Hey not sure if i'm posting in the right section or not but would really appreciate some advice. TMI WARNING
I am 33 + 3 today & have a history of pre term labour (went into labour with DD2 at 33 weeks but they managed to stop it) DH & i dtd yesterday afternoon for the first time in ages & he 'finished' in me & i had the big 'O' (trying to put this in the niceset way possible ) & today when i went to the toilet i noticed in my undies what looked like a big glob of snot about the size of a 20c piece (was not blood tinged or anything) could this have been part of my mucus plug ? over the last few weeks i've noticed increased thickish/stringy discharge but nothing like this. I had a vag swab a few weeks ago to check for infection, so i know it's not that.
I've also been having period like pain/mild cramping on/off all day. Having shortness of breath even when sitting & dizzy spells occassionally (which i'm assuming is a normal pregnancy thing) my BP was checked last week & was fine.

Could be a bit of mucus plug. I went in to preterm labour at 31 weeks and was in hospital for 3 days and when I got out I lost a bit of what you described, the dr wasn't worried though so don't worry too much, once I went into labour again at 40 +5 I lost a huge amount, apparently it's normal even for women who don't go into early labour to lose it anywhere from 33 weeks, so mr dr said!

I thought it could possibly be left over sperm as well but if that was the case, wouldn't it be a creamy white colour ? this was a creamy yellowish colour & really thick. You would think i'd be an expert after 2 kids but it's been a while lol
I thought about going up to maternity just to get checked out cause of the pains/discomfort but feels like i'm wasting my time as it seems like unless your having regular, painful contractions, they will just tell you to go home & 'take it easy '

Honestly, the midwives here make you feel like your wasting their time (same with the OB) even with my history, it's like you have to be in full blown labour before they will take you seriously. If the pain gets worse then i will definately go & get checked though, i don't want to risk an early bub again ! when i went into early labour with DD2 they sent me home in the beginning cause i wasn't having regular contractions, only to have me come up again a few hours later in agony to be told by another midwife 'you are definately contracting, they should have kept you in' grrrr
Will see how i go
