Last night I had strong, painful, regular contractions for about 4 hours straight. They wouldn't let up when I changed activities or positions. Finally I was able to fall asleep and nothing more came of it. Today, the baby is really low so I assume all the contractions pushed her down (she's been dropping for about 2 weeks anyways but now she is super low) . Just a bit ago, I was sitting in bed and I felt a weird sensation. When I went to the bathroom there was a rather large chunk of mucousy substance. It might've been discharge but I was concerned it might be a chunk of mucous plug? TMI: it was a mix of clear bits and cloudy bits- kinda like marble-looking? 15 minutes later I felt a big gush of colostrum (I assume..) come from my breasts. I know all this is common in pregnancy, but is it a cause for concern since it is all happening so early?? I've had Braxton Hicks since last night's episode but nothing really painful, btwAnswer Question

I would put a call in to your doctor and get their opinion. Some people lose their mucus plug early but with all your other symptoms I don't think it would hurt to call.
