TMI WARNING!!!! mucus plug?
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 :)

Re: TMI WARNING!!!! mucus plug?
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.

I haven't ever lost mine so I'm not positive but I do think it sounds similar to the d/c I've been having

You may have an infection, the odor comment leads me to think that, but I don't know. My mp never had an odor I don't think.

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.

It doesn't look anything like regular discharge to me. I don't think you'd mistake it if you saw it. Mine was a bit bloody too.

When I lost my mucus plug with Nate, it looked like (and sorry for being graphic and TMI) a huge wad of snot with a big green booger. Sorry for the graphic detail there lol

Re: TMI WARNING!!!! mucus plug?
I lost it with my son about an hour after my water broke. It was sooo gross. It looked like the biggest piece of snot I've ever seen with little streaks of blood in it. Sorry tmi!

I never saw it with my daughter

Re: TMI WARNING!!!! mucus plug?
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.

Re: TMI WARNING!!!! mucus plug?
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.
