mucous..maybe tmi

I am 32 weeks pregnant. For the past few days ive noticed mucous coming out of me. It is not green or yellow, doesnt stink, and there isn't any blood in it. It's just alot. I haven't felt any contractions. I dont have any infections. So my question is, is it normal to have ALOT of mucous coming out??

  • You do have an excess of discharge when you are pregnant, and that does not mean that it was your mucus plug. I distinctly remember when I was 16 having a friend (18) who was pregnant and complained of being "extremely wet" all of the time. I did not know what she was talking about until I got pregnant...it sometimes was to the point of grossly excessive and I had to use pantyliners. However, this is normal, it is your bodies way of keeping the baby safe by constantly cleaning down there.

  • A lot of mucus or discharge in pregnancy can be a normal thing, have you talked to your doctor or ob/gyn about it? I would if you havent to see what they have to say. If you notice a greater amount of mucus even if it does not smell or have blood or any funky colors in it you should still let your doctor know since your 32 weeks and your baby would be considered a premie. Just remember that lots of mucus does not mean that labor is near, but just incase I would let your doctor know. With my last pregnancy I had really bad mucus for over a week before I went into labor. But I would be safe then sorry, Just make sure!! Hope this helps you!! If you have any more questions feel free to ask me!!!
