So this just happened!!! I think it's mucus plug, as opposed to vaginal discharge, what does anyone else think?

Am overdue and it's first vaginal birth

Yes looks like some mucous plug. grin
Anything else happening? Pains?

Sore tummy since teatime but had just put it down to eating lots of shepherds pie and the multipack of twixes this afternon blush

Feel silly not recognising for def what's happening in my body but my gut instinct says that was more than normal vaginal discharge

Some pains and tightening of womb

Sounds like this is the start!

Yeah I think it is!!!!! Mine looked like that and DS1 was born shortly after.
I'm also incredibly pregnant with DS 2, I will cheer you on!

Looks like the start of it. Once it has really started, you won't need to ask if it is...you will know.

How exciting! Good luck!

I had that at 33 weeks, I went to hospital to be checked and they said nothing was wrong. I gave birth the next day!

It's starting for you OP, good luck x

Did the OP ever come back and tell her birth story? If it's on another thread can anyone link to it? Hope it went well for you OP!
