I am 35 weeks pregnant. My son has been head down and his position has been low for quite a while. My doctor, and just about everyone else around me, is convinced that I am going to go into labor early, especially considering that I had to get the shot to stop my contractions when I was like 30 weeks. Anyways, I keep on getting really bad cramping that feels like horrible period cramps, and sharp pains jolting me throughout my stomach but it hasnt been getting hard. My doctor told me that all of that is just small contractions but nothing to worry about or have to get checked with because Ive had a few false alarms with contractions. Ive deciding Im not going to the hospital again until I really cant bare the pain of the contractions.
Now to the question.. I just had to go to the bathroom(quite a common occurance being pregnant, as Im sure you all know lol) But as i was sitting there, I heard little plops in the toilet. When I wiped, there was a slimy substance on the toilet paper. I know that I will have discharge, I have been having discharge, but this was a bit thicker than usual. When I looked in the toilet, there were a few thick whitish small blobs at the bottom.. I am now starting to get my sharp pains in my belly again. All of this literally JUST happened like a few minutes ago, and I dont like calling my doctor over nothing. I am home alone, my Fiance is at work, and I figured I would as you fellow Momma's what might be going on?
I was wondering is it is my mucus plug starting to fall out, and if it is, would contraction type pains be common to follow this? What is your experience of losing your mucus plug, does anyone's match this experience of mine? And should I be worried about going into labor soon if it is my mucus plug falling out? I dont know much about the mucus plug falling out, what it's like, what follows, and how soon after labor usually follows..
I am inexperienced with pregnancy due to the fact that this is my first. Any advise would be great! Thank you Mommas.
