Sorry if this is a silly question but i'm not sure. 40+4 today, think I had a show yesterday, jelly like substance snot coloured not bloody or anything (sorry TMI), haven't been having any pains or anything.
I normally go to aquanatal class on a Friday and just wondering if it is still ok to do so.

I wouldn't personally. You're obviously getting close to labour.

I wouldn't , as there is a higher risk of infection after losing the protective mucus plug! smile

I wouldn't either. Apart from infection risks, there's more jelly to come and you wouldn't want it floating about the pool...

Sorry if this is another silly question but does that sound like a show? This is my 2nd dc but I was induced the last time so I really haven't a clue didn't have any of this. Have been searching other threads but all describe theirs as having pink or brown streaks in them
