It's usually like thick snot. Very different from my normal pregnancy discharge. If you google image search mucus plug you'll get a lot of very interesting, but good, pictures.

I remember last time around thinking it looked like rubber cement!
Mine came out and that was what started my labor in the early morning of the 25th of October. It looked like a 1-1.5 inch long jelly looking thing. That had clearish and blood in it with stringy tissue hanging off of it. Sorry tmi but that's what mine was. I had NO DOUBT!!! I never lost mine with my other kids. Same as contractions, once they started, the pain, everything about them was different then the BH. So I knew for sure it was labor time.
yes. i lost my plug for the last several weeks before giving birth. then, about three days before labor, the plug started to include some blood and was constantly shedding. everytime i wiped, some of the plug was there.
Yeah, I have some everytime I go to the bathroom. So far it does not have any blood. Yes, Beth, it is pretty nasty! I'm really looking forward to my appt tomorrow afternoon to see if I have made any more progress. Last Friday I was 1cm and 50% effaced. I do have an induction scheduled at 5:30 am on black Friday. I'm starting to feel like I won't make it that far!
