  • It's normal. All kinds of goo come out during pregnancy. Seems like your whole body is oozing something haha. I wouldn't worry about it. Just be happy you've only got a couple weeks left of it!

  • normal - when you are preggo, there's a lot of discharge. i went through the same thing when I was about as far along as you. my husband and i even googled pics of 'mucus plug' because we thought that's what it was. but, like i said, it's all normal.

  • You can lose your plug over the course of several days or a week. Discharge is just a normal part of pregnancy. If it is your plug, then you might be having some bloody show with it.

  • Probably normal, but mention it to your doc, they may want to test for BV or other things you could get while pregnant. Good luck!

  • It took me almost a whole week to lose my plug, I didn't know what to think at the time but my doctor said it was normal and not to worry about it.

  • Well, if it's not an infection. Then it sounds fine. You're almost there, just 4 more weeks to go! YAY, congrats!

  • Usually close to the end of my pregnancies within a week I would start losing a lot of mucus. No color but it's alot with no smell. It's so annoying cause it almost makes you feel like you peed on yourslef like a big glob or something. That ususally happened to me before I delivered.
