Is a increase in vaginal discharge at 37 wks normal?

as of tomorrow i will be 37 wks pregnant and i have noticed that i have had a major increase in vaginal discharge to the point where i can use the restroom and wipe n just see the oozyness but can also see clumps of discharge in the toilet. but the thing that really got me blown is the fact that i been wearing a panty liner n it has a brown tinge to it as does the discharge when i wipe what could that mean?

  • I hate to sound cliche, but I would just call my doctor. When my mucus plug fell out, I was well into labor. I only have one living child. I've lost 2 pregnancies...so I only have one "real" labor to account for.
