  • Sounds like your plug to me. You can read my birth story. It tells when i lost my plug and when labor started.

    At first I just had some funky discharge. I thought I was getting a yeast infection. Later that day it progressed into stringy snot looking stuff.

  • Thats what my plug looked like, clear, thick and snotty looking but no blood. I went into labor 2 days later. Good luck and congrats!

  • my plug didn't have blood in it. it was kind of yellowy/snotty. :) i went into labor 3-4 days later but it's hard to say when it will happen based on losing the mucus plug. but you are getting closer!

  • I lost mine 2 weeks before delivery, it had no blood either.... it was white and clumpy and came out in small pieces.
