Mucus Plug Color Question PLEASE HELP

DinaAW - July 1

I have been losing my mucus plug for almost two weeks now and I am one day past my due date. Today I seemed to lose more of it and the color has changed. Instead of being a clearish/yellowish discharge it is more of a yellowish/brownish/redish color. Is this the "bloody show"? Should I call my doctor or wait till it gets heavier or darker? I have been 90% effaced, 1 centimeter, and -1 station for over a week now and I am scheduled to be induced monday morning. I am not having any contractions or cramps this morning but I did have a few last night. What should I do??? Thanks ladies!

If it's getting a more reddish color, than you're getting closer. However, if you're not having contractions you probably have a while to go. I've always heard within 24 hrs of bloody show. You can always call your Dr. if it will ease your mind, but unless you're having contractions/cramps I don't think you have to worry. Hope it's soon for you!

I am 36 weeks 4 days and I lost my mucous plug. My doc said it was normal and that doesn't mean anything besides my body is preparing for labor (effacing/dilating) She said they use to think labor was eminent when that happend but now they know otherwise.
