so i am currently 21weeks pregnant, this morning i woke up with an ache in my back, i tried rolling into different positioins but it was really aching, i got up and it seams to have gone away so i thought maybe i was just laying funny in bed last night.
then sorry for the TMI!!!! but i felt a bit wet down there, and there was some white mucus, about 1cm big. so i thought not much of it, i often lose some mucus about that size, then it happened again about the same size. so i thought i would go into the bathroom and check and i put my finger in there and when i pulled it out there was a large blob of it. its deffinetly mucus as its not breaking up, its like jelly a bit. it was still white with no blood in. then i sat down and i felt a bit wet again, this time another blob but it was on my underwear, i dont know if it had fell out when i was in the bathroom and i hadnt noticed, or it had came out when i sat back down. so all in all iv lost just over the amount that would fit into a table spoon, and in my vagina its really slimeyso to put it..... so i thought id leave it an hour and see what happens, my bub is moving fine and i checked his heartbeat with my doppler which was also fine. so what does everyone think??? im kinda freaked out but trying not to be if there is any more i will be calling the hospital and heading up there to be checked out, but what does everyone think in the mean time???

Louise if you're unsure I'd speak to your MW and see what they say. It can mean nothing, but not always - like everything with pregnancy. Honestly girl, I would rather know and feel better, than worry and not know what's happening down there.
Good luck - let us know how you get on.

G/C but it sounds like normal pregnancy CM from what you've described (you do feel very wet and sticky down there). If it was your plug it would be tinted with blood giving it a pink/brown/green appearance. Also the loss of your plug can happen during labour, at the onset of labour or several days/weeks before.

Give your midwife a call louise. Hopefully nothing to be too worried about but always best to get advice from a professional if you're concerned xxx

Kazzie - my mucus plug came out when I was at 21 wks - and I went into prem labour at 28 wks when it happened again - I never had any obvious blood in mine and was creamy yellow kinda colour. Now that I know what it is and what it looks like, I'm so paranoid about it now and that it might happen again.
Still think that it's wise for Louise to call - if it were me given my last experience, I'd be on the phone. Not trying to freak anyone out, just sending some small words of experience.
