What does the mucus plug look like? its my first pregnancy and i think i just lost mine...(sorry gross tmi)

im 21weeks, i had some odd cramping and especially in my lower back the past few days. i thought it might of been braxton hicks. i just got home and went to the bathroom. i looked at my panties and it was like a ting of blood so i wiped and i glob of creamy white and crlear mucusy discharge tinged with a lil dark blood was on it. ive never had any discharge like this. is this normal?

  • gross... but honest - a giant loogie with some blood streaks in it.

  • That does sound like what it was. I would call your doctor and let them know. I lost mine earlier than they would like...but nowhere near that early. I was at 32 or 33 weeks and I'm 41 weeks now, so they might not be too concerned...but worth a phone call.

  • This will be gross but google it if you are unsure...there are images on there. But it does sound like the mucus plug to me.

  • Yes, every thing weird that happens in pregnancy is weird....
    Check with your doctor, you will feel better once you hear from the doc.
