This isn't good is it? or is it nothing to worry about?

I am 32 weeks pregnant, and yesterday had some mucus plug come out. It was green and mixed with a bit of clear stuff. It was only a bit, so wasn't too worried. But just this morning I noticed a dampness after my shower, so sorry tmi coming up) I wiped with tissue and sniffed it, and it smelled sweet rather than like wee.
But it was such a tiny amount just a little bit of dampness, not gushing like waters breaking iykwim.
I have a pad in and it isn't even wet, so don't know what to make of it now. I definitely felt it trickle,(is not wee) but there is nothing now.
Apart from that have had braxton hicks. Baby is moving but less than usual, but could this be normal for 32 weeks. I have an appointment tomorrow with consultant, but just wondering whether I should go in tonight, or maybe not. I have other children, two with autism who go back to school tomorrow so have alot on, so don't want to go in unless I absolutely have to.
Have been feeling a bit sick, but that might just be lack of sleep, also have had the trots blush
WWYD?

Can you ring the midwife and ask for a home visit? I'd see someone just to put your mind at rest.

Go to hospital or at least ring your midwife, if it is your waters then you will probably need steroids and all sorts, not meaning to scare you but you need to act.

hi im 17 weeks and for the last week i have felt my baby move but since last night i havent felt it move one and got some pains can any one help or got any avice thanks

mumble yes you must ring and see someone tonight, you may need antibiotics to protect the womb from infection, maybe a stitch - do they put them in this late.

sophie its still earlyish to feel regular movements, but as you havnt felt any and have pains, you need to ring the antenatal unit immedicately too, it might be that you just need a quick check and monitor babys heart for a bit.

Hope you both get the help and reassurance you need

Hi Sophie you need to phone your midwife on the emergency number, it may just be that the baby has moved and you can't feel her where she is laying. But get it checked out, you always need to get any changes in movement checked.

Hi Mumble, I would say you need to get checked out - when I was in labour the midwife attempted to break my waters, only to find I had none! Basically like you i had so little i wasn't even making a pad wet and thought it was wee or someother discharge. In fact my daughter did have an infection after delivery, probably because i didn't know my waters had gone sad Not trying to scare you - just saying it is better to be safe. Good luck!
