  • I would call the doctor, I dont know if anyone else on here has had that but all I know is that I didn't have it til 37 weeks and it was my mucas plug, and a few days later....welcome baby. I would call OB at least for their opinion...

  • I had lots of discharge my ENTIRE pregnancy. Seriously, I should have bought stock in Carefree, LOL! I never had any infections or anything, just lotsa wetness! If you're concerned, you should ALWAYS call your doc...but don't stress, it's probably just Mommy-goo. :)

  • Is it normal to have it the WHOLE pregnancy? hahaha I am 30 weeks pregnant and have had it since day one. I hate having a slug in my panties constantly. Eww.... That went a little too far. But seriously, I have to change panty liners around three times a day.
