Well back and everything is perfect. The cm and pains are normal apparently at this stage of pregnancy. If your still worried definitely get checks out :)

Hey debs I'm 30 weeks and getting globs of clear cm. Bit like fertile cm. I've been getting some lovely period pains aswell as the normal tightening of the belly. I had a read on dr google and it did say could be a sign of infection. I have consultants today so will let you know how I get on.

It does sound like you're shedding your plug bc it is like jelly. When I lost part of mine 3 weeks ago, it was clear, jelly like & had streaks of brown in it which is old blood. My dr checked me, but everything was as it should be. He said it is common to lose part of it early with subsequent pregnancies & he only gets concerned if the blood is red. The pressure, etc that you described sounds normal to me. I would at least give your dr a call bc I always side on the err of caution with premature labor. The mucus plug does regenerate fairly quickly, so if you have shed part of it, it will grow back.

My daughter was born at 36 weeks, so she was considered a "late preemie" & suffered from late preemie complications (she needed oxygen, help with body temp regulation, feeding issues, etc). With me, I started losing my plug at 34 weeks, had some spotting at 35, & then my water broke at 36. I never went into labor, never had a single contraction. They ended up inducing me at the hospital. So, premature labor can look like the start of traditional labor (if you catch it in time they can usually stop it or postpone it), however if your water breaks they usually have to deliver the baby. They have been very cautious with me this time round as I'm higher risk to go early again. I lost part of my plug at 26 weeks & about had a heart attack!
