37 weeks 3 1/2 CM 50% effaced losing mucus plug that is brownish or pink over last 3 days. Will I go into active labor soon?

Mucus plug: The mucus plug is usually dark green to brownish and the size of the palm of your hand. You're probably having some bloody show from last office exam. When you go into labor has more to do with your uterus being ready to go into labor. I imagine it may be from today to the next week or so, but there's no way to guarantee ...Read more

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?

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

Concerning...: In the presence of increased mucous discharge and blood, one has to think that this might represent a change in your cervix. Given that you are only 33 weeks pregnant, this certainly must be checked by your OB provider. Blood tends to tun into a brownish discharge as it evolves over time.

What is the brown discharge in third trimester my mucus plug already came down 1 wk ago?

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

I'm 37 weeks today, dilated to a 1-2, lost my mucus plug five days ago and now I have brown stuff on my underwear. Could my water be trying to break?

37 weeks: Brown discharge could be from the cervix softening, dilating and effacing (thinning) even more. As long as it's not a lot, baby is moving well, you don't have a fever or any severe pain, it's probably fine to sit tight. If if doubt, call your OB doctor. ...Read more
