  • i didnt have brown stuff by itself but i did have brown stuff with some mucousy pieces of my plug...it prob just old blood from dilating...capillaries in your cervix break when you dilate and thats what causes 'bloody show'

  • You might mention that to your doc/midwife. Could be old blood from something. When your cervix dilates, you can have some spotting, but in my experience, it's usually pink to red (bloody show). Have you been checked lately?
