  • i can almost promise you that its not your mucus plug that is long gone. things are just wierd after having a baby things take a while to get back to normal but i would call the doc and see if they might want you to come in to make sure there is no infection. but it simply could be just normal discharge tinged with blood.

  • That sounds like what I experienced. I think that's just normal after giving birth.

  • I always had a lot of bright red blood, then less red, then clearish pink, then brownish, then just clear discharge for a while.
