    It's probably the mucos plug, which is normal. I've had does loose the mucos plug as early as 7 weeks and still have normal kiddings, altho usually when the plug comes out before 4 weeks...they kid a tish early.

    Today there is no discharge and she seems normal.i have a 8 monthold nubian/alpine that was in heat early in the week and i think the other one was having a false heat.
