  • My mucus plug (sorry this will be graphic) was dark yellow and VERY think, almost like a fruit snack in consistency. It had blood streaked through it and I saw this type of mucus for about 4-5 days in a row. If it's like that, then yes, call your doctor. The doc may not be worried if no other signs of labor are present, but mucus with blood in is definitely merits a phone call every time.

  • Just one more thing... at 33 weeks, any spotting of blood or mucus plug type discharge merits a concerned phone call. If you do deliver in the next week or so, your baby will probably be fine, but will have to stay in the neo-natal intensive care unit for a while. My niece was born at 34 weeks and stayed for 11 days. That was an extremely short amount of time for a baby born that early. Good luck!
