  • yep sounds like mucus plug which could take a few days or just minutes to completely lose. when it is completely gone labor usually begins within 24 to 48 hours. Relax and get last minute things done to get ready to meet your little one. Good luck

  • Well I have been having this discharge for like a week and a half now, shouldn't it be gone by now?

  • It could be an infection. I would get it checked out. Usually your mucus plug is snot like with a tinge of blood or snot like and dark like old blood. Not to say it isn't your mucus plug, but since you said you have had this discharge for so long I would get it checked out. Good luck to you!! Baby will be here very soon :)
