    Default Mucous plug lost. What now

    TMI warning.

    Ok so I lost my plug today, I wanted to know if it is normal for further discharge afterwards.

    I'm wearing a liner and its just like a 10cent piece size of brown discharge each time I pee. Is this related to it?

    Or should I call the docs as it could be waters leaking with brown in it??

    Having very very mild cramping/Bh/contractions I am not sure.

    Oh and my due date is.. today!

    sounds like labour is not far away... I lost my plug the day before I went into full labour.. just time your contractions and see what happens...but if the brown continues I would ring the hospital and let them know and see what they say. Best of luck..

    Sounds like labour to me
    When my waters broke they continued leaking until bubs was born and it is pinky coloured liquid. What you've described sounds like your waters might be trickling a little for now, before the big gush.
    Good luck, how exciting!

    Still call the labor ward and describe what is coming out on your pad, they'll want to know if your waters have broken and the color.

    If he has pooed and your waters have broken it could lead to an infection and can be harmul for bubs- the nurses will always ask what colour your water/discharge is for that exact reason; meconium (baby's first poo) occuring before birth can cause very serious probs (bacteria and baby inhaling it etc) so best call and tell them straight away.
    Having said that it is likely not that at all so don't concern yourself, just let the birth suite know.

    I think it is probably the rest of your plug coming away a and the brown is old blood like at the end of AF. Mine came away like that for a few hours every time I went the toilet (definitely wasn't waters) and DS was born early the next morning. Good Luck!!!

    That is exactly what happened to me and I called the ward and they said it was the early stages of labour. Call the ward and tell them and they will tell you what you should do next.

    How exciting for you! Congratulations!

    If the discharge is like a blob I'd say its more of Ur plug.

    My waters broke with mecconium in it and it was greeny brown but liquid, not blobs.

    My dd3 was born an hour after I lost my plug, half an hour after waters breaking and first contraction.

    Good luck!

    Me + he = dd1 (July 07), dd2 (July 10), dd3 (August 13), dd4 (due may 14)

    Call and describe it, they might just get you to come in and test to see if it is waters.
    if it is your waters it would be liquid, not thick like a discharge or anything....but never feel like a pain calling. It's their job
