christa - November 29

white thick discharge, with bloody show.

i have herd it is a light pinkish with brown, but if your mucus plug comes out all at once, it'll be a huge ball of nastyness. i am dialated and have lost my mucus plug, however i never had any of this. i have read that some womens comes out slowly little by little and you never really notice it, other than just a little thick discharge, and s_x can disruppt it too, make it come slowly, not all at once.

marg- alot of times, labor won't start for a week after you lose your mucus plug, sometimes it starts a day or two after, you never know. i would call my doctor just to inform him and let him know that it may be soon, some doctors don't won't you to go into labor before 39 weeks, it all depends on your case, so he may suggest bed rest or something. don't worry about it.

Not always it could be clear with a slight tint to it but it's not like regular discharge it's more of a gelatin texture.

Mine was brown and thick. It looked like old blood and snot. I am 38 weeks and have been having irrregular contractions for a few days.


Maria - February 10

Mines clear with a yellowish tint, started to come out on Saturday and still small amounts are coming out today (Thursday) Quite alot yesterday though!


Suzy - February 22

My doctor just told me today that I lost my mucous plug but I did not notice any blood or anything until after the internal exam. Can someone tell me how much longer they think it will be that I will go into labor? I am currently not feeling any pain other than my stomach hardening ever 4 minutes. But it doesn't hurt and I feel fine. Should I be worried??

I lost my mucous plug almost three weeks ago, but still have a week to go until my due date (and I haven't yet delivered). I started having Braxton-Hicks contractions five weeks ago and I'm 2-3 centimeters dilated. Even though I'm not in real labor yet, the contractions and dilating made my plug come out. My mucous plug came out in pieces over three days, in huge globs with brownish-red streaks. However, my sister-in-law didn't lose hers until her son was born. From all the stories I've heard and what my OB says, it's just different for everyone.

It doesnt matter the color I guess. That could be different from each one. But certainly is like gel texture, like soft silicone. I lost mine four days ago and still continue feeling irregular Braxton Hicks but no regular labor contractions.
