What causes abdominal pain during 38 weeks pregnancy?
nothing to worry, common phenomenon
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
It is very common to have mucoid discharge in last few weeks of pregnancy and thus there is nothing to worry.
But in case the discharge gets very watery and almost like urine then visit your gynecologist for examination at the earliest.
Thank you vfor your answer. But my mucoid discharge comes along with my stool. it is not vaginal. is this normal for the white mucus to come out together with loose stools?
it is common
Yes it is common but usually occasional and not associated with pain abdomen or painful passage of stools.
So if (as you stated) it is simple mucus then nothing to worry.
normal if pain resembles pain in periods
But I would like to know if the abdominal pain is related to stool activity, I mean you feel like passing stools after pain abdomen.
Or this pain abdomen is just a mild cramp like activity related to uterine contraction like in periods.
In latter situation there is nothing to worry as it is very common but in case pain is followed by passage of stools then visit a surgeon for proper examination.
surgeon opinion after delivery
Yes mam, I understand your anxiety related to the issue.
There is no emergency situation in whole of the symptom profile mentioned by you.
And you are very well near to your delivery so after delivery get a proper examination by a surgeon.
Surgical examination will include internal examination of your anal canal and rectum by special instruments but in case he will feel like can advise you colonoscopy too.
So just relax and may God bless you with a healthy baby soon.
All the best
I will schedule a colonoscopy one month after the baby's birth, just to be calm. I had a colonoscopy when I was 2 months pregnant, but it only went to 40 cm of the colon where they found the polip. This mucus that comes with the stool is usually related to this latter part of the colon? I am correct?
Thank you so very much again.
usually due to lower half of canal
Yes dear most of the times mucus and bright blood if present in stools is usually due to lesion (if at all) in the later half of the alimentary canal.
And its always good to be vigilant so that if at all any lesion is there can be dealt at the earliest.
Wish you the best of health.
I am sorry for so many questions. I am very anxious.
colonoscopy after delivery
I can totally understand the anxiety you are suffering from but in my opinion there is not much to worry but still due to your previous history of polyp a repeat colonoscopy is needed after delivery.
All the best
