    Default What does the mucas plug look like?

    Hi,
    I will be 38wks preggers on Monday and have been having bad pains and cramps in my groin area for the last 4 nights. About 1/2 an hour ago when I went to the toilet and wiped I had creamy/white stringy discharge. When I seen the doc on wednesday they said bubs would arrive any day as he is ready.
    Could it be my mucas plug?

    When my mucus plug came away it was like the usual vaginal discharge but tinged with a bit of blood so had pinkish/blood streaks in it. The discharge was clear/white with pink streaks.

    If I had to put money on it I would definitely say that was your plug Taddy.

    I lost mine one week before labour started.
