  • It might be a YI or bacterial vaginosis. Might just have your OB check at your next appt. Have you noticed changes in discharge consistency, amount, or color?

  • if you've got ANYTHING strange going on with your mommy parts when you're pregnant ask your gyno about it right away! it's probably a yeast infection but it could be a serious infection.

  • You should go in to see your OB/GYN. Don't Panic!!!! It could be Hormones. It could be a Mild Yeast Infection. OR It could be - Bacterial Vaginitis... The Last Two Are Very Common During Pregnancies... BUT Need To Be Addressed/Checked Out ASAP.... And if your doctor was anything like my 2nd OB - INSISIT on a Vaginal Swab - My OB Treated my Odor w/out doing a swab. I Walked Around for 10 wks with B.V. Infection. That was not good for me or my baby...

    Good Luck - and just go see your OB/GYN ASAP.
