bloody show / mucus plug

I had my membranes stripped Thursday and starting Friday night I have had ridiculous amounts of thick, sometimes bloody mucus coming out. Every other time I use the bathroom there is another huge glob. Yuck. Did anyone have this persist over days? When I got checked yesterday the midwife said it was 'juicy ' down there because I'm open but eww I've not had this before.

I haven't had my membranes stripped, so I don't know if that's a usual side effect. But, I know people who lost their plug over time like that instead of in one, big glob. I think it's a great sign!!! Maybe tonight!

Juicy? What a description LOL. I noticed that the 3 days before my water broke that I was seeing bigger chunks of mucous in the toilet so maybe it is a promising sign.

I had huge globs one time. Baby came within 24 hours. It definately means that things are opening up. I wouldn't be surprised if labor started soon.
