Last night after I went to the washroom I noticed a thick jelly like clear mucous on the toilet paper. I've had lots of discharge during my pregnancies but this is the first time I've noticed it to be very thick and almost firm.
I haven't noticed anything more of that discharge today but I've been having pressure and achiness in my lower back. Which isn't uncommon for me to feel during pregnancy.
But the two combined and after a google search (why do I do google searches?), I'm wondering if it's possible that I lost part of my mucous plug last night. I've only ever noticed losing one mucous plug before going into labour but it was blood tinged, this was perfectly clear. So I'm not sure at all!
I was dehydrated yesterday and I read online that that can really thicken up CM (not sure how accurate that is though) so perhaps that's it. or perhaps it's just another pregnancy discharge and my achiness is from being dehydrated yesterday (still playing catch up with that today).
Anyone else experience CM like this before?
