Last night after I used the toilet I noticed a large yellow glob on the tp. Now this was different than the almost cream like consistency of the yellow/white discharge that I've had so far.this yellow glob was like snot consistency. When I I touched it, the stuff actually stretched like 3-4 inches from my fingertip down to the tp. I have no clue what it was or could be.
My LO is barely moving around today. I figure I will give him till about 6 p.m before i phone my doctor in regards to that.
best to call doctor -- I've had some more yucky discharge as well, but at ob/gyn appointment last week, asked her to check my urine for possible UTI and I was fine -- but it has been somewhat copious (lots) in the am, but not anything on the panty liner (WTF?), and baby's activities are normal....so, if in doubt, always call the doctor!
let me know what they say as am curious myself....
Its kinda odd that you mention a UTI because i was sent to the hospital for urine tests on Friday because my doctors found protein in my urine that morning. My doctors office is closed all weekend. Needless to say, the earliest they will even bother calling me back will be tomorrow. They drive me nuts because they always take so long to give me my test results.
my doctor said it was 'normal' at this stage of pregnancy (and it was not smelly or itchy (well, a little but I think it's because it's swollen down there and lots of moisture, but use cotton undies), and its slight yellow tinge is not unusual -- I have been drinking extra cranberry juice just in case it is a urinary problem, but I think (I hope....) it's normal....(but I have heard green, brownish, smelly, etc., is NOT okay)....
I had this start at 32 weeks and had it every day since. Showed midwife who said it was normal mucus discharge (sure as hell doesn't look normal and like my regular stuff!). From my own research i've come to the conclusion that it's the outside of the mucus plug. I even got a swab and it was clear. It's thick and on white toilet paper looks almost green/yellow but on black underwear looks like a white/clear blob.
I didn't end up calling my doctors tonight since my LO moved around a little bit later on in the afternoon. I guess i will be asking them about this, my urine test results and another issue tomorrow. It makes me crazy that i cant easily contact them with questions on the weekend.
