30 weeks pregnant and baby is bigger than he should be.

i'm 30 weeks pregnant on my second child, and he has been head first since 27 weeks. the doctor has already told me he is bigger than he should be. (4 pds at 27 weeks) and now i'm feeling a lot of pressure, lower back pain,unusual bowel movements, and every time i go to the restroom i keep having white gooey stuff in the toilet after i pee. i haven't got to call the doctor cause they are closed when i get out of my 6:00 class and i asked my mom and she said it could be my cervix thinning or my mucus plug.
also the doctor told me that my insecsion from my last pregnancy didn't heal right. should this be an issue considering i'm 30 weeks, i haven't stretched anymore,i've dropped & i only weigh 109?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe are not normal. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation. Physical examination, urine analysis would be needed to look for the underlying cause. Consider being in rest. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any unusual/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
