the last few days I've noticed my urine has been kinda oily. Today I've felt more tightness, and cramping. . .and today when I peed I noticed a white substance in the urine as well. Could that be the mucus plug or just regular vaginal discharge?! This is my first baby and so I have no idea... Anyone who could help I would much appreciate it!

I have had protein in my urine for most of this pregnancy, not a lot so the doctors aren't concerned but sometimes when I pee I notice what looks like whitish swirls floating on top of the toilet water kind of like when you see oil on water, I'm assuming thats the protein. Ask your doctor if they are finding trace protein in your urine, they may not have bothered mentioning it to you if they weren't concerned.

i lost my plug in the hospital at 33 weeks and i was shocked at how different it was from what i was expecting! i expected to go to the bathroom and find (excuse the graphic description!) a huge glob of bloody snot in my panties...but mine cane out in pieces, but the big part of it was in the toilet. it looked like a little piece of white tissue, about an inch long and a cm or so wide and it had 2 little blood spots on it. if i wasnt paying attention, i would have completely missed it! i know that's quite graphic, but i just wanted to get my point across about how minor it is.

the white stuff you saw could probably be your plug. you should probably call your doctor, or since its after business hours you can call the ob ward at the hospital, and see if they want you to come get checked out. if your water did break, you need to get to the doc soon...or even if you just have a leak.

good luck!
