    It looks like discharge, although it's hard to tell with photos. What is the consistency like? Tmi, but is it solid and stretchy?

    That looks like similar discharge that I get but I get it in smaller quantities. I would imagine its discharge too as in my experience, plug is plentiful, gross and bloody usually :)

    It's hard to say. But personally, I never lost a mucus plug with my first and I went into labour naturally with her at 37 weeks. So it doesn't necessarily mean much anyway.

    I'm having this ATM also and I'm guessing it's plug it's stretchy and jellyish not creamy like discharge also I would be worried if my discharge was that colour lol so that's why id say plug I seem to be losing a lot of it lately hopefully all good signs that were near the end now good luck &#10084;&#65039;

    Hard to tell....I know everyone is different. Some lose it well before labor, some lose it during labor....it's one of those frustrating things! Good luck!

    There's a difference between a bloody show and mucus plug. Bloody show is usually bloody and a sign of labour but loosing your mucus plug which mostly happens in bits and can regenerate, isn't nessasarily. I'd say that's mucus plug - discharge is suppose to be clear and watery. I've been loosing mine too.
    Hope this helps

    I've been having some more since my sweep.
    I'm now 40+1!

    Think I could also be leaking waters maybe ? My oh bottoms were covered and it soaked onto the bed

    I'll attach photos
