It's probably your mucus plug. What color is it? I'm also 34 weeks now and I havent lost mine yet, but I have a 6 year old daughter and with her it actually came out just 2 days before I had her and it was like stringy, mucusy and like kinda brownish.

i've had that the past few days except mine looks exactly like snot. it's my mucous plug and that's probably what you're experiencing. if that's the case it probably means you're dilating already. it could also be just a normal increase in v____al discharge that comes with the 3rd trimester..... it's hard to say.

thanks guys for your responses, i am 34 weeks pregnant and am at 4 cm already, is there anyway of knowing for sure what it is?It kind of worries me, it is clear just like snot.

Your 4cm already? Wow!! So, your baby will be born anytime. When I had my daughter, my water broke, I went to the hospital, Got there like at 8:40am when they checked me I was 4cm and the baby was born at 11:41am, so it was exactly 3 hours, no pain or anything. I didnt even feel period cramps or back pain or anything, just my mucus plug 2 days before, my water broke and that's it. So I have no idea what labor pain is like and she was my first, I hope I have the same experience with this one. I would tell you that what your experiencing is defininetly your mucous plug or just other things coming out. When your in labor you get all sorts of weird things coming out of there. You should definitely ask your Dr though, as to what he thinks you should do.

Hi Cynthiabrue - I just gave birth to my little boy on 1/22/07 (just got home tonight and haven't had time to post my birth story yet!!) and will a__sure you that what you are experiencing is your mucous plug! I started losing mine in chunks and strings about 2 1/2 weeks before I gave birth. Sometimes it would just be in my underwear, sometimes it would be there when I wiped and sometimes I would just see it in the toilet after I went pee. The amount of the snot looking stuff varied - sometimes there was only a little and then other times there would be a large amount - always clear in color or sometimes it was a little yellowish. I will tell you that it doesnt mean that labor will start soon tho, so dont get your hopes up.....I lost mine for a good 2 1/2 weeks before I went into labor and was also dilated to 3. Hope this helps you! Good Luck!

I have been experiencing the same thing and am also 34 weeks. It's been just in the last few days. It's almost similar to the cervical mucus you get when you ovulate (before you were pregnant). Mine is stretchy and clear. One day it was a small peice...almost like a piece of "snot"...I'm so sorry for those I'm grossing out, but not sure how else to describe it. Mine also is not bloody or discolored. I am sure hoping it's not my mucus plug, because I still have six weeks to go and I don't want to go into premature labor. My doctor is also away till February 14th, so I won't have any answers till then!
