Ease my mind please - mucus stuff

I know that starting to lose your mucus plug doesn't indicate labor anytime soon. I started losing mine at 32 weeks with DS in bits and pieces and it wasn't until I was in active labor that the goo all came out Smile

But I've been having way more CM lately and surprisingly I've had EWCM for the past couple of days. I don't remember that with DS. And then tonight I had to pee and when I stood up a stringy mucus piece came out. Nothing huge or anything and no blood in it. Looks exactly what it looked like when I started losing it with DS.

And of course my feet started swelling tonight. Ugh. I feel like everything is happening so much earlier with this pg!!!

So ease my mind or tell me I have right to worry. Either way, just help me from going crazy!

I have had (and other girls on my BB too) tons of CM. I did when pregnant with DS too.

But yeah, stuff happens more/sooner this time around it seems!

AS pregnancy progresses you get more progesterone in your system and, accordingly, more mucous. I've had an insane amount of mucous this pregnancy- enough so that I lost my plug a few weeks ago without even realizing it (until a cervical check later on). I wouldn't worry, though all that CM can be a bit of a pain.

I don't know about the plug part, but with this last pregnancy I had more CM than I would've thought possible, I had to wear a panty liner because there was so much. This was baby #3 for me and the first time I had that much CM. I'm not even sure I get that much when I'm fertile every month Smile It didn't seem to increase or decrease as labor got closer, it was just there from about mid pregnancy til the end in all it's disgustingness.

I had way more mucus with this one than with DD as well. I didn't lose my plug until about 2 days before going into labor, and I didn't get bloody show until the day of.

This exactly. Before I even got a BFP this time it was awful (first sign of preg, I guess!) and hasn't let up since. I get the exact same stringy-goop stuff you describe on a daily basis. It's gross, but totally normal. Smile
