mucus plug? I am confused!!

ok for the past three days I have had ALOT of snotty looking discharge.. but only when I wipe.. Its yellowie and Slimey LOL sorry tmi!!
is this my mucus plug? how much do you lose? is it normal NOT to have any blood with it?
I am 36w 4d and sat at L&D I was 1 and 50% effaced
another thing is can you continue to lose it for this long?
Oh and If you want to bash me go ahead I just got off the phone with my dr and I forgot to ask and they are really super busy!

  • i dont thin that that is your mucus plug...i think that is just the regular pregnancy discharge!

  • You will be amazed at all the funky stuff that comes out of that area while you are pregnant. Losing your mucous plug is not an indication of labor and it can regenerate so I wouldn't be overly concerned if it was or not.
