    When wiping earlier there was a clear jelly like substance on the loo roll...(tmi) I had a feel at it and it was very stringy and bouncy, nothing like any discharge I've had before. Hoping to god this is my plug and labour is starting soon??? Anyone had their plug come away?? What did it look like? I've heard it's usually blood tinged or snot coloured so I'm a little confused.

    I was due my baby yesterday (22nd July), please let this be the start, lol!

    I have read somewhere that it can be but not 100% sure, ring your midwife for advice x

    I have read that it can be clear and isn't always pink stained.

    Thanks for all the replies, ladies. My waters started leaking this morning (so three days after I lost my plug) and I've been getting a lot of period pains and tightenings all day, so I'm thinking this may be it, finally!! So excited for labour, lol!!

    Good luck with the rest of your pregnancies xx
