  • Pretty sure it's your mucus plug... mine looked like that too. Not jelly like just a bunch of brown blood. It pretty much lasted all day like that. I called my OB she agreed that it was just my mucus plug.

  • Also loosing your mucus plug can be an early sign of labor so I would watch for that seeing as you said that you were having a little pain and you are 40 weeks. Just watch out. On the other hand it could still be a few more days.

  • First of all Bless you honey!!! I would be going out of my mind if I were you!!! Have you had an exam lately? It could be discharge from having your cervix checked or from sex. My plug was clear and a little yellow like my reg discharge, so I guess it just depends on the body. It could be but I would just give it time and see how I felt and if I started feeling labory I would call my doc or go to the hospital esp. since you are 40 weeks! I am 38 and SOO ready to have it!!! I was 2 weeks early with my first so if I get to 40 weeks I'll go be fed up.
