  • It looks like a huge wad of snot, about the size of two large cotton balls. It can be a variety of colors, including brown, green, yellow, or red, and all of those are normal (no indication of anything wrong). You may even feel it come out, like a big period clot. I felt mine. It can also come out in pieces. It will look different than your discharge. Also, be aware it's not indicative of when labor will come. =)

  • With my last two babies i had mine come out over a couple days. So it may not be all at once. But everytime i would wipe after i used the bathroom i would have what looked like extra dishcharge only slimy and then the last day i had a light brownish color blood with it. Also if your mucus plug come out and you do not go into labor within the next few days it can start to reform itself.
