I'm due Monday next week, expecting my first bub. I've noticed throughout the day that I've been getting a very thick yellowy cream discharge coming out in blobs. Could it be "the show", or just another pregnancy related discharge? please help!

Yup. Probably your mucous plug. When I lost mine, I didn't realize what what happening - but my water broke several hours later. Could be a few hours or a few days left though, but certainly a sign that labor is on its way. Good luck!

Unfortunately, not yet. I still am getting pieces of thick discharge, my lower back is reallllllly sore and my stomach is still getting a tightening feeling, but no contractions as such. Disappointed! My obstetrician has prescribed me with some sleeping tablets because I'm so uncomfortable now I just don't sleep! She's given me an appointment on Monday which is my actual due date, but she's hopeful I won't see her! Been doing alot of walking and moving around hoping that those movements will help things along. We'll see how it goes!

yes! i lost mine for nearly three and a half weeks. when i was actually in labor and they broke my water, i finally lost the rest of it and it was kind of a brown color...but yes. i lost mine for what seemed like forever and it was hard for me to find a straight answer about it on the net and my doctor didnt really tell me anything because hes german..i live in germany. so yes, expect this until u deliver! Mine never had any blood in it at all!

Thanks for the replies. I'm finding now (a few hours later) that my stomach has started to get quite a tight feeling, a little bit painful! It comes and goes but has been a constant over the last couple of hours. Trying not to get my hopes up in thinking she might actually be coming!

Usually your mucous plug is blood tinged, but it could still be that. I lost mine 3 weeks before my water broke and was 3 cm dialated for that time. Unfortunately, you just have to wait and it's so hard! Good luck!
