  • Its similar to a clump of snot and can be tinged pink or brown. It does not gush...I noticed it when I wiped after using the bathroom.

  • It can come out in little pieces, or in one big chunk. I can be clear, white, pink, brown, red, all kinds of colors.

  • It does look like snot like the PP's said and it can come out all as one big lump or in little bits. If it does come out, that means you are starting to dialate. It's not at all dangerous that you've lost it and labor could still be weeks away. It will keep renewing itself until then and you'll continue to have a mucusy discharge, so wear a panty liner.

    That sounds more like your water broke than a mucus plug. Call your provider, there is a very simple litmus test they can do to see if your water just broke.
