  • IT is normal. That happened to me, too. Your cervix is getting ready, as well as the rest of your body. When things loosen up, then you will release this type of discharge. It is basically the same thing as your mucus plug. Try to get some rest, things may start to happen quickly!

  • Discharge...it won't stop just because your mucus plug is gone, you'll be oozing stuff for quite awhile! Enjoy! ;)

  • Ooze away mama...That baby is on its way! No telling how quickly they may come now so get lots of rest, make sure your bag is packed and your game plan is in place...GOOD LUCK!

  • After the mucas plug is out it is usually 10 to 14 days the baby will be on it's way.

  • i went into labor about 2-3 days after i lost my plug. im not going to disagree that it could be up to 14 days but i am gonna disagree that its as soon as 10..it's usually as soon as 48 hrs up to 2 or 3 weeks
