Is this normal? should i be worried? could be tmi i guess

I'm due the twenty fifth. yesterday and today i've been having irregular contractions. i noticed in the toilet both yesterday and today this discharge that was very thin almost like water but its was white like milk. it really looked like i poored milk into the toilet or maybe thin coffee creamer... i'd say it was about a tablespoons worth each time. maybe a little less. is this normal? any cause for concern? this is my second baby but this never happened with the first...

  • That sounds like discharge. It's crazy how much discharge you make in your third trimester! I actually had a trip to L&D thinking my water had broken thanks to discharge. When my water DID break (which happened before I had contractions), it was like I was peeing uncontrollably. When I would get up if I'd been sitting for awhile, it would overflow a maxipad. I actually thought I was just having bladder control issues until it turned pink (the cervix bleeds as it dilates).
