I'm having ALOT of discharge!! *tmi*

Like a ton. Everytime I wipe its all over the toilet paper! At first I thought it was my mucus plug but this is too much I think. Its a clearish-white color; no odor (that I can smell); its starting to turn a little darker but not much. I'm 40 weeks 1 day pregnant and when I was checked yesterday I was almost 5 cm dialted but cervix is hard. What could this be?? Just discharge?

I never did this with DD! I lost my plug in one piece while in labor with her so I know what that looks like...I"m telling you, I've had to change underwear like 4 times today bc I just keep getting them soaking wet!!! TMI sorry lol

  • It could be your water breaking. My water broke and I didnt ever know it until the next day. I also thought it was discharge and constantly changing my panties. I found out when I finally went to the doctor that it was my water breaking and it was just trickling not gushing like I expected. If you think it can possibly be your water you need to go to the hospital because it can cause infected if you dont go into labor within 24 hours...thats what my doctor told me anyway

  • I really could be your water breaking, even if it's thick. Mine was something like that and then all of the thin fluid was actually behind my son and came out in a wave right after him. Best wishes!

  • IMO If its clearish-white and semi thick, then it sounds like your just having a lot of discharge. Thats weird that it soaks your underwear though, maybe it is your water breaking. If I were you I would call your doctor.
