Mucus Plug at 30 weeks???

so im alittle worried this being my first baby and all so bare with me for this!
  ok so i had just gone for a tinkle and wiping after i found this snot like very strechy clear /whiteish thing that looked like a boogie....now i know its not any sort of infrection, it had no blood in it and there was no smell so is this part of my mucus plug?? and if it is ...is it normal to be losing it at only 30 weeks( will be 30 weeks 2morrow)??should i be worried about this? could it mean that my baby will come early? i would really hope not being that im only 30 weeks:S

wow, i am only 27 weeks and i noticed exact same thing yesterday. I though"well that's weird.." but didn't give much concern. I sure hope it doesn't mean early labor.. cant wait to see the responses. good luck.

I can not tell you for sure because I am not a doc., however if there was NO blood at all or any color to it then I am sure you are safe. How big was it? Through out my first pregnancy I did have 'egg white' cm (cervical mucus) and quite often.
If you are still concerned you should call or see your doc.

No.

The mucous plug is similar in consistency to Jell-O. It's gelatinous, not stretchy and sticky like the cervical mucous you get during ovulation and early pregnancy.

Increase in discharge in pregnancy is normal. Many women have to wear panty-liners during their pregnancies because they have a lot of discharge.

I don't think it's your mucus plug.
I'm having thie very same discharge and I'm 32w3d now. I've been having it since I think my 29th week.
The doc took a sample and tested it.
She said it wasn't my plug, it wasn't yeast or a bacterial infection.

She said she didn't really know what it was and why it's looking like that, but she said most likely it's just cervical mucus.

What JoyRenee said...

I was having trouble remembering exactly what the mucus plug was like in texture. Its been 3 years for me.
Well good luck!!
