User :   I am 23 weeks pregnant. My doctor said my cervix is starting to open and to rest. I see him again in a week. I have history of preterm labor and had a recent LEEP procedure. for the past couple of days i have had a yellowish/clear discharge. twice it has been thick (about half the size of a pea) should I be very worried?
Doctor :   hi

Doctor :   only a pea size -was it foul smalling
User :   no, no smell at all
User :   i was worried it was my mucus plug. is it normal for it to come out little by little during pregnancy? if so, does it regenerate?
