I've had no 'extra' discharge this pregnancy - I'm now 38wks. On Saturday past I had a little blob of yellow discharge - sort of like silly putty or egg yolk. The same happened on Monday. On Tues night DH and I had sex. I woke at 5am thinking my waters had gone but was told by the midwife it was increased discharge. I had a fair bit of raw egg white discharge on Weds with some tiny hair width blood marbling in it. Thursday I had a tiny blob of clear/brown tinted discharge...
In between all of this my usual discharge has gone back to normal - white and creamy.
The thing is, my midwife has said that all this isn't a show. But some of my friends think it is! Any advice? Is labour about to start? Or is it just that sex loosened something and really things aren't about to kick off?
AFAIK you can lose part of your "plug" over time and I think it can replace itself too. It could mean things could happen soon but, anecdotally, I know people who have lost theirs over a period of a week or more but then not gone into labour for another two weeks.
However bear in mind I am not speaking from experience as I never had a show with either of my first two!
BTW - nice to see you again - was thinking about you just the other day!
I had a few shows, from about 36.5 weeks maybe? Was doubting they were really shows as too early, but my lovely DS arrived at 37 and 6, so I was very lucky. My shows were just an increased amount of blobby (sorry) discharge. HTH.
i had a show with dd, even took the tissue to the labour ward with me LOL the mw looked totally grossed out. it happened at around 11:25 am and i had dd at 20:26. thats the only experience i have ever had though as my nieces and nephews were all sections. sorry
