  • Could be your mucus plug working its way out. Call your doctor if you have any more bleeding

  • Sounds like your mucus plug. Definitely means your body is preparing for the upcoming laboring process. Good luck! Could be hours, days, or weeks.... But it is a good sign of progress!

  • It is normal. The white stringy stuff is how your vaginal glands react to the pregnancy hormones. The blood could be a number of things. Do not automatically assume that it was your mucus plug (that usually looks like a BIG nasty loogie...) If you has sex recently, you could have torn a little. Could also just be a little bloody show. I had bloody show my entire pregnancy with my first (some say that they are periods). I wouldn't freak out. If it was bright blood, then it is probably a tear. If it is darker, probably just bloody show. If it was a large amount, or it continues, then call your OBGYN.
