mucous plug?????

okay so i am 37 weeks, 1-2 cm dilated and 60 0r 70% effaced. yesterday before i went to bed i noticed a glob of light yellowish-greenish mucous come out of me.

today there has been alot more, coming out everytime i wipe after using the bathroom. the day before i first noticed this i had false labor contractions lasting all day at anywhere from 2-10 minutes apart. could this be my mucous plug coming out in small peices?

i have been looking up information online but keep getting mixed answers. some women have noted that there mucous plug was in fact light greenish in color. (snot-like) and other people say it could be an infection. i am confused and do not want another wasted trip to the dr.s with nothing wrong.

(i have no other signs of infection and the mucous discharge is odorless)

what do you all think. please respond!
