  • LOL, I had the same thing! At some point I think (now) that it was part of my mucous plug, but I have no idea. It's probably nothing to concern yourself with, but mention it to your doctor just in case it's one of those weird things that only they seem to know about. Good luck! :)

  • no, i don't think it's the plug. Unfortunately, it's just a little gross.

  • probably is your mucus plug. You can lose and "reform" your mucus plug many times durring it's not a sign of imminent labor :)

    Congrats on your baby to be!

  • Amazingly enough it was my doctor that noticed the amount of mucous... she didn't say much more about it but i was already pissed that she was sending me home after a false water break so i didn't think about asking if that was bad...

  • I think it's your sister did this for almost a week, and her dr's told her it was her plug...
