  • Maybe when I lost mine in the past it had a slight hint of blood in it though. You can call your doc and they will have you come in and get checked out

  • It's usually a white snotty substance...it's normal, nothing to worry about, unless you are feeling contractions.

  • When I asked my Dr. when preg. what I should do if I expelled the mucus plug, he told me it isn't really cause for action in and of itself. That it could indicate labor is close, but it wasn't a reason to go in without any other symptom. I don't think my mucus plug was pink or brown; just like they said--like a thick wad of snot! Hey, we've all been thru this stuff, and when you want to know, there is no such thing as t.m.i.
