sorry if this is TMI but im slighty worried and wanted to ask advice,

iv had extra mucus from very early on but today when i went to toilet i noticed that there was quiet a lot, it was sort of cream coloured and stringly and a lot more than usual,

im worried its my mucus plug or something
or that it means something bad is going on
is it normal to have this, i don't have any pain or bleeding or anything and feel fine.

I've had some snotty like stuff that I have never had before randomly coming out.
I think it is normal. My mw said it sounds like normal pregnancy discharge.

Totally fine. Your cervical fluids will change over the course of the pregnancy.

*IF* you lose your mucous plug (not everybody does) it will most likely be at the end of the pregnancy and you can't miss it. Mine looked like a big old wad of strawberry preserves in my underwear. It was like a car wreck - I couldn't not look, but it was just sooo odd/weird/cool.

Completely normal. It's one of the signs I knew I was pregnant this time. Tons of creamy cervical fluid. I tend to have more during pregnancy than ovulation.

Your plug will be bloody.

Like everyone else said, totally totally normal. I've got all kinds of crazy stuff coming out of me. Plus, your mucus plug would be tinged with blood. Google it if you can stand it. It's super gross.

Jools, I've had mucous-pluggy stuff a few times since about week 8, with no changes or any reason to believe it's anything than our bodies making goo. It's weird to experience but I don't think it's a big deal unless accompanied by the usual cramping/bleeding warning signs of a miscarriage.

yep... completely normal...

and just keep in mind that when you do lose your mucous plug later on it can regenerate and you can lose it a few times...

I always have notably more discharge than usual when pregnant. Sometimes I use pads or pantyliners, but usually just get in the habit of changing my underwear more often.

I get the stringy clear to white stuff all the time. And after DTD with Hubby, I always get globs of yellow.


Completely normal.
