2 Bumps


I am 38 weeks with my second pregnancy. about an hour ago I went to the bathroom, wiped and there was some brown discharge. It looks like when you start or ending your period and the blood gets that brown color. There was a good amount. Could this be bloody show? I never had that with my first child. Also, I'm not sure but I think I may have a yeast infection. Up by my "clit" is very tender, sore, and kind of itchy. I bought some Vagisil (after talking to doc) and it seems to have helped the pain. Could the bleeding be from that? I'm having contractions too. Gonna go lay down, drink a glass of water and see what happens in an hour.

  • It very well could be your mucus plug. Just do what you are going, wait the hour and see, if the contractions go away, not real labor. :)

  • sounds like your mucus plug! Both of my pregnancies, I had the brownish discharge towards the end of my pregnancy. I was told that if it's bright red blood, then you need to be seen asap!

  • I agree with everyone else. It could be your mucous plug and labor is just around the corner.
