Question about mucus plugs..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am 15 weeks, and this is NOT my 1st pg, but this is the 1st time i've had this happen...

I think i am losing bitty pieces of my mucus plug already... When i go to the bathroom and finish my business and wipe down there i have little bits of clear jel looking stuff on the t.p... Not big or anything, but i have been having a lot of lower cramping and it hurts quite a bit.. Then periodically i have this stuff come out when i go to the bathroom...

So.. Anyone else had this, should i worry.. Should i call my ob... What is up!!!

I know the mucus plug is constantly replenishing itself, but this is really starting to worry me.. My next OB appt in on the 12th, and i will tell her about it then, but should i call before that do you think??

I think you should call.

It's probably completely normal but there's nothing wrong with calling to check. Then you won't be worrying for two weeks. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I would call also just to be on the safe side. I don't think it could be pieces of the mucus plug this early on.

Could you maybe have a slight infection that is causing the discharge and cramping?

Or maybe it is just the regular pregnancy discharge and you have more of it this time than you did in the past, but that doesn't explain the cramps.

I had the same thing. I also had lots of menstrual like cramps and tons of braxton hicks contractions all along. Everything was fine. Good luck

I agree with some of the other ladies that it is probably not your mucous plug. Although, technically, the MP is being renewed and replenished throughout your pregnancy, so you *will* definitely see more discharge as time goes on.

When your estrogen level rises, you will tend to have more mucous, as well, so that could have something to do with it.

I think it's completely normal, but it never hurts to run things like this past your doctor or midwife.

I also have the clear goo... does'nt worry me. But I have'nt had any cramping, call your care person and mention it... if it's something to worry about they will let you know.
