  • The only way I could think to describe it is, it's like a reall runny nose consistancy but with a little blood at first. kind of like you're going to start a period. That's how mine were anyway. And I always started about two weeks before my due date. There was always like little blobs that would come out when I used the bathroom. Kind of gross, but we all get it. Hope that helps.

  • I didn't lose mine until I had been in labor for about 20 hrs but it came out a little bit everytime I went to the bathroom with a bit of blood in it.

  • Yes, it could be your mucus plug. Mine came out slowly with no blood. Just like a really runny nose every time I wiped. I also know that you can get EXTRA discharge during your pregnacy. I would think that it's a little early for your mucus plug...I read somewhere that after losing the plug, delivery is within 2 weeks...but don't quote me on that!

  • Well if my doctor is right about my due date than i thought it might be to early but my ultra sound and meausrements say i am 38 weeks and 3 days, idk though I guess i should stick with what the doctor sayss is my due date not the ultra sound, is it normal to meause 4 cm bigger?

  • The way mine looked was like a big pink stained loogie not to be gross. and i lost parts of mine for about a week before the big part of it came out then i went into labor 2 hours later. so it might be time. i was 2 days past my due date but if your body is ready you can always go early. i would call you dr or midwife and ask just to be sure and if you are having contractions i would go to L&D i had contractions 2 hrs after my plug came out but everyone is different. Good luck and congrats!

  • if the ultra sound measurements say you are so far along that is what i would go by. that's what my midwife went by after i had my ultrasound and they were right on both times. so you could be due in a week or too maybe sooner.

  • if you have any Q's ask me. i'm not an expert but i went to the same place during both my pregnancies and the both prediction were only 2 days so i would really go with what the ultrasound said.

  • i lost all mine at once and it was yellowish and some women can lose it at different times. see first my water broke and then my mucus plug came out.
