I know that it's common to have a whitish CM discharge during pregnancy, but is it common to have a lot of EWCM? I've found substantial amounts today on the TP, more than I ever seemed to have when TTC (and no, the irony is NOT lost on me).

Has anyone else experienced this? Am I being silly to think that if I'm having an extra surge of estrogen, I'm carrying a girl? If it's not estrogen, what else could account for the EWCM?

I don't know, but I've had a ton of EWCM too.
If you decide to check the sex at 20 weeks, you can tell me if it meant girl, and if you don't I'll let you know in August. Deal?

It's your body building up that mucous plug. It's fun huh?

Oooh, cool. Come to think of it, it has been awhile since I had any EWCM.

It can come again towards the end too. But I don't remember why. Losing bits of the mucous plug maybe?

I've had all sorts of extra discharge this entire pregnancy. Sometimes it's real watery other times it's more the creamy white stuff they tell you to expect, but every once in a while for several days it's a heavy volume of EWCM just like when I was ovulating.

My doctors don't seem concerned about it though so I assume it's normal or at least normal for me.
