<p>My plugs were the most glorious, unmistakable chunks and handfuls of vicious, thick, gooey snot. A whole different animal than normally increased late pregnancy vaginal secretions. </p>

<p>I am awaiting my second baby right now and haven't lost my plug, but it came out in one shot with my daughter 5 years ago.  Imagine a quarter cup of thick, blood-tinged mucus.  Kinda impressive in its way! </p>

<p>the plug earlier on can regenerate, it's normal to have mucousy days.  The pink or red could be irritation from anything, the cervix is SO sensitive.  I've had days of what looks like LOTS of EWCM...seems normal to me.</p>

<p>Mine was super, super, super sticky and thick.  Definitely not discharge.  I agree, it could be your cervix.</p>

<p>Have you had intercourse in the last day or so before the blood tinged mucous?  The cervix is so sensitive, any little bump to it can cause some bleeding.  I didn't see my mucous plug in my first pregnancy because I was induced before my body was ready, but the second time around my water broke at home.  Once I got to the hospital they wanted my panty liner to confirm if it was amniotic fluid (I was slightly offended they thought I was peeing on myself every time I had a contraction, but whatever) and when I took my panty liner off the mucous plug was stuck to it.  I was like "WHOA!"  I screamed at my husband, "DON"T LOOK!"  LOL!  It was crazy looking.  It was a huge thick chunk, definitely unmistakable.</p>
