1. Hi Michelle,

    You don’t need to worry about ever giving me too much detail!

    I am so sorry that you are worried about whether or not this pregnancy will be successful. Even though you had some mucous last time, a miscarriage more often begins with bleeding and/or cramping. Your mucous plug has not yet had time to develop and a discharge this early is very likely to simply be normal vaginal secretions.

    Very soon your doctor will be able to see your baby’s heart beat on ultrasound and visualize if the baby is growing properly. I am thinking only the best wishes for you.
