It all depends on the overall pattern. Since you are pregnant, it's likely from the thick plug that forms in the cervix to protect pregnancy. The plug forms after ovulation and then the pregnancy hormones trigger it to become even thicker. It constantly rejuvenates itself, causing all kinds of mucusy stuff.
The reason you observe something very similar before O, is because the plug in the cervix liquifies and comes out during the fertile phase so that sperm can enter.
Ok, thanks. When charting it what do I put it down as? I have been documenting it as creamy because it is really a good mix of creamy and what feels like eggwhite, but when played with for a while it looses some of it stretchiness.
It depends entirely on the type of charting you do! With Billings, you would describe exactly how it makes you feel when you walk around, and note the appearance of anything you happen to see. Touching it not reccomended. Other forms of charting have you measure it's stretchability and whatnot. Creighton offers you a menu of 27 different types of mucus to choose from, based in cery meticulous toilet paper exams. So it all depends on the type of mucus charting you're following!
