I've been feeling lots of BH, I think (haha)
Pressure down low.
But I can breathe again and am no longer getting kicked in the ribs!
Today, I wiped and had a light pink streak in my cm. It was just normal cm, not thicker. It's just been one time so far. I was just at the doc on Friday and my urine was normal. I don't think its anything to worry about, but wondering what you think. ??
I thought the mucus plug was thick and gooey. This was just normal cm, with a pink swirl. I have been having some really small gobs of snot like cervical mucus too, but just thought it was a thicker than usual discharge. hmm.... I know it can regrow, but is it normal to lose it this early? I'm 34w2d
It is normal, especially just small amounts. I would guess mucous plug, too. You can start to lose it weeks beforehand and you may only be 34 weeks, but you technically only have 3 weeks to full term, so it's not too early for bits to start coming out. I would guess the small snot globs of cm are def part of it, and the pink swirly stuff is a result of the little globs coming out. With DD, my plug came out in a big snotty glob, but it wasn't bloody at all. I got the pink stuff like you're describing a bit after. One of those fun and glamorous pregnancy things!
I think it's more common to start losing your plug when you're a few weeks out from labor still, and usually when it's a subsequent pregnancy it tends to happen right before labor. I don't remember where I read that, but it was true for me, at least with my first. I lost a huge chunk of plug when I was about 36 weeks and it freaked me out, still no action when they induced me two weeks later! I never lost any with my second and was induced at 39 weeks.

If its just a tiny tinge I wouldnt be too worried. Your body begins to gear up several weeks before the main event. I had painful contractions everyday with Everett for a few weeks and he didnt come until his due date. It was tough.
