Can your plug have bright red blood in it, but not be something to worry about?
I had a sweep on Wednesday, and since then my plug has been coming away in bits and has been an all over yellowy colour for the most part. But this morning there are traces of red blood through sort of clear looking discharge. I'm not overly concerned really as it's not a lot of blood, but the MW said there should only be old blood there, and red blood is considered 'fresh'.
Do you think it's just the tail end of my plug, and that's the reason for the change? I'm also 41+1 today!

I had red blood in mine and didnt think anything of it tbh. Is there lots of blood? I would be more concerned if it looked like a period but if its just streaks through clear discharge i dont think i would worry. You could always call your mw though to put your mind at rest.

Mine was blood tinged, but pink/red rather than brown. Sounds like it shouldn't be too long for you now!
Ask your mw if you are concerned though.
Thanks Maisie! It is just streaked throught it. I'm not overly concerned about it that I would want to bother the MW. I just wondered if anyone else had had anything similar. I've not seen blood in that vacinity for a while and it felt a little weird seeing it again! :-)
BG - here's hoping!! :-)

Sounds like a proper show rather than just plug, ie that things are happening! If thick red I'd get checked out but streaks are normal I think. Really hope this is it for you!

My show came out on docs hand and was very bloody. Sounds promising x

Mine started off clear then got progressively bloody until my waters went about 3 hours later. I rang deliver suite when my waters went and they were worried by the blood and asked me to come in. So I'd giver your mw a call to check. Baby out vibes to you.
Eta: initially it was bloody streaked and I wasn't too worried but the more time went on, and when my waters actually went they just looked red/pinky so there was a fair bit of blood and it continued like this the whole time I was dilating right to the end.

Sounds like a good sign. Mine was like that, and J was born the next day.

Oh no! don't raise my hopes! I'm almost convinced i'm in this until my induction next week! Now you're making it sound like it could be earlier!! here's hoping!

Mine started as clear, then changed to blood streaked - contractions started just a couple of hours later!
Hope this is stuff starting for you!

Mine was like blood streaked snot. Baby arrived 24hours later :-)
