  • I think it's ok. Gross, but ok...but maybe ask your doc about it.

  • does sound like the mucous plug. I would wait to see if there are any cramps and/or blood that accompany it. If so, go to the ER and get checked. I know it's early, but babies can be born at this time. the good news is, they have a good chance of surviving so don't worry.

  • If your mucus is green you should mention it to your doctor. You could have an infection. The mucus should be clear or white... green or very yellow can be a sign of infection.

  • Like Serafyna said, green or brown can be a sign of infection. I would definitely call the doc. I hope everything turns out okay! =)
