    I started loosing my plug about 2 weeks and it was clear snotty and so exciting! Ha ha! Then last week it turned brown (assuming that was old blood?) and it was like that until yday when it turned clear again and was comming out in huge massive globs!! (How much plug Is up there!!!?) is it normal for it to change from one colour to the other like that?

    Im still waiting to the the 'bloody show' bit!
    Im sick of this snotty stuff, even tho its pathetic amounts each time, i only got one big blob a few days back.

    Odd that its gone back to the clear type stuff again tho!!!! Ive always thought how much is up there lolol!

    FX its not much longer and ur lil MR is out this week! And Noah! ;)


    I dreamt lastnight that i text u saying im in labour and u text back saying IAM ASWELL!

    And we kept texting eachother updates and both logged on here to still do eachothers labour threads LMFAO! :shock: xx

    Yeah u can lose it over a long period of time, plus normal discharge can thicken and add to the confusion cuz that also gets a bit "snotty" ..... But ur actual plug is really gloopy and can b white, clear, dark brown or yellow. So that's no official colour, urs sounds like it's just coming away gradually, and obv different parts of it are different colours.

    Here's a question, I normally wear a pad cos of discharge, have done for months now. Will I know Iv had a show? Is it really different from normal discharge? Will the pad absorb it or is it really thick? I worry about this with my waters too, how will I know?

    they r massive pads hun like night pads but bigger and thicker. they r for after birth hun cos ull be bleeding alot, blood clots aswell. to minimise the leaking hun.
    u r not allowed to wear tampons for atleast 8 weeks, till after bleeding stops n uve had 1st period.

    ive bought asdas little angels mat pads, 98p for 10 ull need a good few!!
    but atm ull just need panty liners just cos of discharge xx
