It could be. Jelly looking? When my water broke, it didn't stop. First trickled out and became heavier.

I always say this---  losing the mucus plug was NOT what I expected.  I expected one event and a plug.  LOL  It happened over many days and agree, it was jelly like and more like just colorful discharge.  Lots of colors---  pink, orange, yellow.  So, yes.  You could be losing your plug.  good luck

Your water breaking and losing your plug are two different things. The plug should be sticky like thick snot and normally will be anywhere from clear/white to yellow/green booger color and maybe even streaked with blood. It's also only about 3TBSP worth of gunk

Your water (amniotic fluid) should Never be colored like that, and will be a Lot more! If it's colored at all or smells anything  it sweet call your OB right away and head to he nearest L&D and tell them what happens.  Color/smell amount of water
