  • it could be just discharge. once you get near your third trimester, your discharge will increase

  • Yeah the mucous plug usually has some kind of bloody or blood-tinged pinkish look to it. That's why it is also known as the "bloody show". Probably just discharge, since discharge can be thick, mucous-like, etc.

    If it was substantial and you felt uncomfortable with it, I'd ask your doc.
