When I think back to my first DD, I had no mucus loss at all until the day before I had her, then I lost one glob that was tinged pink. With DD2 my water broke before any mucus/bloody anything happened and I was active labor and lost a crud load of brownish red mucus during labor.
This time I have been losing big chunks of mucus plug the last few days but without blood. Last exam I had the VERY slighest brown spotting. This time, after the big chunk of pinkish mucus, I am now having some pretty decent spotting/bleeding but it's all brownish.
Who knows. Clinging to hope that baby may be ready this week, but cautiously clinging. If not, STAY PUT BABY!
