  • Like bloody snot, lol. Disgusting, I know. It can happen weeks before you go into active labor or days or hours....BUT it is a sign your body is preparing for labor. So hooray for that!

  • I had something similar a few days a ago. Its like a snot discharge...mine came out a lot at once like a chunk...yuk

    and i called the hospital, i thought something was wrong with me, but they said it was probably my mucus plug.

  • It can be brownish(old blood tinged), clear, or sometimes it comes out gradually and just looks like increased discharge and you don't even know it's gone. It happens the last few weeks of pregnancy.
