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?
Indigestion, nausea, or vomiting are common a day or so before labor begins. Increased vaginal discharge during the last few weeks of pregnancy as the body prepares for the passage of the baby through the birth canal. Increased Braxton-Hicks contractions during the last weeks of pregnancy, which are "practice" contractions that prepare the uterus for labor and may cause some effacement and dilation (thinning and opening) of the cervix.
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....
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
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 was 38 weeks when I had him btw.
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.
Sounds like discharge to me. I'd put on a pad and if you fill it within an hour go in, I made sure I filled two before going in when my water broke.
) 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
I'm currently 33+6 Nd the past 3 days I've had thick white discharge coming through and I think its my mucus plug slowly coming in parts, today I've now had it come through all light pink and some during the day it now has specks of red (I'm guessing blood)coming through. I'm also experiencing Braxton hicks since yesterday and today there slowly getting more painful. Are these signs of my baby is coming and if so how long do you reckon before I go intp labor very scared!.
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.
Mucus plug is usually darker (normal discharge should be white, clear, or pale yellow). Your mucous plug will be tinted pink, red, or brownish most the time. Otherwise, it's hard to tell. It's definitely thicker than normal discharge!
I'm 37 weeks and 1 day. Last couple of days I have been having a lot of discharge and Thursday night last week I had a lot of mucus and just a little bit of light pink blood in it. But since last night I have been having badd back pain lower and feels like I need poop I already did this morning but still haves the feeling and then I have been having random contractions all day. What I'm trying to ask is do yuu think the back pain sounds like labor or just back pain??
) 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!
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.
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..
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...
30pm they were closer together but irregular and i was still spotting (brown and light pink discharge) so i called my Dr to let her know i was still spotting the nurse told me not to go in unless my contractions were 5 minuts apart 1 minute long for an hour. At that's point i was in ao much pain i didn't know what to do!!!
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.
This may be TMI but I just had to run to the bathroom and had a bad case of diarrhea Ive been constapated all the way up until today also I noticed earlier my discharge was a light pink... I heard that diarrhea means labor is soon... I was wondering if any of y'all had something like that and them went into labor. If so how long did it take for you to go into labor.
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.
