Mucus plug/bloody show?

My last pregnancy, I was having so many checks near the end (and a few membrane sweeps) that I couldn't tell the cause of the light bleeding at the end. I think I lost my mucus plug SEVERAL times.

I 'think' I lost my mucus plug two weeks ago (I'm just over 38 now) but then this morning, I'm SURE I lost it... or part of it...

But.... it looked like snot. No bloody tinge. Does it always have a bloody tinge to it?

Please TMI me! How much? What color? And... just for the sake of 'fun'... when did baby come afterwards?

Re: Mucus plug/bloody show?

Your plug regenerates. It is possible to lose it several times or in pieces as you dilate. It doesn't mean labor is eminent, but that your body ids getting ready.

They always told me that there needs to be blood, or brown discharge with it, but my last lil guy....It was just super thick sticky snot (sorry tmi). Later that week, my water broke. I had him a month early.
Good luck to u mama! After losing my mucus plug, I always had my kids within a week.

I did not have blood in my mucus plug with DS1 or DS2. With this one there was a little blood due to a cervical check. I have been losing it piece by piece for days and there was only blood in it twice in an hour period a few days ago.

I think I lost mine a couple of weeks ago. There was no blood in it, but it was definitely a long, thick mucusy discharge when I wiped. I'm still pregnant, and waiting for him to arrive. I had my membranes stripped on Wednesday, which apparently didn't do the trick. On the plus side, I am definitely dilating. She said I was at 2 cm and 70% (!) effaced.

Good luck!

I started losing my mucus plug on a Thursday/Friday, and had mucus discharge several days in a row but with no blood. Tuesday of the next week there was blood in the mucus. I had my membranes stripped that same day and had my baby on Wednesday.
