  • You need to call your husband, and have him come home, if the doctor thinks you need to go to the ER,,don't hesitate, just go, you could have lost your mucous plug,,,,please just GO!

  • You MAY have just lost your mucous plug.

  • You should definitely go to the ER. When your doctor tells you to go, go. But aside from that, that color of discharge is NOT a normal part of pregnancy. You really need to go get checked out asap, at least for the baby's sake. It could be a sign of infection. Gray discharge is usually associated with infection, as is brown. Such infections include cervicitis (cervical inflamation) as well as bacterial vaginosis. Brown is also associated with old blood.

    HOWEVER these are NOT all of the possibilities as to what it could be. Like PP said it could have to do with your placenta. You just really do not know until you go to the ER.
