What type of discharge is this?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok guys. I'm 35/4 and my 36 week appt is just next week on Tuesday so I know I will find out soon enough but I am very interested to see if my strange discharge means anything. I am very sensitive downstairs and prone to infection. I don't feel any infection just yet but I have noticed an increase in discharge the past few days (white and creamy) but today I just wiped this big huge long bugery thing. It was very thick and mucus like but it was white. Is this normal, possibly mucus plug, or a sign of infection? I would think mucus plug but it wasn't a glob on my paper it was a glob that stretched end to end. Really looked like a sinus infection burger lol. I know, kinda icky. Any ideas what type of discharge this was?

Please see my disgusting post on Mucous Plug (LOL) , I just had all that last week. It was mucous plug for sure! and I am 35 weeks today and having lots of the milky white discharge. I have had like 3 or 4 of those globs. I went to Dr. today and things are starting to progress.

My vote is for mucous plug.

Def the mucous plug. You might see more. Mine came out in two parts on consecutive days. Unfortunately it didn't signal the start of labor, I'm still very pregnant 5 days later.

Mucus plug for sure. I have been having very similar discharge the last few days. I think if it was a sign of infection it would look more lumpy like cottage cheese, at least that is how my MW describes it...

I just am having such a hard time believeing mucus plug because I don't feel like there is anything at all going on down there. Like not even a tiny little smidge. Well hopefully it was a mucus plug. I will cross my fingers doctor has something cool to say on Tuesday! innocent.gif

I'd say the same.  I lost a huge chunk of mine 2 weeks before being induced with my first though, so it didn't mean much for me.  With my second, didn't lose it until hours before labor started.
