.

In brief: Mucus plug remains

Throghout pregnancy mucus plug blocks the opening of the cervix to prevent bacteria from entering the uterus before labour mucus plug is expelled allowing baby to pass through the cervix during the labor.
