mucous plug?

hello...I'm about 37 weeks pregnant....about 2 weeks away from due date. I noticed today that I had some blood on my panties....this never happened before. It doesn't have any thick white discharge or anything like that. Can this be my mucous plug coming out?

  • Have you had sex, a pap or exercise today...those things can cause bleeding.Don't remember if you can have bloody show before the mucus plug comes out.Mine always came out before and I didn't bleed till I was in labor on the way to the hospital.I'd call Labor and Deliver and ask the nurses!

  • my nurse today was tellin me that your mucus (how ever u spell it) can look like this. it could be jus the beginnin of it... sometmes it doesnt all come out at once... but it can be blood not jus "brown snot" like someone else said... plus everyone is different so id say yeh its very likely but if u wanta knw for sure im sure ur dr could tell you=] congrats an good luck!!
