Help! Advice! Discharge!

Sorry for the panicky title, I just am sick of calling my dr. and feeling like an idiot! So for the last couple of days I have had a discharge that almost looks like a mucous plug! :eek: But, it's increases then goes to normal, then comes back. It looks like I have a horrible cold and I blew my nose into the tissue (TMI sorry). I have no burning, itching, no smell. I feel her really low and she kicks my cervix A LOT! The only pain I've really had is RLP quite a bit lately. Oh and I've DTD twice since Monday. I think that's it. What could possibly be happening and does this warrant a call to the dr.?

Ps. I apologize for not being around too much lately, I am in the middle of finals! Crazy

It kind of sounds like your dh's ... Stuff. Lol. If you aren't cramping or bleeding I wouldn't worry about it. Even if it is coming from you, it is probably due to hormones.

Yeah I think as long as it's not yellow/green, and you have no bleeding, itching, or cramping, then you're fine. I know it's common to have an increase in discharge when pg. It could also be semen.

It is yellow. That is why I am so confused. My first thoughts were that it was semen though. But I really don't know. I've never had this before.

Hmm, I still think you're ok, but you might want to give the doctor a call just to be safe. There were a few times where I had BV without any other symptoms other than mild discharge. Better to be safe than sorry.

I wouldnt panic at all I have the same thing. It's mucous with a little bit of a yellow tint. Doc says its fine, the later in pregnancy some women get it. As long as its not smelly, clumpy, or a weird color its fine.

I've had what sounds very similar to what you described...I just talked to my doc about it yesterday. She was not concerned, said it was perfectly normal as long as I wasn't having itching, bleeding, or odd smells.

I was just reading last night in "What to expect when you're expecting" about month 6, weeks 23-27 and it says it's normal for vaginal discharge to increase this month... I would think it would be a combo of sex and discharge... if there's no bleeding or cramping I would think you are fine. Just googled and this is what I found too:

Is it my imagination or do I have a lot more vaginal discharge now?
It's not your imagination. It's quite common to have more vaginal discharge during pregnancy.
What you're noticing is probably normal leukorrhea – the odorless or mild-smelling milky discharge that you may have noticed in your underwear before you were pregnant. There's just a lot more of it now, partly because of increased estrogen production and greater blood flow to the vaginal area. This discharge is made up of secretions from the cervix and vagina, old cells from the walls of the vagina, and normal bacterial flora from the vagina.

Sounds completely normal as long as there isn't any bleeding or cramping accompanying it. I know it's irritating though. My d/c has picked up lately too and I feel so gross.
