Hello

Are you speaking of thick blood clots? Or mucus?

mucus
Expert:  Kerry replied 7 years ago.

Hello

Usually the mucus plug is one episode of mucus. So it is possible it was in with the other mucus you've been having. If the mucus is odorous or an odd color, or is causing you pain or itching, you may have a yeast infection. In either case, I would try to get in to be checked by the doctor tomorrow to help alleviate your nervousness. I'm sure that baby will be on its way in no time!

Congrats!
