I am 36 weeks pregnant and getting thick yellow discharge. Am i going into labor soon ?

I m 36 weeks pregnant & have lost 3 clear/white pieces of mucus over the past month, 2 of those within the past week. Having horrible lower back pain , labor stopped at 33 weeks, still getting uncomfortable contractions, 1cm dilated, starting to thin out, & now having LOTS of thick off white/yellow discharge. What does all of this mean? Will I be going into labor soon? I am 28 years old, this is my 4th pregnancy , but my 3rd child. My first son was born about 1 month early 11 1/2 years ago. This baby is my 1st girl, and at 33 weeks pregnant, dr s said she was measuring at 35 weeks.

Hi
You could go into labour soon.Esp since you have ahistory of preterm labout.You need to have a pv examination.Ig your cervix is thinning out,then you will mostly go into early labour.Go to the hospital.

I m 38 weeks with my first. On the 13th late at night i had a little spotting. Everyday after that i find slight light brown discharge only when i wipe. It comes and it goes. Last ine was also light browndischarge this time it was tinged with a little blood . Mucousy like stringed discharge that is. A week ago the doctor told me i was 1cm dilated. Could it be that I m losing my mucus plug and dilating. My appointment was rescheduled for friday due to the fact that he won t be in today or tomorrow. Still feel my babys movements so I m not worried. I m just wanting to know how many cm i am now but cant find out til friday. Worried i might go into labor soon. How long after the mucus plug dislodges when can i go into labor could it be days or hours. I feel some pressure near my vaginal area not too bad. Only when i m laying down and when i move certain way it hurts. I m extremly sore other that i feel fine

I dont usually wear tampons but wore one yesterday. When I took it out last last I felt a dull pain when urinating. This morning I went to urinate and felt the same pain. There is no urge to urininate any more than normal or a feeling of not emptying my bladder. Could this be the beginning stages of a UTI or problems from the tampon. I dont find them to be very easy to come out once they're in. My cervix sits very far back.

hi, my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex back in august. Im still bleeding every month but i dont have clots or cramps and i used to have horrible cramps. I've gained 13lbs but i really don't look pregnant and everyday i feel flutters in my lower abdomen but im not sure if it's just my nerves twiching, my feet swell,i get leg cramps, and sometimes pain in my lower abdomen there are also times when my cervix hurts a little, and i have tons of vaginal discharge.I have taken numerous hpt's all negative and i've been to the doctor's twice once for a urine test and once for a blood pg test when i would have been 8weeks all negative i asked for an ultrasound but was told i could not have one since my results were negative. i do not have health insurance so i have to pay for my doctor's vists out of pocket. Im a little hesitant about having another blood test since the first was negative and it costs me $150. i would currently be 23 weeks if i am pregnant. i have been taking prenatal vitamins just in case. I would be grateful for any advice
