Pink discharge before labor

Common Questions and Answers about Pink discharge before labor

discharge

Hi girls i am 31 weeks pregnant and i have just gone to toilet and noticed pink discharge? is this normal?
when you wipe look at the tissue if you see mucous like really thick discharge with a brown pink or red streak in it that is called bloody show/mucous plug which would mean your cervix is open
When a women loses her mucus plug it doesn't really determine how quickly labor will come. For some women it may be a few weeks before anything happens, and for others it may happen that same day. For my first i went to pee and real light blood came out and a few hours later it was time to go to the hospital. With my son it was different i had the mucus discharge what your explaining and i leaked that for a week or two before it was time.
I am only 29w 3d and I am now freaking out because I went to the bathroom had some pink discharge when I wiped. I have been feeling weird down there today as well. I don't know how to describe it. I'm scared and don't want this little one coming now....I had more contractions than normal today...but they are dwindling down again. Only a couple were really strong..the others just felt like BH. I am getting ready to call my midwife....
I started losing my mucous plug about two weeks before I went into labor BUT I only noticed blood streaked mucous about 2 or 3 days before I actually went into active labor!!! Don't worry about only being 1 cm dilated. I went from 2cm to complete (10 cm) within a few hours! It can mean absolutely nothing at all as far as how quickly labor will progress. Good luck and please keep us updated. Side note: The pink discharge may have also been brought on by irritation caused by the internal exam.
I ws just in the hospital Friday because of discharge and Preterm labor. They did a internal exam and a "Papsmear" type thing just to get a sample of my discharge. The doctor said it's the normal type that they would find for woman at this stage in the pregnancy. She told me to watch for blood~brownish-pink in color~then return if it gets really bad. My mucus plus with my son was NASTY!! It was the day before I deliveried him, I had this snot like glob come out.
When I went to the bathroom this morning my pad was pink and whne I wiped there was pink discharge (like the one I get right before getting the period) sorry TMI... and a blood clot the size of a bean. I have an appointment at 10:30 am, I was just wondering if I should call the doctor before that... Thanks a lot.
no.. I've had preterm labor before. I KNOW what that feels like. It was the worst 48 hours of my life. It's just very minor pains and a tiny pink, and now a tiny brown. I've called my nurse about it before, they say they aren't concerned unless I have bright red bleeding or severe cramping. I just want to know what could be causing this minor stuff.
But a few days ago I had a tiny dot of blood on the toilet paper after using the bathroom along with a pink colored discharge. That was all until today when I went to the bathroom and had more discharge. I felt something strange, not urine, coming out of me so wiped and there was an awful lot of pink discharge. I had to keep wiping and wiping becaue there was so much. When I was about done wiping it was not pink anymore but more of a brown color.
I mean I've had the normal stretching cramp feeling before that happend and no pink spotting until we had sex. It was only pink for an hour and it slowly turned brown. I haven't had any cramps. This morning I had a little brown discharge with no cramping. I am praying everything is okay.
) SIGNS OF PRETERM LABOR (Before 37 weeks) • Change or increase in vaginal discharge • Pelvic or lower abdominal pressure • Constant low, dull, backache • Mild abdominal cramps (with or without diarrhea) that may feel like persistent menstrual cramps • Regular or frequent contractions that occur four or more times in one hour (which might be painless) • Your water breaks in a trickle or gush
Her HCG was 4600 1 week ago and that was up from 2 days before that. They took blood again today so we just play the waiting game now. They are doing another sonogram on Feb. 2. I am just worried for her and was wondering if any of you had spotting that stopped and started and it all worked out. I would think if you were having a MC that the spotting would continue and get gradually worse. I am a grandma to twins already one of which has special needs (I LOVE them to death!
Tonight, I had a very small clump in my underwear, tinged slight yellow. Can coughing cause preterm labor or dislodge the mucus plug? I have had three children, all full-term, no problems with preterm labor. I think that I have had this mucus mixed with leukorrhea much of the pregnancy but can't remember! Could it be just the increased mucus production (like in my sinuses too)? I called my doc yesterday (this was before the clump in my underwear), and he didn't seem worried.
) I'm just unsure only because I've never had symptoms even throughout my whole pregnancy.
