Dear Midwife,
I am nearly seven weeks pregnant, over the last week (not every day) I have noticed only when wiping after a wee, a thick discharge, white/yellow in color and only a small amount. I have had no pain or cramping and discharge does not smell. I am paranoid about miscarrying to the point me and my partner haven't celebrated the news yet?


Most women who are pregnant have an increased amount of their normal vaginal discharge. What you are describing sounds like this normal discharge. But if you are concerned, you can have your provider check to be sure at your next visit. Unless you see bright red bleeding, it is unlikely that you are miscarrying.
