I have been having increased "discharge" for a WHILE now, but for the most part it has been very watery and clear. But since the "false labor" incident I posted about a couple days ago,

I started losing bits and pieces of mine two weeks before Peter was born. A friend described it, and I agreed with her, as looking like you blew your nose in February, only in your underwear. Gross, but accurate. LOL

I never noticed any blood in mine, and just had pink-tinged amniotic fluid that the nurse called me bloody show.

normal for where you are in PG. Don't pin your hopes on it. Sorry! I only noticed the bloody show/ mucous plug with this last baby. With the others I just had what you are describing off & on for the last several weeks. It means that your body is preparing, but you knew that. With this baby all day the day before my water broke (in the middle of the night) I was crampy, uncomfortable

Adrienne, I only lost my mucus plug a few hours before my water broke... actually it started to "leak" (for lack of a better term), a few hours before breaking waters, and continued for a few hours afterwards. It only had traces of blood at the very end, and only traces. In any case, it looked as a huge amount of EW CM or as a pp said, it looks like blowing your nose. It could be some of the MP, or not.

Also, what you describe reminds me of the excessive CM I had during the last months of pregnancy, my OB told me it was quite normal. But be sure to ask for the strept B check up., just in case.

I'm glad you're aware of the danger of expecting your little guy to arrive early, lol. It's a hard road to go down, thinking your baby could arrive any minute for a month or more!

Anyway, I started losing chunks of the mucuous plug a couple of weeks before my induction. It sounds like that might be happening to you? Obviously, it had nothing to do with labor in my case, haha...

Well, with my first son, I lost the mucus plug (with bloody show) almost 48 hours before the baby was delivered.
