I'm 31 weeks and 1 day and for the last two weeks I've been getting really nasty slimy discharge, sorry tmi....it's really thick, whitish/yellow...smells normal...it's just gross and makes me feel dirty....I'm worried about preterm labor now though, i had a positive ffn, which i know is not a telltale indicator of labor going to start....but I'm also 3 cm and 50% effaced....just so many thoughts going through my head....

Sounds like your mucus plug. It can come out in gobs like that, super nasty I know. It grows back though. And if it makes you feel any better, I was 3cm dilated at 31 weeks with DD and STILL went overdue. Try not to stress mama.

It happened with my other kids to lol, but i just thought that it was just normal discharge....for some reason i thought that mucous plug was hard small chunks ...lol...my fifth pregnancy and i silk find out something new....even the doctors when asked with my other pregnancies just said it was normal discharge....and thank you that's very reassuring knowing that first of all it grows back and that you kept your DD in and baking till term.....I'm trying not to stress, it's just hard sometimes

I totally understand. I'm a huge worry wart myself. My mucus plug has always been panty slime. Bleh. Freaked me out with my first because I had read that losing it meant labor was coming soon and I was only like 26 weeks or so when I started losing it but my OB assured me that it doesn't mean much. Labor could still be weeks, or in my case months, away.

i would tell the doctor so they can swab it to make sure its not a uti or yeast infection, this same thing happend to me, but it turned out i had a uti ect. was given meds all is good now.
