  • I agree that it sounds like the mucus plug...that ickiness happened with me too, towards the end. Ask your doc to make sure!

  • Sounds like the mucous plug. That happened to me but I was a couple of weeks farther than you when it happened to me. I had the awful cramping and that discharge too. I thought I was going into labor but I wasn't and ended up being induced later on. If you're concerned maybe a call to your doctor would be in order.

  • I'm about 30 weeks and I've never experienced that with this pregnancy or with my daughter...I think I would probably talk to the Dr about it or at the very least call the advice nurse. Good luck mama

  • My ob said the discharge was normal (I had it) but I didn't have cramping. Wound up being induced at 39 weeks due to pre-eclampsia. That sucked.
