What could this mean?

I am having quite a bit more discharge (TMI) than I have ever had (doesn't smell or anything, there's just a lot) and menstral-like cramps here and there. Does anyone know why this could be? 38w Could I be losing my mucus plug or anything...Sorry, first time mom...I don't really know much about this.

  • WELL THE MUCUS PLUG IS MORE SNOT LIKE AND STICKY. ITS A DIFFERENT TEXTURE THAN DISCHARGE. IT CAN COME OUT IN SMALL AMOUNTS OR ALL AT ONCE.
    IF YOU ARE NOT SMELLING ANYTHING AND IT DOES NOT ITCH THEN IT MOST LIKELY ISNT AN INFECTION BUT COULD STILL POSSIBLLY BE.
    THE CRAMPS ARE NORMAL BUT CAN BE A SIGN YOU ARE CLOSE. MAYBE CALL YOU DR AND SEE IF THEY WANT TO CHECK YOU FOR INFECTION.

  • sounds like early labor momma! Congrats. Start timing those cramps. I think I was losing my mucous plug but I didnt see blood lke they say you do until they broke my water. Seriously time your contractions though. I didn't time them till they were really intense and then they were less than three minutes apart and we were twenty minutes form the hospital LOL
