I am 30+6 and haven't really suffered with discharge during my pregnancy so far. However last night I was discharging a bit and this morning I had a 'lump' of thick, jelly like discharge. I am thinking this could be more like a 'show' but there was no blood and it would be very early.
This is my first pregnancy so not really sure what it means - is this normal? Should I contact midwife? Everything else all normal
Any advice, thoughts all gratefully received. thanks x
Someone with more experience will hopefully be along in a minute but it does sound like a show. We were told at ante-natal class that you can lose this at any stage and it can regenerate, so it's not necessarily a scary thing!
Saying that, I think I'd call the midwife unit and ask their advice anyway, they might want to see you and just check you're not dilating. Hope it goes well.
I had a show at 33 weeks last time. I called my MW who said you can lose it at any time and it can regenerate. She said as long as I didn't have any regular pains, cramps of tightenings it was ok. The next day I started getting contractions and DS was born a few days after though!
So I'd probably just call your MW to let her know and see what she says.
I would be wary about those saying the plug can regenerate though. When I lost a bit of mine, the maternity said to come straight it is a clear sign that things are altering (cervix changing). As it turned out they were right and I gave birth a few days later!
ZuleikaD ha ha ha, no sex here - I have horrid SPD/PGP so unlikely to be anytime soon either
It was only small - about the size of a 5p piece and tbh if I wasn't pregnant I wouldn't even have thought twice about it. Have been out most of the day so haven't called midwife. No further discharge and everything else all normal - babby kicking as much as normal and nothing resembling a cramp or a contraction.
Thanks for all your advice - think I'll sleep on it and see how I feel in the morning.
I have had this since about 28wks, discussed it with the MW. Mine looks like I have sneezed, big blobs of snot. They are only concerned if it looks like cottage cheese (thrush), dark green colour (merconium) or bloody (show). Other wise it is normal but very gross!
