TMI WARNING! could someone please explain the appearence of the mucus plug? over the last 2 days iv had extra discharge that is somewhere between clear and a off-white in colour , with a thick sticky consistency but no globs, no blood but i have noticed a pinky-red-brown stain to my underwear from a much thinner liquid at the end of the day. there is also a slight odor (according to hubby) Thank you for any advice you can impart
That sounds like fairly normal discharge. Our bodies do so strange things. If it were your mucus plug it would have some red color to it. And I have always found when I lose my plug I have no doubt in my mind due to the size and color. For me i have always ran to the bathroom to check cause I felt it come out. I have heard it can come out in bits and pieces slowly over a day or two but again the color would not be clear.
If the whole thing comes out at once, I've lost it all at once with my first and in pieces with my second. If it comes out all at once its the size of a gumball and looks like snot. If you loose it in pieces it can regenerate, not sure if it regenerates if you loose the whole thing though.
I dont know what it is supposed to look like for sure as Im a first time mom.. However, I have been having an increase in regular discharge like I got at the beginning of the pregnancy. Might just be a end of pregnancy sign.
As beach mum said- if there is a fishy/musty odor it very well could be bv (bacterial vaginosis). This is very common in pregnancy. I've had problems with it even when not pregnant. Dr's will give you medicine, but a lot of women say it comes right back. I would talk to your dr.
There are home remedies if you google them.
