Is this a mucus plug/bloody show? There’s a slight bit of blood in it.. anyone had similar? I’m 30 weeks pregnant.

Call the labour ward, but it could be yes.

Call them staright away the number will be in your notes.

Yes, call them but I wouldn't panic.
You can have this as the plug can partially come away but can also repair as far as Im aware.
But really better to get checked out by the professionals and they won't mind seeing you.

I just came out of hospital Friday for threatened preterm labour. I’m not getting any other signs now though they stopped all that.. baby feels low and his discharge is thick green and got slight blood in it..

No it isn’t an obstetric show, it is heavy discharge (or the aftermath of intercourse!) The mucous plug is anyway irrelevant at any gestation. Call the number on your notes if you have regular, painful tightening, blood loss or liquor (waters) but the mucous plug does not denote the start of labour.

I think I will just see if I get any tightenings by morning

I’m getting irregular tightenings can’t seem to pinpoint a pattern just yet .. maybe it’s just baby wriggling around! Quite painful when I get right though ..

I’d maybe be wanting to get a swab or some advice anyway tomorrow. Green isn’t really ever a good colour to have coming out your body. I had a brownish green discharge when I had group B strep in pregnancy. It was treated by antibiotics at that point and again in labour. And baby was monitored etc.
My mucous plug was clear and stretchy with bloody streaks. And it did denote me going into labour.

In fact with your risk of preterm labour and your tightenings. I’d suggest contacting the unit tonight to ask their advice.

The mucous plug is about 10 times the size of that. It’s HUGE.

JustVent Tue 12-Jun-18 06:58:50

And it looks completely different.

When you have a show, you will have absolutely no doubt at all as to what it is.

With my daughter I never lost my mucus plus or had a bloody show and my waters never went just went into spontaneous labour at 32 weeks.

JustVent Tue 12-Jun-18 08:10:16

It would have happened but probably whilst you were in labour or probably just before you she was actually born.

That’s what tends to happen to me.

But yes the show is enormous, and like something you have never seen before (unless you have seen one before). I guess if you’re brave there’s pics on Google images...

You might be in the earliest phase of labour. As a midwife, I would consider your symptoms suspicious and I'd want to see you.

LorelaiVictoriaGilmore Tue 12-Jun-18 08:30:37

Please call your midwife!

Bumpandus Tue 12-Jun-18 09:22:43

I am seeing my midwife on Thursday so I will tell her then unless I get any other symptoms.

Bumpandus Tue 12-Jun-18 09:23:11

Just before I went into the active labour stage I lost a lot of blood so maybe it was in there the first time?

Mousefunky Tue 12-Jun-18 09:56:58

My mucus plugs looked like that but there was more of it, it came away gradually over the course of a day or two and with DC3 I had blood mixed in with it. I hope all is ok for you OP flowers.

Bumpandus Tue 12-Jun-18 10:34:44

Hi yeah I’m fine. I have had bits of this mucus coming out for a couple of weeks but only tiny bits and no blood. Last night was the first bit with the streaks (see above).

Bumpandus Wed 13-Jun-18 15:42:08

It’s now coming out less but clear with the same streaks I can feel pain in my cervix too

Bumpandus Sat 16-Jun-18 02:22:39

DD2 was born last night at 9.19pm weighing 3lbs. Thanks all! 31 weeker! She’s fab x
