Mucus plug?


Hard to know. I wonder if this might be the mucus plug or "bloody show" which occurs before labor starts. Since brown discharge may be blood, ask your doctor about this, particularly since you are still early. I trust you are not having contractions or other abdominal pain. And I trust that you are feeling plenty of baby movement. Check with your doctor to be sure about this. LGromkoMD

While this is likely a normal effect of pregnancy related to the hormones of pregnancy, it might represent a yeast infection - go get it checked out!

Lots of possibilitie


Assuming you don't have a placenta previa, brown discharge at 35weeks pregnant is most likely not anything bad - but needs to be reported to your doctor. Some common causes: early ctx's with a little cervical softening or dilation (preterm labor) can cause this; sometimes vaginitis (yeast or BV) can cause; intercourse can cause) - less often: could be leaking amniotic fluid; small abruption.

You are preparing for labor. If the discharge is unusual, accompanied by pain or blood then I would contact your OB.

May not be normal


Egg-white discharge vaginally is not uncommon at 35 wks, but is not the same as the water breaking, which would be clear water-like fluid. If you're not sure if the bag of water is leaking you should be seen soon.

Go to Hospital


This large amount of discharge may be normal, BUT, it could also be a sign that your water broke or you are dilating and this is the "show" of mucous once the cervix is dilating. Either way, 35 weeks is too early for both and you need to go to hospital to be evaluated.

Probably normal


Discharge increases during pregnancy due to all the increased hormones your body is producing wirh pregnancy. However, it should be checked by your doctor to be certain you are not leaking amniotic fluid or coming down with a vaginal infection as that is also common during pregnancy.

This could be related to cervical ripening, recent intercourse, a recent vaginal exam. As long as there is no recent trauma or a history of previa it should be ok... Brown discharge indicates old blood...

What does it mean when a woman who is 35 weeks pregnant and she has brownish discharge coming out? Is she getting close to going in labour?

Call you OBGYN


You probably should get seen by your OBGYN. They will likely want to examine you, check on the baby, see the discharge and see if your cervix is starting to open.
