  • It's really, really slippery. Without grossing you out, it does resemble a runny nose. If you'd been checking your vag. discharge ttc, it's like the middle when you're ovulating, but on overkill. When you wipe, you'll know.

    Congrats! You're almost there!

  • It depends. If it comes out all at once, it will look like a great big huge glob of thick snot, possibly with some pink or brown tinge, but mostly yellowish-white. If it comes out in pieces, it will look like normal vaginal discharge, again possibly with some pink or brown streaks, but a lot more of it, about 2-3 times as much as you've ever noticed on your most discharge-y of days.

  • Mine was white, slimey, thick looking goo that had a bit of blood in it.
