    Default Losing mucous plug at 29 weeks?

    **TMI**

    Hi lovely ladies

    Over the past couple of days after emptying my bladder, I have been seeing brownish discharge when I wipe.

    About an hour ago I saw a small amount of brownish-clear discharge in the bowl.

    Throughout the day I had a couple of sharp pains, kind of like period/ovulation pain.

    I haven't had sex or done anything remotely strenuous. I don't think I have thrush or anything either.

    My baby is still moving around a fair bit, but seems lower.

    I was wondering if anyone has had this happen and if I should go to the doctor or call my maternity ward for advice?

    I'm not too worried and don't want to overreact..but I've been googling (bad idea, I know!)

    Thanks in advance xo

    How scary for you. I would call the hospital and speak to the midwives and they will advise what you should do. They may get you to come in so they can check you over.
    Dont google!
    Good luck x

    Yep always call the hospital or care provider for advice & if you feel concerned request to be seen and monitored (they should suggest this to you anyway). Be sure to tell them about the period type pain. It's quite possible everything is fine but this might put your mind to ease.

    Get a cervix check, you could be silently dilating. Good luck.

    I'm another one who thinks you should contact your hospital. I had an irritable uterus and started having contractions at around 28weeks, bubs was born 3 days after her due date, so managed to stay put. It could be nothing, but better to be safe, good luck.
