Any person who has been trying to conceive knows that the two weeks between ovulation and the first day of your missed period is a long time to wait to confirm a pregnancy. Women can experience pregnancy symptoms soon after the egg becomes implanted in the wall, which is between 8 and 14 days after ovulation. By 8 weeks of pregnancy, 90 percent of women will experience symptoms of pregnancy. Early pregnancy and premenstrual symptoms are often similar and vague, leaving many women guessing whether they are pregnant or premenstrual.
And then, one day, you get a sign. Or is it a sign? Is that my mucus plug?
How much discharge you have changes from time to time and it usually gets heavier just before your period. Almost all women have more vaginal discharge in pregnancy. This is quite normal and happens for a few reasons. During pregnancy the cervix neck of the womb and vaginal walls get softer and discharge increases to help prevent any infections travelling up from the vagina to the womb.
