Is this normal?

On Tuesday morning my doctor tried to strip my membranes as i previously posted, and she told me to expect some spotting. I did spot after the appointment, a lot but nothing alarming - yesterday and today i am still spotting but only a really little bit, a brownish color and it looks mucusy--but it's not heavy, it doesnt look like when i googled what a "mucus plug" looked like, i was just wondering if this is normal spotting or if there is a possibility that maybe i am losing the plug a little bit at a time?

Could be either/or or a little of both. Totally normal! I started losing little bits of my plug after my first internal at 36 weeks and it has continued, even up to now.

I had just a tiny bit of brown today myself after just a internal on Monday. Nothing like what I would expect a plug to look like. I think it is normal and just a tad of "old blood". After my c-sections with one of the kids, I could have sworn I lost my plug after I came home.

Its possible to lose it bits at a time. My first was like that... Lots of little bits. This one came in two parts.
