mine came out slowly. most of it was small dark brownish pieces, but the much larger bits did not have blood and did resemble snot... lol. not sure about the white flakes? maybe just residue? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

white flakes could be vernix. There were white flakes in my amniotic fluid that were vernix - I see no reason why there wouldn't be some in the plug. And, yes, mine looked like snot, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I just got on to ask the same question, glad you beat me too it!<br><br>
I've been having the same thing since yesterday, it looks like snot, no blood or white flakes though. I'm hoping I've dilated a little, guess I'll know when I go to the docs in the morning!

Mine was very snotty. Only a little blood in the beginning, but later on there was much more.

I see you're going to the doctor anyway today--if it's this afternoon you might call and see if they want to see you sooner if the "white flakes" continue. The mucus plug is like snot basically--like bloody snot if you're having "bloody show" also. But white flakes sounds like vernix which should be in your amniotic fluid but NOT in your mucous plug. Any fluid leakage, etc.? A high leak in the bag of waters can "seal itself" (the baby can cover it, that is)...<br><br>
Although your white flakes might be my snot, KWIM ? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>

Mine seemed to be preceded by a couple big white/clear mucusy blobs and then turned into a yellow snot with blood in it...best to you!

How did your doctors appointment go? Mine couldn't strip my membranes because my cervix still needs to soften more, so he told me to go home and have sex everyday, he even offered to write a note telling my boyfriend this(like he needs convincing!). So hopefully something will happen by next week!!

Hopefully that will work! If I asked my boyfriend to do that he might throw up<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> Hes pretty grossed out by most things having to do with birth!
