Hi I'm pregnant with no 4.Two mornings ago i woke up to find myself feeling wet between the legs.My husband and i had had sex the night before so i presumed it could be some residual semen? However when i went to the loo to check it was stringy a bit like egg white similar to when you ovulate.
About an hour later same again but this time it reminded me of the plug you pass shortly before going into labour alot thhicker and more like snot iykwim no blood no pain etc just this,but just a small amount. Ever since i've been checking each time i go to the loo- quite often at the mo! Haven't had any more but have noticed i'm quite 'wet' in general and it does smell slightly sweet.Could it be possible that i have dislodged my mucus plug and this is a small leak of amniotic fluid?
I had this and panicked. Had it checked out as I thought it could be loss of amniotic fluid. Turns out it wasn't but doctors couldn't tell me what it was other than say I had heavy discharge. I was so wet that it soaked through my jeans. Happened once at 16 weeks and again at 33 weeks. Get it checked though.
Don't want to worry you but i lost my mucus plug at 19 weeks and ended up going into premature labour at 30 weeks after 2 months on bedrest. It was nothing like normal discharge though, more like very very tough jelly (kind of like jelly that you buy in packets before you add water to it!).
It does sounds it could just be semen but always worth getting checked out just in case, to make sure its not amniotic fluid or anything like that.
sorry, what im about so say is maybe TMI but sometimes the next day (after sex) seamen that is still inside can turn into a blobby stringy jelly with whitish streaks in so it may well have been that.
Although not all mucus plugs contain traces of blood the majority of them do, but of course if you are at all worried than please go to your Gp or midwife and discuss it with them. And obviously keep an eye out for other labour symptoms starting.
