I am 12 weeks pregant and I have alot of discharge of mucus I have never had this before as I have 2 children the youngest one is 11. I am worried as it is ordorless and eggshell in colour. But I have so much I try and flush it out while ihave a bath and I find it very gross. Is this normal?
It is large clumps of mucus not watery at all just thick.
Or do I have a problem that I should be going to the doctor about?
I wouldn't recommend trying to flush it out while in the bathtub. Bath water is sooo not clean (even if you just got into bathtub). It can lead to very harmful uterine infections. And you wouldn't want to get an infection because it could harm the baby. I wouldn't be too worried about the mucus unless it has a very strong odor. Could it be a yeast infection? You could always use an over the counter treatment like monistat. Just call your doc office and make sure it's ok with your doc. I used one while I was preg.
If I remember right (i could be wrong) on another post a while ago someone mentionded that their doc said no monistat, but just consult your own doc b4 hand. As long as there isnt a strong odor or strange color, it should be no prob. Pregnancy discharge is the worst. Alot more and the thicknes is ever changing as it can be all of the above (refering to original post)
Please have your doctor check this out. Increased vaginal discharge during pregnancy is usually normal due to increased blood flow in the vaginal area. However, the only 2 times I have had problems with increased discharge, I ended up delivering my babies at 23 and 21 weeks. It was so heavy I had to wear a pad, and I felt gross. Everytime I would call the doctor, they would say not to worry, and that it was normal. You can read my story on my site if you want to know more... Anyhow, the discharge was my mucous plug, and I was leaking amniotic fluid. I don't mean to worry you, I am sure you'll be okay, just get it checked out to be on the safe side. Good luck & keep us posted~
Don't worry. It will be uncomfortable, but it shouldn't hurt. Just try to relax, and not tense up. The doctor will probably talk to you to try to help you relax. Congratulations on your pregnancy. Is daddy going to help you?
I Have a Question About Mucus Discharge During Pregnancy
Everyone is saying if there is a color or smell to be worried. Why is that? I am 25 weeks along (my first pregnancy) and I have had a fluid discharge along with the clumping. I just recently started cramping. My doctor did a non-stress test on me and said everything looked ok. I have tried everything with the cramping, including drinking water and laying on my left side. The thing that has worked best to keep the cramping away is laying flat on my back but then I get short of breath. I have had some coloration and smell to my mucus clumps and the doctor checked me for infection and nothing showed. What else could it be?
You can take bath while pregnat just not when you loose your plug this is my 4th pregnacy..And women tend to have more mucus if you have a pregnacy book that your doc gave you read it and it tells you things...
No.........that is not normal. Unless the cat goes into labor within 24 to 36 hours it is a definitive sign of pyometria, which is a potentially fatal uterine infection that is common in cats. Other symptoms to look for include an odor, lethargy, and not eating. So it would be best to get her to the vet ASAP.
I dont mean to sound gross or nasty but i am 18 wks along and have been all of a suden discharging a light green, snot like substance and I am very worried something is wrong. I know about the mucus plug and I am wondering if it is from that as this is my first pregnancy. If anybody knows what it could be please let me know! Thank you!!!
It shouldn't be green. I'd go and get that checked out if I were you. Call your midwife and explain about it and just tell them you are a bit concerned and want to put your mind at ease they will be happy to help and you won't have to worry about it.
