Sorry about the tmi, but I had a large glob of very squishy, not hard at all, clear gel-like discharge today that has me wondering. I am 25 weeks right now. Should I be concerned? There was no smell and haven't had more since... anyone else have this happen?
Interesting. I would think at 25 wks, it's probably not the mucous plug, and even if it was, it was probably going to regenerate, as it often does. I've had those kind of globs when not pregnant, and know it can be caused by other things, maybe something totally non-pregnancy related. Have you googled it? Seems harmless IMO, and I wouldn't worry too much if it's not blood-tinged.
I've had quite a bit of that throughout my pregnancy so far (Im 15 weeks). It is almost like EWCM before you ovulate. I was told it is nothing to worry about and a lot of people have random cervical mucous during the course of their pregnancy.
You haven't had it any earlier in pregnancy? I've had since 4 weeks I'd wipe and see GLOBS of what would be described as EWCM but more chunk and thick every few days. I'm pretty sure it's common.

That sounds normal to me. I think your mucus plug is constantly regenerating, so you are producing lots of mucus. I'm surprised this is the first time you've seen it if you're 25 wks. I've had that happen frequently with both of my pregnancies, and it seems to increase as the pregnancy progresses.

TTA for 2 years with FAM, then:
Yep, its the first I have seen of this sort since I have been pregnant. I get it often in the week before I ovulate when I am not pregnant, but while I have been pregnant I have mostly had very watery discharge, slightly milky in color. Except for weeks 4-13 when I was bleeding moderately (gah). Good to know its common! I haven't seen it again yet, though!
