I really haven't had much discharge throughout my pregnancy (at least not as much as I read others have). Just some clear, here and there and I think some of that might be from being so darn hot this Summer (sweat). Well I am almost 31 weeks and for the past 2 days I have had a little egg white like, thicker discharge. I had a childbirth class today and they mentioned the mucus plus being like that and now I am worried. Obviously it is too soon for that, but I want to clear my mind. Anyone else have this?

In any case, I did mention it to the CNM, because this didn't happen at all with my first pregnancy, and not until 34 weeks with my second (which leads me to. Think it really is chunks of mucous plug), so I was a little concerned about it happening so early. She said that as long as there's no blood, it doesn't indicate anything about cervical changes, and it will regenerate. And that it probably happens to a lot of women who either don't really notice or don't think to mention it.

I couldn't NOT chime in for this. I started getting thick mucusy discharge like that at about 26 weeks with my first one. And everyone told me that it was fine and normal blah blah blah and I had my baby a week later. It was definitely the mucus plug, even though I never saw any bloody show. Ever.
It's not something I'd say to worry about, but I would get it checked out if I were you.

Anyway, I will see how today goes and if I still see it I will call my doc. So far, so good, though. Thanks again!

I lost a bunch of little chunks of mucus yesterday. No blood, and it was a very white color. I had hardly even a hint of BH, so I was not worried. But did wonder if it could be my plug. I suppose it will regenerate with having so many weeks left.
