1 Bump

Mucus plug

I'm 36 weeks pregnant and yesterday I had some bloody mucus and then today lost what I believe to be my mucus plug (cream colored looking burger with a little bit of brownish blood spot in there) today I had some brownish discharge.

1: was yesterday my "bloody" show?
2: does that sound like the mucus plug?
3: what's the brown discharge? Old blood?

This is my second pregnancy but with my first my membranes were stripped and my doctor took out my mucus plug. I'm 1cm and 90% effaced.

  • Sounds like your mucous plug but it can still be a couple of weeks.

  • It sounds like. But I wouldnt worry to much. It could still be a week before you actually go into labor or longer. But still you should tell your doctor so they know whats going on and they can tell you better of what to expect.

  • Oh I know it can still be awhile. I was just wondering if that's just what it was just so I know since I wasn't sure. I'm not rushing anything:)
