  • It could be your mucus plug. Mine came out in "chunks" over a couple of days. It was clear but it can have some pink, red or even brown "show" mixed in it.

    When there is shown it CAN that labor is near but it's not a guarentee. God Bless.

  • That sounds more like the blood from spotting mixed with discharge. Your mucus plug will look like snot, even if it comes out in small chunks. It CAN be brown, so it is possible this is your plug. It can also be yellow, pink, white, clear... Mine was bright yellow, no blood. It's not much of an indication of when you'll go into labor, but hopefully, it'll happen for you soon! Good luck!
