  • I have called my Dr office on this one because mine is yellow and sticky. They say it can be yellow or clear,pink, gooey, and with or without a little blood. Everyone is different and i think the blood from what I've been told is more towards the end if it happens, it may or may not. (31 weeks is early, I'd def call Dr.) You can ask your doctor or one of the nurses on phone for sure, but I'm willing to bet it's your mucus plug.

  • While it could have been, it was most likely regular discharge. Towards the end of pregnancy, most women get increased discharge that looks exactly like what you described. I always double check everything with my Dr., so you should, but I highly doubt it was the mucous plug.
