Mucus Plug?? Brown Blood??
I am 39w1d, due next Wednesday with my first baby...and (sorry, TMI) when I went to the restroom a little while ago I noticed more discharge than usual, and it was very "gooey" and it there was some brown blood in it. I had always been told that the mucus plus was assocated with red blood...but I'm a little concerned about the brown blood...any ideas as to what this could be? My mucus plug/blood show starting? Or just a fluke? I've put a call in to my doctor because he said if there was any blood to call right away...I don't even know if this qualifies as blood. It wasn't a lot, and it was definitly the color of "old" blood...maybe I'm just making too much out of nothing, I was just curious if anybody had experienced this or had any thoughts as to what could have caused it...
