I’m 8 weeks and 3 days pregnant on my third pregancy. I have a healthy two year old from my first, but the second pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage at 10 weeks – though they said the baby probably died at about 8 weeks. I have just found some jelly-like, clear but yellow-tinged mucus in my underwear – probably about half a teaspoonful. Unfortunately I do remember this happening during the pregnancy when we miscarried, so now I am extremely worried that this might be happening again.
The mucus has no smell. I did a little bit of an inspection with my finger (sorry for the details) and found that I have LOTS of thick white mucus – also with no smell. I was under the impression that the white mucus is normal but I’m really worried about the clear/yellow jelly. Could I be losing my mucus plug? Is it a sign of impending miscarriage?
Thanks for your advice,
