I lost my mucas plug a week or so ago an had an induction yesterday.  My cervix wasnt 'favourable' and hadnt started thinning.. Since having the 2 tablets yesterday i had a few contractions, nothing impressive amd have been sent home for rest till morning when they will try again. My question is: i am having lots of thick white discharge.. Is this my cervix thinning?

Anyone have any advice or knowledge? Not really worried but just want to know if its thining or not because it will help tomorrow when they try to induce again and i cant do another day of it not working. Made me feel really rubbish having to come home without a baby in my arms :-(

Im not sure but I started getting thick creamy discharge at around the same time my cervix started softening so it may be. If you can, try evening primrose oil as it helps the cervix soften and works pretty quickly. Insert a couple of capsules into your vagina and push them up next to your cervix to dissolve over night. You can also gently massage your cervix directly with the oil on your fingers and take a couple of capsules orally too.

It is completely safe but you must wash your hands and scrub under your fingernails first to stop any risk of infection.
