A 20-year-old female asked:
Is it normal for the mucus plug to be dark red, about two or three inches long, and thick?

Mucus plug: The mucus plug for lack of a more elegant visual looks like a ball of snot with some blood mixed in with it. A woman can lose the plug before onset of labor or even during labor.
