I need HEEELP!! :(

The Dr.'s tell me that i'm 26 weeks pregnant, but my family and EVERYONE else is telling me that me and my baby(from the ultrasounds and pics) look farther along then that. They think I could go into labor next month/any time after christmas, instead of in March like the Dr.'s are saying.

My problem is, about an hour or so ago I was walking around Wal-Mart with my hubby picking up a few baby things and I started having these intense belly pains. My son is moving fine though so I don't think he's hurt. We got home and I went to the bathroom and theres a little bit of this clearish white mucus in my panties(underwear whatever u call them). At first I just figured it was vaginal discharge, but it doesn't look or smell like it at all. (Sry if i'm grossing anyone out it just looked wierd to me.)

I looked some things up online about mucus plugs and i was wondering if it's possible that my mucus plug is coming out already at 26 weeks.. If i'm farther along then that (my family thinks by a month), I could be like 30 weeks along. Does that mean I could be going into labor soon??? I'm panicking because if i'm not like 30 weeks and i'm 26 weeks then isn't that dangerous for my baby? I'm afraid to bring it up to my mom, my husband or my Dr. because I don't want to seem stupid.

Any suggestions? Could I be loosing my mucus plug? Could I really go into labor at any time? I'm scared...

p.s.- this is my first pregnancy.

i agree with jennifer, i'm almost 30 weeks pregnant and i ask my dr questions all the time, sometimes i feel a little silly but i figure if i'm worried about it, i should ask the doctor. you could be getting braxton hicks contractions, and of course the more stressed out about something you are, the more you start to notice when i was around 26 weeks discharge became much more frequent. i don't know if it helps, but don't be afraid to talk to your dr about any concerns you are having.

I agree. Call your doctor if you're concerned. Most clinics have the phone nurse or whatever that you can call to ask a question without actually having to go in. They'd likely be able to tell you whether you needed to be examined or not. I also agree with Jennifer, trust the doctor.

Listen to your doctor. Unless anyone in your family are doctors i wouldnt listen to them. Your bub could just be a bigger bub than others.

If you are worried in anyway just go a for a visit to your doctor and talk to them about this.

Good luck
