    Hi

    Yes it does sound like it could well be her plug but even though it 'can' be blood 'streaked' its not always and from how you explained it, it sounds like she could be losing more blood than normal.

    I'd get her to phone the labour and delivery ward to double check and make sure, they might just want to check her. Best to get checked thn leave things to chance.

    Keep us updated and wish her all the best

    thinking of her
    :hug:

    My first i lost it in bits, just like small sticky lumps of snot (sorry tmi)

    my 2nd was like a jelly lump of thick cm but a little pinky and blood streaked

    my third, well thats was just gross, kept coming andcoming when i wiped and was everywhere, really horrible and lasted about 3 days....

    I'm dreading what this one will be like, i'm scecretly hoping i start with waters breaking so it washes it all away :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Let us know how your friend gets on

    People here talk about a mucus/jelly sort of lump... but I remember that the only reason I went to the hospital when I was in labour was because I was "bleeding"...

    I'd bled loads through my pregnancy, didn't know much about labour and shows etc, so panicked, phoned the MW and she told me to go to the hospital and get checked because of my history... It turned out it was my show and I was in labour... but obviously I was just like your friend, terrified it was something more serious.

    I never had an internal so that wouldn't have caused mine.... but some people do experience bleeding as a show.. :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: Tell your friend to call a MW anyways...
