I'm 7 days late and I am now having a watery brown fluid coming out I have already lost my mucus plug... Could the baby have pooped inside of me?
Confusing question?: Are you pregnant already? If so then you should not be having periods at all. The mucous plug is expelled a few ays or weeks before labor. If you are 7 days late and are not sure if you are pregnant then take a test. It would be way to early for a baby to be big enough to have a bowel movement and pass meconium. Even when meconium is present it is not detectable unless your water is broken. ...Read more

Early labor signal?: Old blood appears brownish. Did your OB examine you recently? Did you have intercourse? Is it still there, more profuse, reddish? Are you having contractions, pressure or pain in the pelvis? These are some questions you will be asked by your OB or his associate. Discharge can herald labor. A third trimester baby can have risks if born before term. So most obs would want to evaluate or speak to you. ...Read more

Yes: The mucus plug is made up of thick cervical mucus that your body forms as soon as you're pregnant. The mucus protects and prevents anything from traveling up the cervix. 72 hours before labor, your cvx begins to change and the mucus loosens and mixes w/ blood from cervical change until it falls out as a "plug." Your cvx will continue to make mucus and you may have more discharge afterwards. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: A larger amount of cervical mucus that is sometimes thicker and may be blood-tinged MAY be noticed by patients in their underwear, etc. as patients get closer to being term. But some patients never notice this, and that is normal too. Never put anything in the vagina/cervix or do anything to try to "make the mucus plug come out". This could cause infection, bleeding, or other serious problems. ...Read more
