  • I haven't gone through that, but I would call and see what they think. Let them know that you have an appointment tomorrow. Good luck!

  • yellow discharge would make me a little nervous, I would call just to see what they think? But at this time it could probably wait til your appt.

  • I would wait till your appointment. If your really nervous about it then just give them a call but you have an appointment tomorrow and tell them that.

    Another thing I try very hard not to take any advise from a mothers helper at all. If you don't have children then you have nothing to offer me for advise. (I am not trying to start trouble.)

    Why the hell should she go to the ER (or L&D) for possible thinning out? Thinning out at 34 weeks is totally normal! Its people like you who scare moms to be! Assuming your guess is correct (and I do agree, she is probably thinning out) then there is NO reason what-so-ever to rush to the hospital, or to the doctor for that matter!

    Period type cramps are normal from here on out in pregnancy. Your body has alot of changes to make prior to labor & delivery. I personally would not go to the doc, L&D or ER for discharge (as long as it doesnt itch) or for period type cramps
