In brief: About to deliver
A pregnant woman's mucus plug is expelled just prior to delivery.
It is present to help block bacteria from entering the uterus during pregnancy. Sometimes, loss of a mucus plug can be associated with some bloody discharge. If you are the one who is pregnant, you may want to let your OB know. Good luck!
