    Default Mucous plug? (Warning - TMI!)

    Hi Ladies! I'm 36w+5d and noticed this mucuosy discharge on my panty liner this morning, about three hours after I got up. Does this look like it might be my mucous plug/bloody show?

    I'm having BH contractions, but only figured out what they were about a week ago (completely painless, though duration longer than expected). I don't think I've had any other symptoms.

    Thanks for everyone's replies! I had an OB appointment yesterday, and bubs less engaged than the week before and the doctor doesn't think that it was my mucous plug. So no rushing off to the hospital for me just yet!

    Did the doc say what it is? Im getting similar discharge to you, only mine is just like your lighter coloured stuff.. No darkness or blood... and im only 30 weeks :/

    I figure it is jst lovely hormone related mucous secretions, i got it with my first two pregnancies, but dont remember getting this much this early?

    If anyone's interested.....
    I'm not sure if that was my mucous plug, but at 38w+1 (20/4/12), my waters broke at 8pm, had a bloody show at 3am the following day and long story short, DS was born at 5pm at 38w+2 (12 days after that discharge).

    Thanks for everyone's feedback.
