Velvet- that is normal. I am 37wks and I have the gelatin discharge. If you want to have the baby you can try castor oil. You are thinned out enough that it should work. It worked with my first and I'm going to try it again tonight.

Velvet- i have been having the gelatin discharge as well. I am 39 weeks along and due Aug. 16th. My dr informed me that the mucous plug can come out in pieces. Good Luck!

i too was told that i was 2cm dilated, and i have been getting a gelatin discharge for the past month. i didn't know that a woman could be dilated without having a bloody show or having water breakage. i am 37 weeks and 3 days. my daughter is 13 months and she came right at 38 wks. ppl tell me that i could be the same with this baby. i sure hope so cause my fiance is one his way here. how long til i pop??!!! some ppl say it could be weeks, but is it possible to have this child come as early as my last? ...

I am 39.3 weeks Due on the 14th and lost my mucous plug last Monday (9 days ago) and still nothing. Doctor says I am still at 1-2 cm, 70-80 effaced, soft but a posterior cervix. I was hoping for a baby last week, yet here I am still waiting. Been having sooo maannny BH lately, but nothing regular. Now I am having a slight yellowish discharge. Hopefully that means the cervix is doing something again. I am sooo tired of being prego!! Good luck-
