Would you be worried about this ...discharge ahead

Sorry, this will be TMI.

I'm 5 w4d pregnant following two early losses. I've been having spits of globby off-white mucus come out of me. Mainly first thing in the morning for the past 3 mornings. I'm terrified that I'm losing a mucus plug and going to have another miscarriage. I didn't pay much attn. to my discharge in my two health pregnancies so I can't remember what it was like this early on.

Does this seem normal? Or should I be super concerned (spoiler alert: I am already super concerned)

I'm not saying I know either way, just wanted to share with you. In all five of my pregnancies I've had off white mucus off and on the whole time. It may not mean anything. Hope all goes well.

I get tons of cervical mucus when pregnant. I have to change my liner twice a day. It's gross. Totally normal, often an early sign of pregnancy. TMI but I get more, or it comes out more after a bowel movement. I wouldn't worry.

I'm almost 11 weeks, I've seen a healthy strong heartbeat, and I have lots of discharge. I don't think it's a cause for concern.

It was normal for me, for all 3 of my pregnancies, for the first 8 or so weeks.

So sorry that you're dealing with all that worry.

I get a ton of mucus at least all through the first trimester, like fertile cervical mucus when getting near ovulation.

your title.. I was worried there was a picture...

Normal for me too! Although now at 23 weeks I'm having the opposite problem (uncomfortable dryness!). But during my first trimester with this pregnancy I had tons of globby stuff (egg white/fertile type- and some was light green in color). It worried me too because it looked so much like my mucus plug when I slowly lost it with DD2 in the 2 weeks before her birth! I told my midwife about it and they did a test just to check for infection (no infection). I remember she said it was normal for a lot of women to experience it and it's not reason to worry!
