Hi I am 40 weeks and 2 days andjustlostmymucus plug about3 days ago. Anyways when me and my hubby have sex I gottothe bathroomtogetridofthe sperm in me lol (sorry). And the last couple of times we hadsex I got sit on the toilet and about to wipe and I notice mymucus plug stuff but also it's a bit reddish the firstcouple timesI wipe. Then it goes normalthe snottygreenish/white colour. Butwhats withthe blood time stuff? Does it mean I am almost ready to have the baby? I am a first time mom. I found out 2 days ago I am 2 cm dilated and90% effaced. Please help with any moms who have experienced this or just about that it is. I haven't got any contractions yet though :(
The sex could irritate your cervix, causing the spotting. But uh your discharge shouldn't be green. Have you mentioned the color to your OB before?
No I have as I just started getting it a few days ago. But I read online about a mucus plug and what not and it says thats how it should be.
Quoting jessica1795:" No I have as I just started getting it a few days ago. But I read online about a mucus plug and what not and it says thats how it should be."
Oh, but also keep in mind that a mucus plug can regenerate so don't be alarmed if you keep seeing it. If you get a big glob with blood mixed into it, then that's probably your bloody show and labor should be starting really soon.
It's.normal for the mucus plug to have a greenish or yellowish tint to them. It's also normal for it to have some blood. Plus, you just had sex and that can cause some harmless spotting.
