Hi a bit tmi sorryblush , we had some friends round tonight, we were having a nice chat when suddenly I got an agonizing stomach pain, it passed after a few seconds and I thought nothing of it until about five minutes later when it happened again then it started coming every few minutes, it felt like labor contractions. I had to excuse myself as the pain was so bad. I went to the bathroom, worried it was something I had eaten and there was something in my pants that looked like the mucus plug you loose in early labor probably about the size of two 5p coins stacked then the pain eased.
I went downstairs again and half an hour later it happened again, the regular pains then the loss. I am not pregnant and there was no bleeding just a slight pink tinge to the clots.
Any ideas? feeling a bit confused

Goodness, sounds horrible!

Could it be bad ovulation pains?

Are you sure you're not pregnant

Are you sure you're not pregnant? confused

Has something like this ever happened to you before?

Test yourself for a BFP. You never know.

FrankSpenser Wed 14-Aug-13 22:53:02

Hope you're OK..

Gp tomorrow?

Hope you're not in too much pain tonight.

Could it be the start of your period?

Have you recently finished a period?

100% sure you aren't pregnant?

I followed an American series on Youtube that featured woman who'd unexpectedly gone into labour, not even knowing they were pregnant and were having babies on kitchen floors and gas station restrooms etc. confused

Please get this checked out - women not knowing they're pregnant til birth isn't just an urban myth. Hope you're ok and have someone with you.

Jings, are you sure there is no way you are pregnant?

I'd test/GP to be on the safe side.

I know it's possible to lose the uterine lining without it being broken down properly first, but that gives a larger more blood/"meaty" (sorry) loss.

I am quite sure I'm not pregnant, never 100% but I tested about 4 weeks ago and bfn (am on the pill and usually do a just incase test every 6 months) had a normal period about two weeks ago.
Feel a bit uncomfortable now but not in any real pain.

Phone NHS24 (that's Scotland, unsure what its called in rest of UK) for some advice would be your best bet.

KareninsGirl Wed 14-Aug-13 23:02:16

You wouldn't get a bfp in the 3rd trimester I don't think...I may be wrong though. Hope you're alright.

hiddenhome Wed 14-Aug-13 23:03:41

You can still have periods whilst pregnant, but if you had a period a couple of weeks ago, then perhaps it's an ovulation pain - have you been taking your pill properly?

Conina Wed 14-Aug-13 23:04:48

Ovulation pains? With lots of egg white cervical mucus?

It would fit with two weeks after a period...

FannyFifer Wed 14-Aug-13 23:05:33

Test can be negative if pregnancy a good bit on.
Put on any weight lately?

Was going to say ovulation pain and EWCM in a big clump but not when on pill I don't think.

Update OP, we need to know if we should get knitting grin

thebeastisback Wed 14-Aug-13 23:08:33

The pain has all but gone, just feel a bit sore but not coming in waves or anything anymore. going to take some paracetamol and get some sleep and hopefully not wake up giving birth smile

I've had a huge lump of jelly like stuff before when I've been ovulating. Yuk but happens a couple of times a year.

Sounds like an early miscarriage to me.

OnTheBottomWithAWomensWeekly Wed 14-Aug-13 23:21:46

It doesnt sound anything like an early miscarriage, why would you say that? No bfp, normal periods, no symptoms, nobleeding or ongoing pain.....?

hiddenhome Wed 14-Aug-13 23:27:38

I'm really hoping it's a surprise baby. In fact, I'm getting my hopes up.

Oh I had this a few months ago, even took a photo of plug to show GP!

Apparently normal during ovulation
