  • Call a Dr to be safe, as you talked about clear yellow mucous.. is it just mucous ( being probably your plug) or is it watery ? either way labour may still be a while away, but you should also speak to your dr. if you lost your plug, there is not really much protection from bacteria now. goodluck

  • It's probably best to talk to your Doctor just to be on the safe side.

  • that mucuous is probably your plug, like others are saying. when i lost my plug with my first, it was like a glob of jello (not to sound gross). but if you have a bloody show, you need to call the DR cuz I lost my plug 2 hours before my water broke, and then I had my bloody show at the hospital a few hours before delivering.

  • Sounds like your plug. I lost mine weeks ago, and still no baby for me.

  • Definitely sounds like your plug. You may be hours away from labor or you may be days or even weeks. My doc told me if I had any signs of labor after 36 weeks they most likely wouldn't stop the progress. But that was MY doc - your's could be different. I lost my plug at 5am with my first and had a baby by 8:00 that night - so it varies. Hope all goes well with you and your new baby!! Good luck!!!!
