Okay, so I know that this doesn't necessarily mean anything but I just wanted to share with someone who wasn't creeped out when I told them (ie. DH who actually gagged when I told him what it was). But I have had some thick mucus-y type of discharge off and on the past week or so (which is completely noraml for me, I did the sme thing last time for the last 2 months of my pregnancy) but this was a completely different thing- definitely thinking it was my mucus plug. Yay- that means we're moving closer!!
I didn't lose a plug either of my previous pgs and based on the fact that I was already dialated when checked at 36 and 37 weeks I don't think I had a plug to lose! My cervix is already mushy and I'm a little dialated (but I don't know how much since I'm not experienced in checking pg cervixes
I think everyone's mucous plug looks different. With ds, mine looked like brownish-red (kind of the color of old blood) tinted, soft-set jello. Yummy, huh? It didn't start coming out until I was about 3-4cm dilated. It kind of fell out in clumps every time I would pee for a few hours. Ok, sorry if that was TMI.
