Is This It?
This is another sign that your body is preparing for labor. Also look for the bloody show: a small amount of blood that appears as the cervix stretches and dilates. (If you see a large amount of blood, contact your caregiver immediately.) You may also pass your mucous plug. When this happens, it does not necessarily mean that you will be in labor immediately -- it could be days before that happens. Here's how six different moms described losing their mucus plug:
Vreebug: I have been having this clear mucousy, jelly like stuff coming out of me this morning. It's coming out in little tiny globs. I thought the plug was supposed to be yellow tinged and snotty looking. I never did see my plug with my other two, so I have no idea. Anyone?
leeshalynn: I've never had my plug be yellowish at all. It's always been clear or cloudy white.
OAndrea: Mine was whiteish with dried blood stains. And it is still coming out.
cheriesrealm: Mine was/is a yellowish hue with light brown/tan streaks and some parts blood tinged. It started coming out yesterday early afternoon and I was getting some every time I wiped -- but today, not a lot has come out.
livvah: Mine was cloudy, with no blood at all.
Lauren23: Mine was like clear, thick jello globs with streaks of red and brown thoughout it. I lost a lot of it one morning, some more that afternoon, and my water broke that night.
