    I am assuming this to be her mucus plug - totally normal

    I agree it is most likely normal......... :wink:

    Also ...you can do the sniff test...helps to determine.... if she has an infection going on....if it is a foul odor then she has a prolem if it does not have a foul odor she is OK..... :wink: Happy Kidding.... :greengrin:

    Thank you!!! Whew! I thought that didn't come till closer to the due date- but on doing a search I see others have said as long as a month prior was normal.
    She looks fine other than the plug, so I guess I'll stop worring now. Thanks again!
