8 months pregnant and had some gnarly discharge....WAY TMI. Do not read if you're going to get grossed out. Thanks! adult content

I'm 8 months along and I just used the restroom and felt like I was leaking something! Immediately I freaked and thought my water broke or something, I reached down to wipe and I had a string of discharge coming out of me and I swear it had to have been a good 8 inches long.

I'm not only disgusted but freaked out! It wasn't clear or white...it was almost a grayish color and it had the consistency of snot as it was stretchy.

Any ideas?

  • Mucous plug, to be on the safe side, call your doctor to make sure your water isn't leaking.

  • Should I already be losing my mucous plug? I still have quite a few weeks to go.

  • You can lose your plug a few weeks early. It's really not a major deal. Gross, but not a big deal :)

    It indicates that you're likely dilating a little bit. As mentioned above, go ahead and just let your doctor know. They'll want to chart it.

  • Mucus plug. You can be losing bits and pieces through the last trimester. Call your doctor if you think your water broke though.
