Is this my mucus plug? Sorry about tmi picture but I'm not sure whether I should be nervous or not blush

It could be, although it looks more like heavy discharge to me. Mine was more like jelly and it's often blood streaked too. I had stuff like this, with some blood in at 37 weeks and she held on until 41 weeks, it's not always a sign of impending labour so try not to panic either way. How far gone are you?

Mine was like that at 08:20, at 10:20 I had more mucus with blood in it, at 19:15 I had my daughter grin (I had a fast labour, despite being a first timer).

But I had been having (mild) contractions for a day and a half before the mucus.

I'm 35+6, it's my second baby but never had a show with my first child. Bump has definitely dropped but I know second babies can be engaged for weeks before born. I did wonder if it was heavy discharge but it seems different in texture to what I've been having throughout...I may be thinking too much into it but packing my bag just in case!

Thank you!

Mine was more like clear jelly although that could be discharge mixed in with it

Mine was also like clear jelly, blood streaked the more than came away.

Mine was more like thick snot first time, and dark period blood second time. You may as well be prepared but hopefully it’s just discharge!

Second babies tend to engage later than first! Though I've been told they can pop in and out, if she's engaged you never know!

That being said, it does look like thick discharge, especially as it's pretty white. Might just be me but my plugs were a yellowish colour like snot grinAn increase in discharge is meant to be a sign of labour approaching or so I've read!

Good luck whatever happens!
