    I had protein in my urine two weeks in a row, just a trace and was told the same, contaminated sample from discharge.

    Like you, always had alot of discharge, even with my other two pregnancies.

    But, my plug has been very different.

    It's white/clear slimey and jelly like (not sticky) with pink/brown streaks. Sometime's it's just completely brown.

    My 'normal' discharge has seemed to of stopped since my plug has been coming away, but I don't know if that means anything really.

    Has yours got watery? Mine got watery before my plug started coming away. That can be a sign labour isn't far off.

    In all honesty I would only ever consider it to be the mucus plug if it was blood tinged...

    I had lots of EWCM with my first son and my second and I didnt for a minute consider to it be my plug.

    I'm not in 3rd trimester just yet, but I've lost little pieces of my plug every now and then for the past 6 weeks. Its very think like jelly and clear or mucossy looking. I heard when you really loose your plug its alot, and has some bloody streaks in it.
