About this symptom

Increased Cervical Fluid

Many women notice more cervical fluid (vaginal discharge) than normal during early pregnancy. This is normal. It can be white and creamy (like lotion) or wet and slippery. It can occur steadily throughout the day or appear in bunches (like globs) especially when wiping or just once during the day. If you notice an unusual smell, colour or you have any itching you should consult your physician as these could be signs of thrush (yeast infection).

Includes: More cervical fluid than usual (creamy, wet, 'eggwhite' or sticky), or 'globs' of discharge (even if it only occurs once during the day)

3dpo tonight I noticed loads of white creamy cm. Very encouraging sign for me. Fingers crossed it leads to a bfp.
