mucus? *maybe tmi*

I should know this, seeing as this is pregnancy number four for me, but should I be worried if I'm having increased amounts of discharge? It's thicker, but not the "booger" consistency that everyone describes the mucus plug as being. More like... snot lol. It's not got any odor to it, and it's not clear, but not white either... is this something I should call my doctor about, or just wait to mention until the next check up?

  • I would wait until the next visit. Even if it is part of the plug it's only a little bit of it and nothing to really worry about. It just means everything is in healthy working order!

  • I wouldn't worry unless it had an odor or was giving you some kinds of problem. You just get a ton of discharge when you're pregnant.

  • The only reason I worry is that I'm not even 30 weeks yet and I have a history of preterm labor..

  • i wouldn't worry unless there was red (blood) streaks in it... it's pretty normal to have no odor discharge (from what i hear)
