Mucus plug

I am 39 weeks tomorrow and have noticed a little bit of brown in my discharge. Should I be worried or is it the mucus plug coming away? Baby's head is two fifths engaged at my last midwife apt.

Ohhh sounds like it it should increase and be mucusy... Although a bloody show is normal but if it's more than a pad full get it checked out. . Baby's head doesn't always fully engage until full labour anyway so don't worry about that.ur prob notice more when u have a poo. .. If u are concerned ring ur midwife and just let them know so they can reasurre u... Keep active! ohhh exciting! ! Xx

I was on the labour Ward a few days ago and a lady there had brown mucus like discharge and the midwife said more likely to be the plug :)

Thank u so much ladies - I have noticed an increase in discharge as well and its only a little bit of brown the last day or so but you take notice every little thing when you're pregnant don't u?! Definitely not a pad full. I'm so excited - am trying to keep as active as my body allows :-) my friend said she wasn't two fifths engaged till her actual due date (she had to be induced) so hopefully I'm on course to not be too overdue, guess u never know tho!

Thanks again xxx

My waters broke that evening and had my little girl on 20th!! :-) can't believe she's 6 weeks now!!

possibly more inquisitive about it, it dosnt hurt you but some people pass it in stages others may get a little then a blob... Was saying to my hubby about everyone saying sex works... He just looked at me and said no chance lol lol he's not a business end person x

When I had a show it was pink in colour alot of disharge with a few red blood streaks running through it. I was only 35+ weeks so didn't know what it was. Less than a week later he arrived. How exciting.
