I'm just over 37 weeks and I noticed a few days ago while I was wiping my vagina is swollen and it's darker in color. I have no pain and no itch (so I don't think it's infection). Is this normal in late pregnancy? And why? I was thinking that the increased blood flow and the fact that my baby has dropped is causing this. (More pressure causing painless swelling and increased blood flow causing the change in color) I don't know though, it was just a thought.
Off topic, but I have another question. Around the same time I noticed the swelling I noticed a white, sometimes tinged in yellow, snotty discharge. There is no odor and it's not very liquidy, its more..clumpy...like snot. I know I'm probably not describing it the best, sorry. I was wondering if this could be the start of me losing my mucous plug?
