View Full Version : urgent help need - TMI warning...
Ok, its probably just my body being weird again, but...
I have lost several large chunks of mainly white, but slightly pink tinged jelly substance. One glooped out on my chair while I was sat on the PC (:zombie: ) Um...:shock: :shock: :shock:
help...could this be a show, or would there be much more of it? Am I going mad? Actually don't answer that part...should I call delivery and get it checked cos I'm assuming one shouldn't be without one's plug if it is possible its that I'm losing.
Even worse question - should I keep a bit if more comes? :tmi:
Sorry for the grim nature of the thread...:oops: :oops: :oops:
Hi shoppie... its been a long time for me, but from what I can remember that sounds like my show... might not be tho!
yes I would keep a little bit I wouls also call the midwifes/ labour ward.
You have a little way to go untill your due date don't you? and it does sound like a show to me, they may just want to check you over.
can't hurt to call and will put your mind at rest.. let us know how you get on.
Sounds like a show shoppie :ellie: but you can lose it a couple of weeks before you go into labour. You cpuld contact your midwife if you are worried, but I dont think there is a problem Re infections unless your waters go too.
Hope nothong else happens for a few more days :kiss:
Yes, if it is pink tinged it is most probably your show. Mine didn't appear till I was actually in labour.
Let your mw know, it doesn't necessarily mean it is the start of anything but best to be safe.
That sounds like a show. Don't worry, you can have a show weeks before labour starts, or on day, it doesn't matter. That isn't what's sealing your cervix, it's just extra "protection" against infection, other rogue sperm etc. Unlessv you start to feel twinges, I'd say you're ok leaving it and just mention it at your next midwife appt.
I would call just to set your mind at rest. It could be that you are starting a bit early or maybe it is a false alarm but they will probably ask you to go in to be sure.
Give them a call :thumb: I was three weeks early with G and I started bleeding and that was the start of it for me. Like I say though it could be nothing so don't start worrying yet :kiss:
It does sound like it could be a show, like the others have said I would ring your midwife or the labour ward just to get checked out.
Tis quite exciting no turning back now you are going to meet your little witin the next few weeks :grin: :ellie:
Thanks girls, that's great :thumb:
Didn't know it could indeed be a show and labour still be a few weeks off, feel much better now! :rock:
Baby stay where you are for at least another week or I can't have my home birth! :lol:
I'll calm down now I'm not expecting baby shoppie to just sort of pop out, have a bath and maybe give the labour ward a call in case - they'll probably tell me not to worry as I have the MW on Tuesday anyway...
It does sound like a show. Mine was darker but still jelly like (ick -sorry :wink: ). I had that at 39 weeks but had still not gone into labour by 40+1 when Alex was delivered.
If you're concerned phone your m/w but as has been said it should be fine as long as your waters haven't gone as that's when the infection risks start.
GOOD LUCK :ellie:
I rang the ward to check, and they seem quite happy, so I'm quite happy too. Didn't realise you were still protected without the plug :oops:
Only thing is they want me to keep a check on movement and asked for ten by 4 pm or to give them another call. She suggested a glass of ice cold water, but absolutely nothing doing. Does anyone have any other good ideas for getting baby to shift? Otherwise I suspect they''l make me go in for a check-up...
have you felt babs move yet? otherwise a glass of something fizzy & cold usually works for me, or laying as far back as you can bear or hunching over forwards often gets them wriggling.
good luck! keep us posted! :ellie:
Try something sugary. And maybe lying down quietly for a while - movement tends to soothe them to sleep.
Also, the movements means every little movement - not that the baby has to have had 10 "sessions" of movement :smile:
Will try lying quietly with a sugary thing - excellent suggestion as it will taste nice too! :lol:
I know it means every little shift - I'm sure the amount I'm now focusing on bump willing it to move isn't helping...:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
Ooh, blimey, those rolleyes smilies are going at different speeds - looking at them makes me feel dizzy! :lol:
hows the movements been shoppie? I found bedtime seems to get mine moving :rolleyes: :rolleyes: typical :lol:
Hope all is ok and baby stays put for a while longer!
