Mucus Plug? Bloody Show?

Marsha - posted on 08/05/2011 ( 2 moms have responded )




I am 36 weeks along and I just started seeing some discharge that was a little bit brown in color. Could this be the beginning of losing my mucus plug? How long typically after you lose the mucus plug is it before baby comes? I know there is no set date but just wondering what your experiences are...

I have been losing mine for the last two weeks and today is my due date and still no sign of labor =( So I agree with Melissa I think it's just one of those things that happens toward the end.

The mucus plug is mucus that might be tinged brown. If it is just brown discharge it is likely old blood. If you recently had a pelvic exam don't worry about it but if not you should tell your doc.
As for the mucus plug I am on my 4th pregnancy and already lost mine so far I really haven't noticed a corralation between when it goes and when labor starts. I think it is just another of those things that happens at the end and therefore is automatically close to labor. :)