When the cervix begins to open wider, the mucus is discharged into the vagina and may be clear, pink, or slightly bloody. Labor may begin soon after the mucus plug is discharged or one to two weeks later." (From web md) I was looking up this info as well, since for the past month ive been yeasty. I also read that it may pass over time, and not all at once. Nothing to be worried about, just another sign its almost over!
OMG yeah especially the number 2 feeling and a pink or bloody discharge are the things that my doctor told me to watch for ...am 35 and 6 days too..you have to go and check it or atleast call them ..dont wait until Thursday..
I was a finger tip just a couple days ago and then yesterday had a little bit of brown discharge which I thought was from the exam the day before and went back to the doc today and have dilated 2 cms!! I also have had diarrhea BIG TIME! And have been feeling sick. I had contractions 3 minutes apart the other night and I've been having them just more spaced out but they're stronger so I guess that's what causing the dilation. Anyhow, you could be in labor.
My husband thinks that I should wait a little bit before calling my doctor to see what happens but i am concerned. Has anyone got any idea if this is something to worry about or has anyone experienced this before? Please help in easing my mind. Any advice would help.
Had bloody mucus plug that night and friday after intercourse i had some bloody show and the next day lost more bloody mucus plug (sorry alot of TMI) then continued to have brown pink and red discharge off and on for the next 2 days. had my next dr apt today (tues) and dr said i have progressed greatly over the week. am now easily 1 cm and stretchable to 2 30% effaced and he said my cirvix has come down a great deal more.
Hmmm okay I just went to bathroom again and I wiped before I peed and was clear discharge then I peed and was no blood then wiped again was dark red blood Idk if it coming from my pee area or the other area...
I had all that for about 2-3 weeks before I went into actual labor. I was sent home from the er twice. They stopped my contractions. The night before I went into labor I lost the rest of my plug. I had thought I lost it 2 weeks before but when I saw it I knew that was what it was for real. Just need to hold on for 3 more weeks!!!!
This has never happened to me before. Did any of you ladies get this before giving birth? I like your responses better than my OB's, lol. Any experiences would be helpful.
I was just wondering if brown discharge that occurs about a week after you thought you stopped your period is any cause for concern?it lasted for three days and it was extremely light. I usually get brown discharge before and directly after my period, but i have never had it a week later.
Ok ladies i spoke to my cousin and the cramps are not going away there about 30min apart is labor starting for her (you think) she said the feeling is diff from braxton hicks she said they feel like cramps she said she feels like her period is about to start... should she just wait a while to call her doc... there has been no show of mucus plug but the last several days she's have really bad discharge all clear & white not pink or red but she's had more discharge than usual...
I'm 38 weeks and 2 days today and just noticed brown/pink thick discharge in my underwear. I think it's probably a part of mucous plug. I also have some mild cramping. My Dr. said to hang tight until my contractions become painful. With my son, I had some heavy white discharge (not bloody looking like this time) the day before my water broke. I don't know if I should continue to work tomorrow or Tuesday. I have to go to the office, and it's an hour away. Do you think it's a good idea or not??
What you're noticing is probably normal leukorrhea (NOT LEUCORRHOEA) — the odorless or mild-smelling milky discharge that you occasionally noticed in your underwear before you were pregnant. There's just a lot more of it now, partly because of increased estrogen production and greater blood flow to the vaginal area. This discharge is made up of secretions from the cervix and vagina, old cells from the walls of the vagina, and normal bacterial flora from the vagina.
I will be 38 weeks on Wednesday and my discharge (gross!) is thicker and heavier. Is this normal? It is not pink or anything, but I have definently noticed it. I have also been experiencing abnormal contractions for the past 2 weeks on and off. They go away after a few hours and don't come every day. My doctor told me to time them and if they start coming regularly, to go to the hospital. I have an appointment with my doctor on Friday to schedule my induction for 39 weeks pregnant.
I am twenty years old and I have been with my boyfriend for a very long time now. I have been on birth control for a very long time as well, but we do have unprotected sex and he pulls out. Today I went to the bathroom and had very dark brown discharge, a lot! I am really worried. My period is suppose to start in two days. Can someone help me? Please!
